Hon don’t worry relax and lets find a solution to the hydration maybe
CF with Diabetes makes it really really hard to stay hydrated. Even if your BG was normal all the time because you lose more salt you don’t have a good water balance like normal because of the CF.
If you have High Blood Pressure ignore what I am going to say but I doubt you do in fact my guess is you run low sometimes with a bit higher pulse.
I put propell dry mix into water but it is diluted. 3 packets to about 21/2 liters. I drink that all day. Eat salt if you can not stand to put some on your hand and in your mouth 3 times a day then use something like green beans or something you can put alot of salt on in small amounts. I don’t mean a big pile of salt I mean some on your hand and lick it. Salt is the counter to sugar. H BG means more sugar molecules that pull water and salt from your body. Increasing your salt helps to counter the water loss.
I have salt pills I could take in massive amounts but the tummy problems they cause are not worth it. The thing you have to watch for is to much salt causing bloating cause that slows your digestion but if you drink something like I do it will help prevent that. Plain water may not be good for you like it is for normal people since you probably tend to have low salt levels as well as chloride. You want to find a good balance with the salt just enough to help you keep fluid in your body but not enough to bloat you. Once your better hydrated you should start to see you BG level out.
You may have to for a bit do the worst things for diabetics and eat easy to digest carbs. You want to in a natural way get your intestines moving to mucus is expelled. But be careful some could dehydrate you. Coffee is a good simulate for your intestines it also can dehydrate so a cup of half caffeinated and half de caffeinated made in a french press like fashion will help without pulling to much hydration. Dried prunes, fresh pears with skin and apples are good cause they bind in the intestines pulling mucus with them. Stay away from any rice for a bit since that is often used to slow and stop over active tummies. Egg is a simple protein. Fresh spinach, green beans, pinto beans or black beans along with an orange (the orange is to help absorb iron which you may or may not need) are good as they help the intestines and have Vitamin K! Which you are probably on the low end of just do not ever take it as a pill unless a doc says D,E,A and K are not water soluble and can build in the body. Take a B complex if you are allowed it help the tummy and is water soluble. Cereal like grape nuts, Wheat chex and believe it or not frosted mini wheat’s are really good for CFers not so much diabetics though but they have phosphorus which you may be on the low end and a whole bunch of vitamins and minerals.
Salty, I am blessed I don’t have the massive lung involvement most CFers do but I have much more digestive involvement then most CFers this is how I survive. For the first 3 years of diabetes I spent mostly dying over and over with hydration and electrolyte issue’s. It did not matter what my BG was it is the monster between the two diseases. If you have to eat in a non friendly diabetic way to stay hydrated and keep your tummy working then do it and learn to cover with insulin. We have to stay ahead of the CF when we can.
