What Do I Do?

Recommended Posts

aconfusedtype1diabetic

Hi! I am a young adult who got diagnosed with panhypopituitarism when I was born. Later on September 6 of 2016, I got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. They told us I got diabetes because of my panhypopituitarism which both can be fatal if untreated very fast. VERY fatal. Over the past year or two, I have had episodes where I shake not normally the way I shake when I'm anxious. It's a full-body shake. My doctors say if my blood sugar is a good number we don't need to treat my panhypopituitarism but when my entire body is shaking I don't want to risk it because it can be very very FATAL if untreated. I have recently moved into my own apartment again with staff but they have to follow doctor's orders. I don't want them to get in trouble but I'm positive these past two episodes have been my Cortsol. They don't listen to me and I am not likely to change doctors anytime soon. I don't know what to do!

Hi . I cant offer any advice other then  go back to your doctor .

It must be an awful experience & quite scary.

Do you get any warnings its about to happen so you can check your blood glucose?

What is your usual blood glucose & your A1c?

Couldnt stressed enough what @Adiantum said. Consulting a trusted doctor would really help. Learn what you are going through and ask for guidance from other doctors too. And always check on your glucose.
