Hi All, I know I've not posted for so long but I have been quite unwell this past year. Was referred to a neurologist after some months of all sorts of pains plus problems with forgetting things mid sentence, dropping things etc and neurologist diagnosed me with blocked nerves in the brain earlier this year,due to stress overload and put me on Pregabalin for 6 months. I was slowly weaning myself off those when I had a nasty fall downstairs, three weeks ago today. I never got checked out because I didn't think I'd broken anything and I didn't bang my head. I just felt bruised and badly shaken. Well, within a couple of days, I started to feel unwell...nauseous,pain behind my eyes,really tired, lost my appetite etc. my blood sugars went through the roof and even with correction doses, I could not get readings down. i finally staggered into my G.P. Who took one look at me and phoned the hospital direct to get me admitted immediately. I am eternally grateful to my G.P. At the hospital they pretty soon picked up my liver profile was deranged and I had many, many tests. Some of the more specialised test results are still outstanding but a couple of days ago I showed positive in a blood test for glandular fever. Quite a surprise to me but the week I had in hospital was very distressing because they didn't seem to give a damn about my high blood sugars. I was constantly on reading of 14- 23.4 Having never been so ill before,since being diagnosed as diabetic 11 years ago (I am 56) I had no clue how to bring my sugars down other than to up my insulin and that didn't seem to work.nurses openly admitted they didn't understand insulin dosaging, so I was glad to come home and now I've been able to get my readings down a bit but they still climb high in the evening. I am now on about 150% more Lantus but am scared to overdo it in case I send myself hypo. Has anyone else ever had Glandular Fever and Type 1 diabetes? If so, how did you manage things and how long did it take you to make a full recovery? I know there is no treatment for glandular fever and doc warned me I could feel poorly for months but I've just read the virus stays in your body for life and I want some positive feedback. All the chat forums I've looked at seem a bit 'doom and gloom' and I can find nothing about diabetics coping with G.F. Any feedback or advice would be so much appreciated. Thank you for reading.
