Ricordo Posted July 26, 2021 Share Posted July 26, 2021 Had to go to ER yesterday. Feeling "zombie". Actually, feeling like that for the last three weeks, ever since the really bad malaise and hot-to-touch sore throat started. No other symptoms. None. The best way that I can describe "feeling zombie" is that you look at things through a haze of distorted time and space. Like a third you is also looking at whatever it is you are looking at. Sort of like the Saving Private Ryan Omaha beach scene. Diagnosis. Hyperglycemia and dehydration. Which turns out to be related. Prescription for now, drink lots and lots of water. As explained by Dr. Cotton (wonderful physician) hydration equals dilution. And age doesn't help either. Glucose at 216 after eating a Chicken Ranch Club sandwich two hours earlier at Shelly's Cafe. Which leads to the A1C thing. It's supposed to be a simple blood test that measures your average blood sugar levels over the past 3 months. The big question that I have is. with one blood test where is that data over the past three months stored? Is there a data bank ingrained in our blood? How exactly does that simple blood test retrieves that 3-month history? Is that some sort of a bio-chemical database? The Dr. believes that I caught the C-thing. And that the test done two weeks ago was a false negative. Go figure. So there you have it. If you are feeling "zombie", you might be hyperglycemic and dehydrated. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
