I have always had some trouble with my bad cholesterol being off the charts and I have been off the meds for the last year or so plus gaining about 50 pounds.

    As for the gun, my wife is comfortable enough with it to clear it and secure it and I would rather her have it that anyone else. I was just wondering what you fine people would think. I don’t post here often but I read almost everything posted.

    Once more, thanks to all and a very Merry Christmas to everyone!

    You may want to get to a doctor for a physical quicker than the New Year. You make have blood glucose issues since you have gained weight quickly. Just my long distance $0.02.

    Looking on the bright side there could be nothing major at all wrong with you.
    Could be an isolated incident - or just related to low blood pressure.
    You should get it checked out though.

    Phone calls are cheap...call your doctor...if it's your usual doctor, he/she should be willing to speak directly with you...this could also get you 'squeezed' in a little quicker...don't wait...

    My wife and I had a similar question about only one of us having a permit...it made sense to her, and along with other reasons, she quickly got her permit.

    I would not worry about your legal weapon if something happens, let the medics and police handle it...I would not give it to your wife to hold.

    Stay armed...stay healthy...stay safe!

    I'd inform the 911 folks that the person down has a CCW and is carrying, so they can pass that to L.E. If I didn't make the call, I'd inform the responding people.

    Just as an update...

    I went to the Doctor yesterday and he said my blood sugar is slightly elevated (363, he said it should be 100) so he said that means type 2 diabetes. To me it sounded like a death sentence, he had the nerve to take away my Mtn Dew! Not to mention all the good Christmas goodies that are still setting around calling out to me.

    I want to thank each of you that stressed going to get checked out, I would have most likely put it off had it not been for you.

    Yes, the diagosis sounds like a death sentence. That's how I reacted when I heard it.

    Understand that even though there is no cure, it is treatable. And YOU have to take charge of your treatment. So first, do what the docter has told you. Diet, exercise, medication - whatever. Get a glucometer, I recommend the Accu-Check Active mainly because the test strips are the most affordable that I could find.

    Giving up sugary sodas wasn't so hard when I found out how tasty Crystal Lite is, and it's cheaper too. For my morning push, Monster Lo-Carb is amazing. Splenda is my artificial sweetner of choice, it tastes just like sugar to me.

    Oh by the way, 363 isn't "a little high." 145 is a little high. 363 is Oh-My-God high.

    Good work seeing the doctor. Lots of guys would keep putting it off. Your life has changed, but not for the worse. Not doing anything about it would be for the worse.

    Hopefully some other type-2's will chime in. You are not alone, a forum this size should have plenty.

    Glad to hear it was not something worse.


    As far as the weapon when and if I am incapacitated it would be my wifes last concern, but if I was conscious I would tell her to take the gun license or no license.

    Glad to hear that your only a diabetic and not having major heart problems. My condolences on the loss of the mountain dew. FYI, from what little I've learned from you, it sounds like your dizzi episode was likely caused by momentary low blood pressure, caused by dehydration. Without boring you with terms like "non-ketotic hyperosmolarity," I'll just say that you need to stay well hydrated. It'll help with those light-headed moments.

    You expect a diabetic to take advice from a cupcake?

    Oh. That's a member name. Nevermind.

    And I wonder what the osmolality of his hyperomolarity was? (old Bio major - sorry!)

    EXERCISE and diet may help turn that around my friend..unless you enjoy being on medication. I turned mine around, and know many who have. Does not work for everyone, but, for sure won't hurt.. The number one killer of men is procrastination...Luck.

    Your doc can refer you to diabetic education, usually one of the hospitals will have it and insurance usually pays for it. It's normally done one on one or occasionally a class with a RN followed by a private session giving you all the scoop about eating, exercise and monitoring your blood sugar. The one I went to even gave me a glucose meter free.

    Worth checking in to, it really helped me.

    Good to hear that you made it to see the Doc. My Dad had Type II diabetes and he turned it around with diet and exercise. You'll have to watch the sugar, white flour, white rice, potatoes, and other empty carbs. You need to take care of yourself so your guns won't get lonely!!!

    You should get checked out. Not to make a joke out of it but some of the people in my Walmart will make you get dizzy standing next to them.

    Agreed with Cupcake on all points.

    She being your wife has no regard in regard to law and lawfullness.
    Advise her to get a move on with getting that permit _and_ you should do same toward a doctor visit and full detail inspection.
    Fainting spells and lightheadedness is an indicator of low blood pressure and low blood pressure is an indicator of...a problem.
