Hyperglycemia, Diabetes, and Managing Blood Sugar
So, after a miserable 10 hours of blood tests it's confirmed you have hyperglycemia. Well now isn't the time to sit back and get depressed. Look at the positive side, now you know why you've been tired and worn out for all of this time. Diagnosed in 1982 with hyperglycemia it was harder to maintain a steady blood sugar rate. These days with the advanced technology available for instantly checking blood sugar, the disease is easier to manage.
You can now pick up blood sugar monitors that give you instant notification of your blood sugar level. Back in that day it was impossible to monitor this vital information. Now you can cruise down to the nearest Wal-Mart and pick one up off of the shelves.
Sometimes the easiest way to monitor your blood sugar is to stop and reflect on how you are feeling at that particular moment and then check your blood. If you get to a point where you know where your levels are before checking you can recognize the patterns of behavior and adjust your life accordingly. Sure, it's important to keep your monitor on you but after awhile you'll automatically recognize the way that you're feel and be prepared to take the appropriate action prior to getting that familiar sick feeling.
You need to get to a point in your life that you can recognize how you feel and adjust your diet accordingly, then you'll have the disease whipped. The problem is it takes some "on the job" training to recognize the symptoms and how your body reacts to the amount of sugar in your blood. The only way to get to this point is to train yourself as to the warning signs of a dangerous low blood sugar level. This is not to replace the family doctor's advice, just be observant of your own body.
We're not accustomed to this type of behavior so it may take awhile, but don't give up! Before long you'll be managing yourself without the pain in your finger from testing your blood..
