What is your age as of now?

Have you been treated for your diabetes/or is it controlled.

Loss of weight and Smell is due ketoacidosis and your Blood Sugar Level being high .You need to recheck your HBA1C/Fasting Blood sugar to continue with titrating treatment with insulin asap.

Meanwhile you have to avoid DKA. contact your doctor for full care on diabetes.
