Question: Ever since Friday of last week my blood sugar level has been above 300. I am 17 and I've been well controlled for the past few years. I'm rarely ever high unless it's a special occasion such as my birthday. I've been a diabetic, type one, since i was four years old. I am on the lantus solarstar pen 28 units before bed and on the novopen for one unit per every 8 carbs plus corrections if needed (rarely). I'm kindof afraid to mention this to my parents right now, for my bad diabetes control in my early teen years. Only way my insulin works is if i take five times the amount i would normaly take. My question is what can i do? Did my body stop reacting to insulin? I tried a new pen of each, same results, and the pens are not expired. Anyone else go through this? Any way to help lower it better? Could a possible pregnancy be the reason?? My period is due soon and i have had unprotected sex, and I know, don't yell at me, it was wrong and i risked a lot by doing that, and I'm sorry. Could that stress play a part in it?

A. You have type 1 diabetes - the way you take insulin does not change that. B. You cannot become suddenly resistant to insulin. C. Do not exercise if your blood sugar is out of control. D. Your first inclination is the strongest possibility - get a pregnancy test immediately. E.No matter how hard it will be to tell your parents - you must do so immediately, no matter what the cause. You are in danger of diabetic keto-acidosis. They will be understandably upset but only because they are concerned for your well being. E. Stress, hormones and many other things can cause your blood sugars to spike. If you are not pregnant, get checked for celiac disease. My diabetic son has celiac and once he went gluten free, we were able to control his blood sugar more effectively.

I suggest you read the article “Various Causes of Hypertension”and "Hypertension treatment and prevent”,just from:http://hypertensionblog.info/various-causes-of-hypertension.html and http://hypertensionblog.info/hypertension-treatment-and-prevent.html Both alcohol and cocaine cause hypertension. Excessive ingestion of alcohol can cause a patient to exacerbate his preexisting hypertension, or it can induce hypertension. And cocaine produces devastating effects on blood pressure by increasing the release of norepinephrine, a powerful vasopressor produced by the body in response to hypotension and stress. This can result in acute hypertension, tachycardia, tremor, and seizures as well as coronary artery vasoconstriction from a CVA or Ml. Poisons Many poisons can elevate blood pressure and cause hypertension. Some common poisons include cyanide, phencyclidine, and black widow spider venom. Treatment varies depending on the poison, and it usually relieves the poison-induced hypertension. Pregnancy Pregnancy-induced hypertension can threaten the lives of both the mother and infant. It causes elevated blood pressure, proteinuria, and edema and may lead to abnormalities in the mother’s coagulation system and liver function. The only treatment for pregnancy-induced hypertension is delivery of the infant. Stress For some patients, even mild stress can cause a rise in blood pressure. In response to a stressful event, the patient perceives a stressor, and his body initiates a fight-or-flight reaction. Physical signs and symptoms of stress-induced hypertension include decreased gastrointestinal motility, pupil dilation, and increased perspiration, all of which result from sympathetic nervous system stimulation that causes increased blood pressure and increased heart and respiratory rates. With the white-coat phenomenon, a patient has elevated blood pressure readings in his physician’s office or the hospital but normal readings elsewhere. To determine if a patient has true hypertension, a physician may order repeated measurements over time or ambulatory measurements. In postoperative patients, stress-related hypertension commonly results from sympathetic stimulation caused by pain, bladder distention, hypothermia, or respiratory compromise. Sleep Apnea Sleep apnea can contribute to the development of hypertension. During apnea, the tongue and soft palate relax and fall back, obstructing the airway either partially or completely. As a result, the patient can’t breathe. His oxygen levels fall, and carbon dioxide levels rise, resulting in acidosis and vasoconstriction of the pulmonary arterioles. Eventually, the patient partially awakens, gasps, and reopens his airway. Episodes of apnea may last from 15 to 90 seconds and occur repeatedly during the night. Diseases Causing Vasculitis Scleroderma, polyarteritis nodosa, lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, and nonspecific arthritis may cause vasculitis in some patients. About one-half of these patients subsequently develop hypertension because of the effect the diseases have on the arterioles and major arteries

I am writing to tell you what an incredible impact these methods had on my life! I have had type 2 diabetes for 27 years. For me, the worst part of this horrible disease is the severe pain I constantly get in my feet. The pain is so bad that I avoid standing and walking as much as possible. I've got to tell you that within the first month, my feet stopped hurting altogether and I can now walk totally pain free. Believe it or not, I even danced at my niece's wedding last month, something I have not done in a many years. I've been following the book for six months now and my blood sugar is well within normal range. I feel great! I recommend you use the Type 2 Diabetes Destroyer to naturally reverse your diabetes.

Have you tested for ketones? The amount of insulin you take changes with time, so what used to work may not be appropriate now. Being like two weeks preg I don't think would make a huge difference in your blood sugars. Test for ketones, and take a pregnancy test while you're at it. If you have ketones, you need to call your endocrinologist.

Also, insulin resistance is not something that happens overnight and can develop over time. Have you put on much weight? Obesity and a sedentary lifestyle contribute to insulin resistance. I agree, tell your parents. They will likely be more concerned than upset. Go see a doc and ask them about it. Stress, infections (sickness), and other factors do affect BG levels.

Most definitely anxiety can cause high blood pressure and I believe you. Doctors are always ready to throw pills at you if your overweight You can test it by taking a natural supplement an hour before you go to the doctor next time. or go to a reliable pharmacy they have either a newer machine or have had it checked recently just ask at the window if the machine is accurate. then check your blood pressure you can take 1 Valerian capsule about a half hour before you go to check or if you don't have grass allergies of hay fever you can sip 1 cup of 1/2 peppermint 1/2 chamomile tea with honey on your way to the doctor or a half hour before I recommend warm it is more relaxing and soothing. please let me know what happens.
