I have had type 2 for three years. I take oral medications for blood pressure, hypertension, cholesterol, etc. For the past few weeks, I have been checking my blood and it has never been under 15 mmol/L [270 mg/dl]. Recently, it has been in the 20s mmol/L [over 360 mg/dl] and I still feel okay. I was not feeling extra tired or anything. I'm drinking a lot more than ever did, but I'm not passing much urine during the day. At night, I sweat like crazy and I could visit the toilet about 10 or 11 times. I get several hot flushes on and off during the day which I find very embarrassing and uncomfortable when it does happen. Should I contact my doctor and get his opinion?
Yes, you need to see your diabetes care provider. Your symptoms are consistent with hyperglycemia experienced in the short-term. These symptoms are likely to improve significantly with improved blood sugar control. You need to see your diabetes care provider to determine what the next best step is for you.
