Well, .......... Only being diagnosed recently, with "pre-diabetes" my HbA1c was 47- so i thought ok, i can do this, i can change my diet i can eat healthier, its not diabetes ..........., how stupid and niave was I?? I went out and bought lancets, accue reader, urine testing strips, fruit,veg etc and im more confused than ever.
Im always tired, have either manic energy or none at all......... I try and eat 3 meals a day with fruit for snacks but hunger takes over, i get this sickening feeling, almost a sense of dread, like something is going to happen. Im always thirsty and then drink water but still feel like ive eaten sand......,,. Then the more i drink the more im on the toilet...... Im becoming obsessive in reading my BS- tonight i had the biggest shock, normally i float between 6.8-9.4 tonight before dinner it read 17.0 i ate a grilled chicken salad and 2 hours later read 7.8 ........... Is this normal??? I dont know, ......this is the most confusing diagnosis and i really dont have a clue...........inever realised how it can affect your life, if this is "pre-diabetes" then i still have worse hurdles to overcome. Not a happy prospect- maybe this blog might help and hearing how others live with this awful illness, may help me understand. : )
