Hi everyone! I am a 31 year old male and a month ago I was driving to work and noticed my distant vision was blurred. After a few days I went to the opticians who recommended I check my blood glucose and it was 17mmol/l fasted. I was admitted into hospital for two nights until and came out with Novorapid and Lantus pens. I am still yet to be diagnosed as type 1 or 2 but I am being treated as type 1 until my blood results come back. My nurse told me that the urine sample had come back with presence of insulin so I could be type 2 but we'll see. There is a history of type 2 in my family so I'm betting on that. I take a split dose of Lantus (rise and retire) and 1 unit of Novorapid per 10g of carbs at meal times. My fasting blood glucose is around 8mmol/l now and following my first meal (and until I go to bed) its anywhere between 5-8 so I'm relatively pleased with that. I am hoping to bring the fasting glucose down to 5-6 in the coming weeks. I'm keeping my carbs to below 150g at the moment. I'm guessing that with these numbers on insulin, it's unlikely (if I'm type 2) that I could ever get to tablets/diet? My vision went back to normal a few days after I left hospital however over the last few days it's gone blurry again which is hugely frustrating. My nurse told me that this is normal and it will clear up as my body gets used to the lower blood glucose. How long can I expect this to last? My second question regarding my cholesterol which is too high at 5.6. I am overweight but losing (6foot 1, 247lbs now, was 305lbs) and am very active - I run 5ks, cycle and lift weights. Is it fairly likely that my cholesterol will come down as my blood glucose is maintained at a lower level? I am stick to lowish carb, high fat and my one worry is if dietary fat will make my lipids worse. My average blood pressure is 125/79 having tested it morning and night for two weeks - is it this ok? Thank you guys.
