Clarification about my Hospitalization

To be fair I had an ABNORMAL reaction to something usually quite harmless. All steroids will raise blood sugars, even in non diabetic people, just rarely to the extremes that I jumped to while I was asleep. They're going to run tests to see if I also have any underlying non-diagnosed issues that could have contributed. It wasn't my PCP doing something irregular or dangerous, this was a standard, fairly common 1 week course of anti-inflammatory prednisone cortisteroids she prescribed, that probably 95% of PCP's would prescribe to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis and reduce the swelling joints. Hell it's so common it was one of those $4 prescriptions.

Type II diabetics also rarely if EVER develop Diabetic Ketoacidosis. It's almost exclusively a type I diabetic problem. So that is the real cause for concern, my body did a WTF moment for everyone.

I am however feeling much better this morning (Even if I can't sleep with a roommate who moans and whimpers and snores 24/7 awake or asleep.) And my blood sugar is back in normal ranges, 120 just a little while ago.

so I should stop spewing ketones everywhere now, which is a good thing so I can start getting rid of the toxins in my body now.

So when are we getting sweet kitties their papers to go around with you everywhere as living sugar meters? ^_^

I wish. Needy is rather passive aggressive with a leash. She'd go for a DRAG and Cookie is a SPAZ. I'll just continue to let them sleep with me and I'll spoil them rotten.

Ahh, all right--I do remember my mom's going up a bit when they tried out steroids for her rheumatoid arthritis (but, since hers was on the *low* end, it brought it up to *regular* levels...it's amazing the range of things that can show up in one family tree)--I hope they find out what made them act so wonky for you, and I rescind the doctor-smacking.^^
(I think cats and small dogs do better on harnesses? also, you can get pink ones. *cough*)

I tried Needy in a pink Harness... it was still a drag
