Re: Could i have hyperglcemia?

some of those numbers are in the diabetic range. I would consult with a Dr.

If you are overweight, losing some weight can make a huge difference
Exercise can improve things considerably
Diet and possibly meds can help you control it if the Dr diagnosis is diabetes

Re: Could i have hyperglcemia?

I have hypoglycemia. The symptoms are dizziness, sweating, shaking. It sounds like you could be diabetic. See you doctor. Good luck!

Re: Could i have hyperglcemia?

It definitely sounds like you have diabetes. I'm curious...how are you getting tested so often? Do you have your own meter? And how do you know you have protein in your urine...did the doc test that urine sample and then inform you it showed protein?

If your doctor knows about these blood glucose results and that you have protein in your urine, he/she is being totally negligent by not treating you for diabetes. You must find out what type and get treatment right away...even if the treatment is only, for now, diet and exercise. If you're not overweight, then a GAD antibody test and a C-peptide test should be done to rule out T1. If it's not T1, then it's T2 and diet and exercise, possibly combined with some oral medication such as glucophage, will be needed.

Re: Could i have hyperglcemia?

Oh gosh, Dolphin...could be any number of things, but from your numbers, I'm guessing your T2 is not well controlled. Your fasting blood glucose levels should be less than 6.6 and more like 5.5; and your two-hour after meals levels should be less than 8.9 (some would even say less than 7.8).

Is your doctor doing A1c tests? Those are the tests that tell your average blood glucose levels over the previous 8-12 weeks? If so, that number should be less than 7%.

You didn't mention your age (unless your 43 ?) or if you are overweight. If not overweight, it's possible you may have been misdiagnosed as a Type 2 when your actually a type 1. More likely, however, is that you are a T2 who needs more glucophage than you are taking or that you need to add another medication, such as a sulfonyurea. I would, however, suggest upping the glucophage first. Glucophage makes your cells less resistant to insulin and doesn't wear out your pancreas as quickly as the sulfonyureas, which make your pancreas squeeze out extra insulin.

The numbness in your hands probably has less to do with urination than simply the position your hands are in at the time. You may already have some nerve damage from high blood glucose levels.

As for urgency with only a small amount of urine passing...that may be unrelated to diabetes and could be indicative of a bladder infection. They'll need to do a culture for that and get you on an antibiotic if necessary. But no matter what, you have got to get your numbers under better control quickly.
