Hi Everyone. I am writing this because I am so frustrated with this diagnosis. Years ago I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic and just recently, due to extremely poor diet, I was diagnosed as diabetic. I ended up at my dr's office because I had all the symptoms. This was a slow spiral of weekends out eating terrible food, smoking and LOTS of soda, which I never drink. I was going to my cousin's house and because I wasn't drinking alcohol - I was the DD - I was drinking soda since caffeine has the same effect on me anyway.
So anyway, I was feeling run down after a few weeks of this and my dr had me get my blood drawn and my A1C was through the roof. I was upset with the diagnosis, but I took the medicine. My issue here is that he has me on Enalapril and I am suffering terrible headaches. I don't have high blood pressure, I have perfect cholestoral, I just happen to have a weakness for sugar and carbs.
Does anyone else have an issue with terrible headaches? This is not related to the sugar because I went two weeks without the Enalapril and the headaches went away within 2 days. When I went back on it they came back just as fast. My dr insists that the med is just to protect my kidneys, but what's the point of taking medicine when your whole day is torture.
