Vitamin D deficient. High Cholesterol inherited. But while on statin drug I had a pseudo-heart attack, and became weakened and then paralyzed in lower extremities. Later found out father had same severe reaction to statin drugs. My cholesterol is still too high in using just Fish Oil 3-6-9, but don't want to try another statin :( because of side effects. In the meantime doc switched me from Metformin alone to glipizide w Metformin. I got my first ever hypOglycemic reading in the 70's and 90's. So now know what that feels like. But BS won't regulate. Latest problem of 2 weeks with severe bronchitis treated with z-pack, then prednisolone. (2 more days on pred) and my BS readings are staying in the 200s to near 400! I've increased the dosage by one pill while taking prednisone. Fasting bs did get down to 146, but that's the lowest. Now FIGHTING TO GET AWAKE AND STAY AWAKE. I'm shaky weak, and so weak that and feel like I am falling. Sleep attacks...hours go by...I'm scared I won't wake up, but can't stay awake.
Blood test showed I'm Vitamin D deficient even tho I already was taking 2000 units: doc said to add 6000 more. I have chronic fatigue syndrome and Foreign Accent Syndrome. I am 5'9" 205# which classifies as obese. High Cholesterol inherited. But while on statin drug I had a pseudo-heart attack, and became weakened and then paralyzed in lower extremities. Later found out father had same severe reaction to statin drugs. My cholesterol is still too high in using just Fish Oil 3-6-9, but don't want to try another statin :( because of side effects.

I've increased the dosage by one pill while taking prednisone. Fasting bs did get down to 146, but that's the lowest. Now FIGHTING TO GET AWAKE AND STAY AWAKE. I have to really focus to even move a little bit. Problems understanding words. Can't read. Eyes cross too easy... So tired. Very weak. Wall walk to bathroom. On toilet can't remember if I've peed or not. Sleep attacks...hours go by...I'm scared I won't wake up, but can't stay awake.
I developed bronchitis over the course of a week so severe that non-stop coughing for 3 days. Tightness in chest and breathing improved with albuterol and prednisone, but not blood sugars routinely in the upper 2 and 3 hundreds. I did start taking a 4th daily glipiside since am taking prednisone. Now, comatose for hours!!
When I do get awake, severe effort to even move a little. which way is up? On the toilet; did I pee tet or not?EXHAUSTED!! Inside-out weak!

- By Curious: When is the best time of day to take a baby aspirin for a male or female over 65?
I have read that the best time of day to take a Baby Aspirin to prevent a heart attack or stroke is at night. However, not all the studies agree that the time of day matters. According to your own physician, what time of day is considered the best to receive the optimum benefits?
