Hey all. I never had much problems with my diabetes until recently. I got diagnosed type 1 about 7 years ago. I have no insurance so i pay out of pocket. I didnt check my blood sugar for years. I took my lantus in the morning and a 10 shot of novolog/humolog every time i had a full meal. And that was that.
I go to the clinic once a month for free insulin or for my random blood check. I learned after a blood result that my cholesterol was up. So i cut out egg yolks from my morning breakfast (4 eggs). and switched to egg whites. I was told to increase my lantus....which i did. My sugar stabalized more. I didnt need a shot after lunch or what not. I went back to the clinic for another blood test and was told my cholesterol was 3X higher. I couldnt believe it. 1 egg is the daily cholesterol. And i was eating 4. And since switching to egg whites i thought i was good. But my results were worse. And then i started getting panic attacks and feeling like i was going to die all the time...the second i got hungry.
When I never checked my sugar and i felt like a million bucks. But when i started testing and doing everything by the book I started having more problems then ever. Daily i get panic attacks and it seems to happen everytime i get the slightest bit hungry.
Ive never had this problem before when i was trying to save money by not testing the sugar. As a matter of fact. I never carried my meter with me. i didnt need to. Now i wont leave the house with out it. My sugar is always stabalized or dropping and the panic attacks are endless.
Does anyone else have this problem or something similar?
