Not a good idea to me, she is already about 25 pounds overweight, and I was really hoping he would try a little harder to figure out why its happening, and maybe even try a medicine or natural supplement that could help. When her sugar goes below 115 she has severe symptoms of low blood sugar, dizziness,confusion,anxiety sweating etc.. She has tourettes and Bi-polar and seizure disorders and is on tenix, paxil and tegritol for them but the doctor says these are not the problem.
told me to watch my blood sugar because im having symptoms of hypo. I notice my blood sugar at night between 2-3 am are over 120 and my fasting blood sugar in the morning is over 100. When i get the fealing of low it is around 80 and it will keep dropping. the last time it went to 67 and i had to eat some thing i couldnt wait. i had a cup of oj and checked in 15 min and it went to 137.
To follow up some, I got one of those blood sugar monitors (they're nice and cheap here), and the numbers still look good to me: 78 fasting, 93 one hour after a (relatively carb-heavy) meal. Still think it's worthwhile to bother the doctor about A1C? The thyroid test results were: T3: 119.6 (range 80-200); T4: 7.0 (range 5.1-14.1); TSH: 1.8 (range .3-4.2). I don't know how to interpret that, but to my untrained eye, that doesn't look like the bottom or top of the range.
Everyone with diabetes and hypoglycemia has different levels for their highs and lows mine are anything below 106 is great, 104 is lowest I can function on, anything lower then that and I feel sick, 99 and below are hypoglycemic for me.
Pre-pregnancy I had a history of high insulin levels in random blood tests as well as symptoms that corrolated to excess carb intake (dizziness, "foggy" brain, shaking, blacking out when going too long without food, etc), but when I was referred by my PCP to an endocrinologist he laughed and said there was no way someone with my body type was hypoglycemic (which he said was a myth aside from pre-diabetes), and so I must be imagining the symptoms. Fast-forward to pregnancy.
i had low blood sugar issues a few months ago. right after i ate i would feel like it dropped and have hunger pains. i was so upset over it and kept eating almonds. right now its gone but it will probably be back since this is a strange ride of symptoms.
I was all worked up about something, but at the same time I didn't eat breakfast and still hadn't eaten lunch. I'm positive that lots of my anxiety and especially panic attacks come from blood sugar issues in me. There is a good book on Hypoglycemia and I can't remember the name, but the lady who wrote talks about how she was having electro shock therapy back in the 60's before anyone knew about this because she was having anxiety, depression, etc.
My sugar returned to normal after the the steroid treatments ended and I haven't had any issues with high blood sugar since. I would have to agree with Lu here on this one and say you really should contact your doctor about your new consistently numbers. They could be due to Copaxone, but it may actually be that you may need one of your T2 meds adjusted or changed.
I know everyone is different, and it makes sense that their are blood sugar issues with the liver being the general of the hormones and pancreas. Also, it seems on my hormonal days on the first of the month, that my hypoglycemia gets even worse, so it seems to be tied in with menopausal issues with me as well.
a couple of posts below FLGUY asked for more to talk about blood sugar issues...i have not had any tx yet..i do feel like sh-- alot of the time...maybe 50 to 65 percent of the time...the pains are no big deal its the light head feeling and not knowing if i'm going to pass out or not is what really gets to me...i'm starting to think my hep c virus has screewed up other things...today i was feeling bad...then at 4 pm i ate a grape fruit and felt much better...
It is fast acting insulin, meant to counter food. Rapidly swinging blood sugar - high or low - can have similar symptoms. Should you reduce your humalog? No. Your blood sugars are still too high. Don't take 1 event as evidence you can't lower your sugar. You can and must if you want to avoid a horrible host of diabetic complications. Slow and steady. Please study the book.
What you are describing is definitely a common symptom of SSRI withdrawal but that doesn't necessarily mean that is what is causing your symptoms in your case. You should get a physical examination to rule out a medical cause for your symptoms in case they are not related to Paxil withdrawal. Do you have any reasons to suspect you may be hypoglycemic? Do your symptoms get better with sugar intake, etc?
To spare space, I won't list them all again and just let the link do the explaining. As I said in that post, my doctor started me on checking my blood sugar when I'm having episodes of feeling particularly ill. There have been a few instances where I've checked and my sugar has indeed dropped to around the 50-60 range, with one time in particular catching it under 20 (felt particularly horrible during that instance). These readings have only occurred sporadically throughout the day.
