I was in the ICU last week with DKA. My sugars came down pretty quickly and I was home after only three days in the hospital. Now I’m working on stabilizing my sugar levels. They’re still high, but they’re about half of what they were prior to the hospital visit.
I’ve been very weak, tired, woozy and nauseous since coming home. Today was much better but I’m wondering if this is common? How long might this last? What other “after effects” are common?
Right now, every weird pang or pop freaks me out that I’m going DKA again. I know it’s not happening, but until my levels are back in normal range I’m going to worry. Maybe I just need some support knowing that it’s going to be okay. I don’t ever want to go through this again.
