Re: kidney transplant

Hi there. I have had diabetes since 1966 and that was what caused my kidney failure. I can't relate to getting diabetes, but I can tell you that you need to get your blood sugars under control. I am surprised that your doctors are allowing it to go that high. Unfortunately, the higher and the longer your blood sugars are high, the harder it will be on your kidney transplant. I would strongly recommend that you discuss this with your doctors and immediately try to get your blood sugars down.

Have they done a hemoglobin a1c test to see what your average blood sugar has been for the last 3 months?

Sorry I can't be more help, but high blood sugar will damage your kidney and it needs to be dealt with.

Good luck.

Cora
