Blood sugar insomnia

Common Questions and Answers about Blood sugar insomnia


My dr told me to eat before bed to avoid blood sugar dropping and wakong up. Going to try that tonight.
But it is a buzz free drug for me and I normally wouldn't take it at all and will probably not even take any tonight because then I'm just setting myself up for rebound insomnia from it. I've never had any of those herbs work for me re insomnia. I'll just have to wait to heal or until I get so tired I sleep. I'm planning on going for a walk today. The problem is I haven't been eating very much and I worry about expending calories I don't have.
The doctor took a blood test for manonucleosis, nothing else. I'm wondering if she may have low blood sugar? Are regular and severe headaches/insomnia symptoms of this condition?
Went to bed around 10pm Wednesday. Around 2am, checked blood sugar (107 mg/dl). Struggled with new mask. Finally got to sleep (without CPAP) sometime after 3:30am.
Hello, I am a Type I diabetic and have done very well keeping my blood sugar under control. About two weeks ago, however, my blood sugar started going over 200 for no reason. Since I have not changed my diet or schedule, I have begun to question my consumption of Diet Coke. I have been drinking Diet Coke since I was diagnosed with Type I several years ago and it has not appeared to raise my blood sugar, but it is now the only explanation I can find.
If you test your blood sugar when you are awake for a period of time and not eating and it is low than you probably need to have a snack during those times. Being awake 48-72 hours straight is beyond simple insomnia. You might want to be assessed by a mental health professional to see if you perhaps have Bipolar Disorder rather than Major Depression.
You should quit coffee, tea, alcohol, heavy meal which can trigger blood pressure and cardiac load leading to palpitations. Get an ECG after food, blood sugar, thyroid status. Go for physical and mental relaxation exercises regularly. Yes, you need to follow it. I suggest you to consult physician. Take care and regards.
Possible causes that may need to be considered include stress/ anxiety, metabolic issues, hormonal/ endocrine causes, low blood sugar, low blood pressure, connective tissue disorders, a few auto-immune conditions, neurological causes, medication side effect etc. The symptoms described are not specific for MS, though it could be a rare possibility.
Stable blood sugar is super important because swings in blood sugar can mimic anxiety symptoms
went to another endo for second opinion and he wanted to put me on an antidepressent...So they were no help with insomnia at all. Insomnia has gotten to be much better at being hypothroid.. Just figured I would let you know you were not alone in what you are feeling.
I remember when it all started very suddenly with panic attacks which felt like being shaky,nauseous,being poisened or hypoglycemic and a strong need for something to eat immediately, but it turned out that my blood sugar level is always okey in these situations,also my blood pressure except for the fast pulse rate,but after all, eating something makes it better.
Hypotension, benign paroxysmal vertigo, motion sickness, labyrinthitis, migraines, brain tumours,low blood sugar etc.Brain fogging can be due to nutritional and biochemical imbalances affecting the brain and CNS.Depression,anxiety all can lead to these symptoms. Firstly you need to get all investigations done like CT scan brain, thyroid tests and ear examination to rule out all pathological conditions causing these symptoms.
You have taken much precautions and modified your life style. Have you checked your blood sugar levels and also blood pressure. Are you on any medication. Smoking or chewing tobacco can affect saliva production and aggravate dry mouth. Continuously breathing with your mouth open due to nasal obstruction can also contribute to the problem. Pls continue to drink more liquids and have good ventilation. You can visit a neurophysician once. Keep updating. Take care.
Make sure to get your blood sugar checked out, as it's linked to diabetes.
Depression is often associated with insomnia, is your husband depressed? I know my husband was depressed by the fatigue, inability to work and just plain sick of being sick. Zoloft and Paxil are a couple of the meds I've seen people here taking. For joint pain he should be able to take Ibuprophen which is what I've seen recommended by doctors on several HCV related websites.
The rest of the time, he has fed me a million different reasons for his behavior, including medications (blood pressure meds and/or xanax), blood sugar/eating problems, and the latest: insomnia. He stopped taking Xanax months ago, but the symptoms have persisted. I have never noted that he has trouble sleeping, because when he is around me, he's constantly sleeping. He claims this is because he is "comfortable" with me and doesn't sleep otherwise when I'm not around.
hopefully will go away with fiber but the anxiety is killing me.. not sure if it's lack of sleep causing insomnia or anxiety causing insomnia...either way it's not fun. (sorry long one..

I've had insomnia for the past 2 nights (total sleeplessness with increased energy/heat at night and lethargy during day). I'm 33/F and I belive it's due to high cortisol levels (major stress) that have impaired progesterone levels (responsible for sleep), which adversely affected blood sugar metabolization (hyper/hypo-thyrodism?). I get "hot" flash at night after sugar/vitamin/mineral intake (doesn't matter what time of day the consumption) and then insomnia.
~I cannot fall asleep at night unless I take a sleep aid (three months) ~I have to urinate at least once or twice every night (no water at least one hour before bed) ~Little activity makes me really sore (I was sore for 2 days after assembling a BBQ) ~Lack of strength and endurance (I can't even hold the baby without switching arms for 10 minutes) ~I have to use arch supports to walk short distances or I will have sore feet the entire next day, sometimes two days after ~I get d
The following night I started to have insomnia and life became very stressful. Ever since then my blood sugars would be in the 200 hundred range in the morning, then gradually decrease throughout the course of the day, and by the time it would be dinner time they would be around 80. Two hours after every meal my blood sugar will increase ten points, but by the next test it would fall. My doctor has my on a 1/5 insulin carb ratio in the morning and 1/8 at dinner and lunch.
I would lay down, the nurse would take my blood pressure it would be normal. I stood up and my blood pressure dropped dangerously low, about 30 points less which caused me to pass out or become very dizzy in less than a minute. Not sure if yours is like that but I would say Lyme does have an effect on BP because of all the people I know that have that. In my non medical opinion.
At first I thought they were low blood sugar spells. My endo gave me a glucose meter to test and that was not the case. I bought a blood pressure monitor and sure enought my blood pressure has been spiking. Last night I went to the ER and was all was well until I started dozing off to sleep, blood pressure went up and up. They gave me Adavan and watched me sleep. That did the trick and leveled out my blood pressure. The Dr.

I made some changes to my diet, started walking almost every day, made sure that I was drinking water more frequently and upon a friend's suggestion stopped taking the pill for diabetes. In the subsequent two blood test over a period of six months, my sugar levels were normal. During my next visit, I confessed to the doctor I stopped taking the diabetes pill. The doctor was not overly surprised and was happy that my sugar levels were under control.
I have had my thyroid tested before, about 10 years ago, at the request of my doctor after I complained of neck pain which no amount of physical therapy could alleviate. The blood results are long gone, but the ultrasound showed two 4-5mm hypoechoic nodules on the thyroid isthmus and recommended regular follow-up which I never did due to loss of health insurance. My doctor at the time never said anything about hypothyroid, though looking back I am certain the symptoms were there.
I've been tested for diabetes-only abnormality is very mild insulin resistance, for which I take Metformin (500 mg. w/ breakfast; 250mg. with lunch).
