Mbuthia: After a 10-day stay in hospital I’m free at last!

What you need to know:

  • With any infection, besides Covid-19, your stress hormone levels go up.
  • One of these hormones is cortisol, which, in turn, causes your blood sugars to go up.
  • If you were pre-diabetic, or an undiagnosed diabetic, cortisol will raise your blood sugars even higher.

Free at last, thank God I’m free at last. I received my discharge orders on Tuesday, November 10, from Dr Lillian who told me that I was going to be released to home-based care. It was rather late in the evening but that didn’t matter.
