    I would strongly recommend you see a diabetes nurse or endocrinologist

    You should check your ketones. I came out of hospital on Friday after being DKA...

    Hi,

    The figure you gave equates to 6.8Mmol... If your mg/dl number is correct? This is not a majorly high figure.
    What insulin are you prescribed?
    We can't diagnose, but I would strongly advise seeing a doctor regarding your waterworks issue..

    I would be intensly happy with 6.8 !!! Maybe you have a bladder infection which usually causes frequent visits to the loo. If you had kidney problems you would have swollen ankles, itchy skin etc. But important is that you need to see your GP/diabetic nurse. A bladder infection can be cured easily with antibiotics.

    As maria says, it sounds very much like cystitis. I hope it goes away with drinking water or an OTC remedy but I'd ask a pharmacist or GP for further advice especially if it is accompanied by back ache, fever or excessive ketones (sure sign of infection) .
