I finally went and saw the doctor after a week of symptoms. They took my blood sugar and I was at 465. Wow. Because of the late hour my doctor strongly recommended that I go to the ER. He also recommended that my wife drive me since my sugar was so high. I was in the ER for 5 hours, got two bags of fluids, 22 units of insulin, and my sugar was still over 300 the next morning. I have a followup appointment tomorrow morning with my doctor to get a full diagnosis as to what this is. I guess it's a good thing I've lost 24 pounds over the last 10 weeks. I've been told I need to lose 100 more. SparkPeople is already helping by giving me someplace to track my food, especially my carb intake. I feel like I have a good support structure starting. Thank you, SparkPeople, for providing a place for all of us to see what we are doing each day.
