When Nate was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes all I remember is that his bg was over 500 ---- I'm not sure they ever game me an exact number. In the ped's office they just used a regular glucometer so it probably just said HIGH. The hospital stay is all a blur now so I don't remember the official dx bg.
The 1st year after Nate's diagnosis we saw a lot of high numbers and the word HIGH on the meter frequently. I've read so many times how terrible high blood glucose makes people feel. Stomach aches, vomiting, and sluggish. I've even heard it compared to the worst hangover ever! UGH! --- yea for me that would be a red wine hangover. :) For Nate he has never acted any different. He'd be rocking a high bg and still happy as a clam.
Lately though, things have changed. He now feels his highs (still no hypos). He feels bad. He cries and moans. He tells me his tummy hurts and he is so sluggish. It. Is. Heartbreaking. Last night he went high after a pod change while sleeping and I woke up to him crying and moaning in his sleep. Poor little guy!
I don't know if it is because he is older and becoming more aware of how he is feeling or if because we have tighter control the higher numbers are just feeling bad. Whatever the reason ---- being HIGH sucks!
Keep Calm and RAGE BOLUS!!
