This has been an exiciting week of ups and downs. Sunday I went to help a friend and had to leave early because I was in so much pain. I went to the doctor and was sent to the ER with possible kidney stones. I had not been eating so my blood sugars were low. The ER doctor gave me a CT scan with contrast. I was put on a liquid diet and admitted for the night.
Sometime in the middle of the night the pain subsided and no one put me on a "diabetic diet". I was told that because I had contrast with my CT scan I could not take my medication. It was great having the freedom to order off the regular menu and without my medicaiton it was a great test of my low carb diet. I never went over 108 which for a normal person is no big deal but for a diabetic it was fantastic.
Monday night I came home. Tuesday I went to work. While enjoying my time off for the Thanksgiving weekend, I experienced a very low blood sugar. Today my doctor cut my medication in half and suggested I increase my carb intake. WAHOO - I am starting OWL's.
