That is some cause and effect!

Hello we've had quite a few events. My wife's surgery went well, but she's having a rather rough recovery. Has a follow up appointment next week. Her blood sugar has been pretty good, so that's a positive.

Possom i hope that pricey medicine will be worth it! Managing the costs is always an added challenge. I hope you are having more good nights in your own bed.

Marylin thank you. I hope you can see your doctors soon, and that they will be helpful to you.

Welcome to new posters, and i hope everyone is feeling well and can have a good weekend!

So its like your dog is trying to alert you that there is a potential problem.

Ahh that makes sense.

Do you take insulin? With blood sugar that high I would think so. Try to take your blood sugar more often. I take mine five times a day.

I too think I am in danger with blood sugars that high so I am immediately cutting out all sugar and chocolate and soda out of my diet,and I will eat some chicken and more protein.

I am focused now on bringing my blood sugars down,yesterday after a sugar binge eating ice creme,chocolate and soda and alcohol I realised my blood sugars were way too high.I rose at 5am this morning,my blood sugar was 459,so that is terrible.I had breakfast and took my medications.I will measure again at 7am and avoid any foods with added sugar.I will take it two hours at a time and monitor frequently what my blood sugars are doing.There is no doubt that I am a sugar addict and I have to beat this addiction because it is putting me in danger of severe diabetic complications.I am still due to see the diabetic nurse on July 7th.
