after feeling quite unwell for a while,i managed to get a virus on top,
a fever with it running at 105.3 for a few days on the run,left me with
extreme lethargy, and dehydration. and generally felt awful.
so i visited my local walk in hospital..dr gave me antibiotics and said i had
gastro-enteritis. i took the tablets for two days and noticed a rash covering
my body..mehhhh....so i went back to the walk in hospital,as this was one of the
side effects...met with another doctor,who got a nurse to do a blood glucose
test...which had a reading of 17.4, she said she was almost positive i was diabetic
due to the long list of things i told her,and said no way was it a gastro problem.
i was advised to have bloods done at my own gp which i did before i went away.
she advised me to buy some ketone sticks,and if i had a positive result go to A&E
my OH bought me a monitor and the week away i ran between 8-15
came back from vacation,eventually got my results and i'm Type 2.
he wants me to control it by diet and exercise.
so anyone here with diabetes ?
my grandfather had it,and my brother has Type1