I really believe this is all being caused by fluctuating hormones, since my symptoms of lightheadedness and low blood sugar occur before my period and a little during. I am also working on my diet, no sugar and adding a lot of vegetables and juicing. It's been helping me with less low sugar symptoms. May try adding progesterone cream( Pro-gest) only after checking with my OBGYN to see if my levels need it. Take care and hope you start feeling better.
After I do one set of 10 repetition squats for example my mouth dries out, not matter how much water I drank that day. Is that a sign of a low blood sugar? My mouth gets dry after other exercises too. Also, I turn pale and feel a bit dizzy. Why does my mouth keeps getting dry?
Hi all. I have been type 2 for about 14 years. My blood sugar for the past several weeks has been very much to my liking! I removed some uneeded stress from my life and it helped. I am averaging over the past week about 135. No, not perfect but so much better! I do have one thing that is bothering me. I would say for the past week I have been urinating an average of once an hour. It's not like a uti either. It doesn't burn, the color is nice and pale.
your blood sugar, sodium levels, and blood pressure all look like adrenal symptoms---but according to the range of your test, your adrenal levels look normal. have you ever had your ACTH levels checked or had an ACTH stimulation test done? i wonder if your your low blood sugar could be connected to your celiac---are you pretty strict about your diet? if not, you could have intestinal damage---even without symptoms----and you might not be absorbing enough nutrients.
I have been hearing conflicting things about what is normal. What is a normal blood sugar reading for a non diabetic and NOT fasting? (My Dr. said that I have pre-diabetes) A few hours after eating my ranges are from 140-150. I have heard that anything over 100 is bad, but another place said that anything over 200 in the middle of the day is bad. Which is it?
I think it is impossible for 2 cups of white coffee without sugar can raise the blood sugar so much! Just too scare to do another blood glucose test. Any one has those experience or come across those symptoms? Could some one give me an idea what should I do next?
I feel hes missing out on kid things and parties at school because of the reaction of the sugar. Is there a way to test if sugar or fructose is the problem with his tummy issues.
You do have to watch stuff like pasta, breads and rice. How low was your blood sugar today? Did you feel ill- shaky, sweaty, pale? To combat that try eating several small meals a day with snacks in between. If you need help ask to meet with a nutritionist. They can help you understand your restrictions and also help meal plan.
Have settled down a bit but really foggy, dizzy, chest tight, feel like I can't breathe. Day 4 of cycle. Head pressure, zaps, feeling faint. Still having blood sugar issues. Felt pretty good last night in the pm after eating. Feel weak today, heart palps. Went to church today which has always been hard. Had major dizziness, felt like fainting during church, hard to stand and kneel but I stayed through it and it went away once I left the church.
Benign Breast Fibroanenomas along with the autonomic issues. One of her main complaints other than the direct blood pressure issues always seem to involve pain in the back of the neck. She has had MRI & MRA of the neck which showed no issues there. But since others also state a neck issue, is there something with the neck that is adding to autonomic problems? Concerning unexplained fevers: She had 102.4 over the w/e.
I was feel sick... like I ate too much sugar. Used my daughters meter and my blood sugar was 47. Ate some sugar and could not get it up past 70. Not familiar with the numbers, what is too low? Called PCP and was told just drink OJ. No concern? Should this be something serious? Happened twice.
I get similar symptoms at times when glucose levels are either too low or rapidly dropping. My heart has been checked out to be normal. My endocrinologist has told me that some people will have spasms that cause this sensation in the chest when glucose levels are low. Of course, we then don't know when it happens if we are having a serious heart problem or whether it is just spasms. So keep some juice or glucose tablets handy so you can remedy the situation quickly!
to every diabetic, or anyone with blood sugar issues. Available on Hulu for free, or Netflix instant streaming. It's changing my life, helping me to control blood sugars. Also, see the books by scientific investigator Gary Taubes, and his blog.
My endo doc ran a 6 hour glucose tolerance test on me when I first found out about having a goiter. I think it can have something to do with the levels...the thyroid controls so much in your body anyway...I had a TT on 2/14 and have leveled off now, so I'm waititng to see if my hypoglycemia will go away...
Normally blood sugar levels rise after eating. What causes my blood sugar levels to drop after I eat? Even if I eat candy or other sugar sweets this happens. I experience a drop of sometimes 30-40 points. Could this be a pancreas issue or could this be related to the bowel resectioning I had two years ago? I take no medication for diabetes. I was only told by my gp to monitor blood sugar levels after a fasting blood sugar test was over 130. My A1C level is 4.6.
