I am in Canada at the moment without a GP as I came over from the UK last December.
I would appreciate any help and information as I feel everyone is telling me different and make it very confusing for someone who is new to Diabetes. I have asked about the difference in blood sugar readings and someone said times it by 18 and someone else said divide by 18.
I am getting various diets to follow low carb and high fat. I do have RA/RD as well as thyroid which I take 125mg per day thyroxin for approx. 35 years. I have been told that I have steroid induced diabetes and once I can start to reduce and stop the steroids I will no longer be diabetic.
I have had various health issues and various medications, I was taking Tocilzumab infusions but had problems with the last 2 infusions with throbbing pains up my spine BP 220 and my BS dropped to 2.1
my bs in a morning is about 12.1 and increases throughout the day. My sister has been diabetic for many years and is on insulin.
My diabetes nurse sold me on my last visit never to snack, only three meals a day, but I do feel hungry in the evening and so much so I am unable to sleep.
I did go on a education day before I came over which I do feel it helped but now that my bs is 12.1 first thing and is increasing it does concern me.
I would appreciate any advise possible. I will be able to see a GP in another month.
