This week I ended up in the ER via ambulance due to T1 hyperglycemia. What made it all so strange was that my body was behaving in a way I would describe as having mild epileptic tremors. It was also affecting my speech as well. I never became unconscious. My last A1c (within the last 7 days or so) was 6.3. Prior to this happening I was freaking out about high sugars that made no sense. Did a walk through with Medtronic to check my pump and nothing came of that. No fever, and during ER visit no infections or other causes for highs.
Some issues. I now see a PA for my endo care who obsesses constantly over lows, and is constantly setting and resetting basal rates in my pump. Meanwhile I obsess over the unexplained highs that refuse to budge, up to and including having to go the injection route to bring them down, only to later within the same 24 hours having them bounce back up. The highs I speak of here are in the 300s.
My question is have any of you gone through this? My management has been in the good to excellent category since my diagnosis 4 years ago (I am 66 now).
I have an anxiety disorder that also interferes with my sugars. My diet is vegetarian, I weigh about 119 pounds.
Will stop here, but would certainly appreciate any knowledge and/or advice you have.
