I went to a Walmart Clinic yesterday to see about what I thought was a UTI, with possible kidney stones. They took a urine sample, said no infection, but my sugar was really high, that my body was doing a major sugar dump.
They then took a A1c. I said I had eaten less than two hours before, was told it didn't matter. I've always had to fast for them before.
They gave me meds for the back pain, plus anti nausea meds, as the pain was making me sick. They also gave me antibiotic as, while no infection showed in sample, one usually follows stones due to irritation.
Today they called with the results. The nurse said that for some reason the blood was never sent in, but they showed a sugar count of 416 and I needed to get to a doctor immediately, as that was high enough to cause a coma. I have an apt for 2pm.
I took a sugar reading here, a little while ago, three hours after breakfast, and got 220.
I'm not sure if their 416 was accurate, but I am going to go in.
The meds they gave me literally knock me out. I sleep for hours after I take them. the back pain is still very intense, doesn't seem to be helping. Need to go, time to see docs.
