Monday, I finally went to the dr.  I had been experiencing some uncomfortable medical problems...They stuck my finger and did a quick sugar blood test...they said that the meter went to 750 and my sugar level was over just said hi...I guess it was greeting me..The dr. said he could not understand why I was not already in a coma...Not funny..They did a a1c test that showed 1400.  the lab said my blood sugar was 515.  I was drinking myself to death and could not quinch my thirst.  I came home with a new meter and began to test myself twice a day.  I talked to my wife and made a promise that I would deal with this so that we could spend the a long time together.  I have been very faithful..I'm having problems getting enough calories and I need to know what is an appropriate amount of carbs and sugar to shoot for each day.  I have an appointment with a dietician later.  I will meet with my dr. on Tuesday.  I had lost around 30 lbs..but was still at 347...I alerted my fb friends and asked them to pray for me...on the fifth day my fasting blood sugar was 127...I am taking 2000 metaforim...a day.
