I have a great doctor and I rely on her in a big way.
I was struggling to get through my tour and finally decided to make an appointment to meet with my doctor. It was truly one of the most frightening moments of my life. Knowing that everything was possible to live your life while you have this disease—it was a real shock and also a bit of a relief.
She ordered several tests, including my blood glucose. I knew that something was wrong physically and it was a relief to be able to put our finger on what it was.
Some of the pressure that I feel at times is about keeping face even when I’m feeling high blood sugar or low.
It’s ok to be in that moment and make everyone aware, especially if they feel like something is off about you.
My level had spiraled out of control to over 800—I was immediately rushed to the hospital. How long have you been wearing the Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM), and have you seen a difference since making the switch?
