    Had a very unusual hi for no reason this afternoon back to 5.8 now but the pain and tenderness in the lower back and sides just wanted some advice as to possible reasons I did think possible kidneys as I've had trouble in past but nothing like this before it's still a bit tender know :-(

    As boring as it may sound, but the only advice I would give is to see your Dr and get the cause of your tenderness investigated, especially so if it's been present for some time.

    They do say if it's been controlled really well then you lose the ability of wareness you could try running it a bit high for a week or too to get some awareness back ?? Have you tried this ???

    Sorry might have confused people it's not happened for some time I was born with kidney problems 1963 and was on a high dose of steroids till '75 come off them and developed type 1 I take lots of other meds but nothing directly associated with the kidneys as such. I never get that high readings since being on a pump 1999, I just thought the intensity of pain and soreness of area must be related to the reading and its around the kidney area ? Also seeing my main GP on 11th

    Sometimes it's because your body's so used to keeping low your body don't realise but when you run your bloods high then you drop back to normal your body pattern chances which will bring some sensation back into the body try it I'm sure it will work

    Thanks for the reply, as you know any pain or stress can cause bg levels to rise so this would explain your unusual high bg reading, hope you get some answers on the 11th.
