I'm posting for my husband because he is unable to get a diagnosis. For the last year he has been experiencing odd reactions to sugar. If he eats anything high in sugar, in about 15 minutes or less he is totally looped. It's like he's drunk. He also has this severe acetone breath that is so bad it fills the room. The other symptom when this occurs is that he will urinate huge amounts, and his eyes pupils seem to be dialated. I am afraid of what will happen if he isn't diagnosed soon because when this occurs, his mental state is not stable. And often if he has not eaten anything he is also a little "off."
Of course the first thought was diabetes. He has had two FBS and they come out normal. They have not done a glucose tolerance, however. I checked his urine for ketones myself--nothing. It has totally disrupted our lives and I'm concerned for his safety while he's at work. They are telling me it is not diabetes, but are not willing to keep looking at what it may be. He has checked himself into the VA a couple of times and they actually did a blood alcohol because they thought he had been drinking. He has been through prostate cancer, which was contained and he is now free of that. He also has CLL due to agent orange, which is also stable and is not receiving treatments for. They have done all the basic blood work and it all comes out normal.
If anyone has any insight at all, or which direction we might take, I surely appreciate it!!
