Yes, fatty liver from a blood test, but he wants me to have an ultrasound as well to be sure. Don't take what I say as gospel- I'm not a doctor and there is plenty of misinformation on the internet. Fruthermore I've only just got this and I'm still learning. Let me try and describe the whole afternoon nap thing better. I'd sleep quite a bit, and things like get up in the morning, eat breakfast then practically be asleep on the train to work and on the train home. It seems as if when there was nothing for me to focus my attention on, I'd just start feeling like sleeping. Anytime I found myself sitting passively (TV for instance) I'd soon feel like sleeping. Everyone is different. One of the ladies at work said that when her blood sugar is high (she's a type 1) she starts to get cranky and will snap at people over stupid little things that wouldn't normally bother her. Diabetes definitely affects your circulation. Best defense is to keep moving, the more you move the better your blood circulation etc. I'm guessing that after I've had it 20 years or so then I will likely have some of these problems, but because I don't drink or smoke I'm well ahead of many people who get this problem. In my case an "attack" meant the first thing I really noticed was drinking a lot. I had recently cut out all soft drink though so I thought it was just my body going "oi- need more of that liquid sugar matey". I knew it was one of the signs of diabetes but the penny hadn't dropped yet. Then about 1-2 weeks later - my birthday, I had a fair bit of sugary stuff and noticed that evening that my long distance vision was terrible. Couldn't read foot high letters beyond about 10m distance. The next day I went to the doctor and got some tests, then went to work, felt very tired, like trying to do things from down a long dark tunnel or stuck in quicksand. The morning he finally gave me medication I was bone tired. I had my tablet at about 11am I guess. At 12 noon I slept until about 3pm- by then I was feeling much better. By 5pm I was almost manic, I'm guessing because it had been so long since my cells any real energy. I remember feeling that way a long time ago- so excited that your muscles tingle, almost ache with the need to do something. The doctor called diabetes "drowning in the desert" or something like that, because you are literally swimming with energy (glucose) but your cells can't use any of it. You need to get within a particular range of blood sugar for everything to work properly and there are several things you can do to improve your cells insulin sensitivity. Eventually I may not need medication at all, which for the moment is the main goal. I don't want to be going back to the health system- there are plenty of people with more deserving problems than mine.
