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.

    Wow that is not good. diabetes is very high on my husbands side of the family,his Mom would not listen & ate what ever she wanted then 3 days before she went to the Doctor she ate what she was suppose to . I would try to talk to her as other family members would but she did what she wanted, she got a small sore on her foot would not heal.She ended up with both legs off at 69 then gave up refused to eat then passed away.She refused to lose weight also.My sister in law died at 50 from diabetes & so did her son at 28 & her children have it now ( 4 of them ) My grandfather had it & he would not listen he passed away also. I am trying to watch what I eat but that disease scares me. My husband needs to lose also, so we are both trying to get a hold of our heath before we end up with diabetes. I am sorry if I sound like gloom & doom but I do not want this to happen to you. Take charge of your health!!!
    Take care
