Anyone experience high glucose levels after surgery?

Last week I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and am taking 4 shots of insulin and 2 pill everyday. Just wanted to see if there was a connection between the aneurysm and high blood sugar. I know that diabetes can affect the brain as far as seritonin (sp?) levels and can lead to depression. Please let me know if any of you have diabetes and how it is or isn’t related to your aneursym(s).

hi robyn,
i had my anny back in oct 09 and was given insulin shots in the stomach in the hospital while recovering…i am currently on a diet to avoid having to continue with the injections and seems to be able to keep my blood usgar within a reasonable level that the drs dont insist on meds or injections/./.its funny because i was never diagnosed with diabetes prior to the anny but my father had diabetes…so im not sure if its genetic or due to my anny throwing my brain for a loop…lol…literally…lol…you might look at your diet and carb intake…fresh veggies and red meat was whatthey suggested to keep my blood sugar down…and it wouldnt hurt if i lost a couple of lbs,im 5’4" and 170 so go figure,haha…maybe when i lose the weight my diabetes will cease to exsist…
if youd like maybe we can go on a diet together and compare what foods work to help lose the buldge and excercise regimens,let me know if your interested…i know were miles apart…but we could still do the buddy system for support …let me know…michelle-n-texas

Hi Michelle,

Thank you for responding. I would love to lose about 40lbs. I need a buddy desparately…and it helps with accountability too if you have someone doing it with you. Thank you so much for the offer. I actually started on my new eating habits on 6/12. I am keeping a food journal along with my glucose numbers. I am eating whole grains, lots of fish, fruit and vegtables…I am still so tired and fatigued I haven’t begun any excercise regimen yet. Trying to get my numbers into a normal range so that I can get some of my energy back. I go to the Dr. on Monday and am hoping he can help with that. As soon as I get the go ahead I hope to begin at least walking in the eves. I take 4 shots in the stomach every day and 2 pills a day and still in the upper 300s low 400s. I still have a little ways to go…thank you so much for your support and ecouragement. Have a wonderful day. :slight_smile:

My dads blood sugars were astronomical! He was a Type 2 diabetic They had him on an insulin drip more than a few times and he was on tube feedings. He had been a diabetic for about 2 years before his annie, and was somewhat non-compliant with it
then. Because of that, it was harder to control once he got sick. He was also on very high doses of steroids for long periods of time and that causes high blood sugars as well.
