I woke up 9:30 am on Friday 22 Sept 2017 my head was spinning very violently seeing my room spinning all over - when infact nothing was happening. It was infact a severe Vertigo, Hyperglycemia and Ketoacidosis! Diagnosed Type 2 Diabetic. http://www.bmj.com/content/346/bmj.f3501 I was screaming and sweating heavily. I tried to get up but I just kept falling down. My mother called for the ambulance straightaway but they did not arrive until about an hour later. At the A & E, I was given Potassium, Insulin, Glucose etc. and had blood samples taken every hour for signs of Ketones and to test Blood Glucose levels.The doctors said that I was very lucky to survive and I could have gone into coma. To my surprise, I was discharged the next day. I went home feeling absolutely exhausted, very weak and confused. And I did not hear back from my GP or DN until 6 weeks later. Communication between myself, the NHS and GP was awful. I wish there was a clearer line of communication straightaway and follow-up. My DN conducted a blood test and the BG was 12%. I was put on daily units of insulin straightaway. Anyway I have been doing low-carb/high fat diet since and doing light exercises. Also been taking Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Multivitamins, Minerals, Cinnamon, Pomegranate Extract, Cod Liver Oil, Garlic Food Supplements. I have lost about half a stone since diagnosis. Thank God I'm still alive. Next A1c will be mid-December 2017. Wish me luck guys and look after your health!
