My blood sugar keeps going up

Common Questions and Answers about My blood sugar keeps going up


Avatar f tn Hypoglycemia/ low blood sugar would be considered blood sugar levels less than about 70. Your result of 103 is normal, not hypoglycemia. It is likely that your symptoms may be from other causes. Sometimes headaches can be a sign of not drinking enough - so a glass of water and a few minutes to relax / be quiet - may help a lot. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I figured I'd work my butt off to get down to it, but then I took a health risk assessment with my healthcare provider just to see where my standings were now and found out that all of my levels are within ideal range, even my weight! (And blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterols and triglycerides are all perfect!) Here I'd been looking at my BMI which has been saying that I'm still overweight so I've been stressing myself out wondering how to get down more.
Avatar f tn I have not been diagnosed but a few months and my doctor has not told me much of nothing. My sugar keeps going up and down, my doctor won't put me on medicine(the highest its been is 400+, the lowest 60) Thanks for your help!!!
Avatar n tn All the insulin that's being produced because of all this sugary food/drink is shuttling all that blood glucose that's not being used for energy, right into the fat cells, and voila her blood sugar is dropping, so she gobbles some more sugar to bring her glucose level back up again, only her blood sugar probably isn't dropping as low as she thinks it is (has she actually checked it with a glucometer?)... It's a vicious cycle and once you get into it, it's hard to get out of it.
7543158 tn?1391981669 Eating even just a handful of almonds now (my go to snack when my sugar gets low) will spike my sugar to almost 200 and I work all day to get it back down to an acceptable level. When it finally goes down it ends up crashing into the 40s and 50s, sometimes causing me to pass out as it's so sudden when it does. I've never had this problem before and it's freaking me out a little bit because I have no one to help me while my husband is at work.

Can any help on the topic .I have to see my Doc on Monday .

Avatar n tn I know lots of people who have been brainwashed that they cannot eat fat, and they end up eating ultra high protein. But, their blood sugar is a huge problem, going high and low, and they hit the wall during parts of the day where they need to drink tons of coffee to stay awake and they get raging hunger. In fact, I used to be brainwashed about the fat phobia too. When I took the leap and tested LCHF way of eating, I was remarkably impressed with the results.
Avatar n tn If I take 23 unit of levimir, I awoke at 4 am and see sugar is 8, but blood pressure up, the if I seat or get up, I get 9 to 9.5, sugar increases. Probably I cannot go to 5 and 6 as fasting sugar, I have adrenal weakness, I may not tolerate that. I am 65 years old Please explain two terms you mentioned: a. Fasting BG b. 6 hours of no food. Yesterday night, I brought to 7 by walking, I woke up at 4pm, sugar was 9, pressure did not increase. I gave only 18 units of levimir.
Avatar m tn While leo is the one who protects her. I want her to be like leo. When my daughter cries leo comes to lick me to wake me up and sara just growls or barks. Please help.
Avatar m tn You may want to see a regular doctor to get a full blood panel done to see if there are any problems going on. Like Jerry said, sugar and caffeine themselves may be part of the problem and quitting smoking would be in your best interests. I smoked for 25 years and the doctor said it was the best thing I could have done for my heart. It's good you are being seen by a cardiologist but until then or if it happens again try drinking lots of water and see if it helps it slow down.
Avatar n tn Since the beginning of this summer we have been dealing with night time low blood sugar while she sleeps. Most of the time we catch it and give her something to correct it but more times than not 4 to be exact she has woke up in the morning feeling nauseated, headache and sometimes throwing up yet her bloods sugars are showing normal to the 200's when we test her. One of the times she had to go to the hospital.
Avatar n tn Also I have a lot of other problems with increased carb intake such as I get very very very hungry all of the time,I get very thirst,frequent urination just to name a few. When I cut way back on my carbs my blood sugar will hang out in the high 90 to 115.I told my doctor this information and the fact that I was controlling my blood sugar by eating very low carb.He kind of looked at me like I was crazy and ordered a Hba1c,c peptide and blood sugar.It was all normal.
Avatar f tn I definitely think his blood sugar is too high going from the sounds of your comments. Make sure you take his blood sugar before he eats to get an accurate reading, always use an alcohol wipe to clean the area before testing as any food or substance on the testing could cause a higher reading if not clean, and test before meals and just before bed would be my opinion.
Avatar n tn You are NOT going nutty -- your anxious feeling is a very physical reaction to low blood sugar. I am a tightly controlled diabetic, and I drop into the lower glucose levels occasionally. I have been tightly controlled for many years, and so I know from experience that a feeling of worry can be due to the low glucose situation and it will go away as soon as glucose levels rise to normal. It is PHYSICAL and not emotional. Other people get grumpy or irritable when hypo.
110491 tn?1274485537 Apparently dark chocolate has anti-oxidant properties that help to fight free radicals in the blood. I've also read that sugar feeds cancer, but you're quite right - we need to 'treat' ourselves now and again!
533880 tn?1237616052 I know there is something over the counter and safe for toddlers it keeps their immune system up I had to giv it to my oldest when he was on antibiotics, he got bad rash, it is about 20-30 dollars and you just sprinkle it in their food.( I cant think of the name of it I will try and remember) It puts the good bacteria back and it mite be what baby girl is talking about. Its in a green box and the are capsules.
Avatar n tn My 8 year old son wakes shivering about one a month. He is not always having a bad dream. Just now he woke, sitting up. I asked him if he was ok and he said, "swimming is going to be so much fun." He wasn't scared but couldnt quit shivering. He finally quit after a couple of minutes and laid back down to go to sleep. It was difficult to get him to realize that he was in bed and should be sleeping. I think he was living his dream sitting up in bed.
322357 tn?1194113075 ) Try not to eat any refined sugars or carbohydrates (crackers, chips, breads, cookies, candy) - it may kick you up for a few minutes (get your blood sugar up) but when it comes down you will feel sleepy. I try to avoid that stuff in the afternoons. Good thoughts coming your way Fi - hang in there!
572651 tn?1333939396 Tuesday I get the blood test to check for clotting capabilities for the LP a week later. I should get my other blood test results for thyroid, CBC, blood sugar, and cholesterol which was ordered from my annual physical. I think one of my daughters is sending me chocolate covered strawberries on this Friday for mothers day. Yummy! That will be the highlight of my week for sure! I'm sorry for those that are suffering this week. I hope you will get relief very quickly. Hugs to all.
Avatar n tn If i even have one or two good ones, it will prevent me from going through with any plans i had that day if they involved being away from a hospital. Like going fourwheeling up north, or hunting, of which i love to do, and have stpped doing because of this. Any one else have similar probs, and how do start doing what i love again?

1802044 tn?1316007025 Wow thanks for all the amazing replies. I ended up waking my parents up last night because I actually felt like I was going to die at any second. I find it so difficult to talk to people when I feel this way even though I know they're trying to help... I just get hostile and want to be left alone.
Avatar f tn it has been a long time, I lost my dad then I had breast cancer then my hubby died. my mom kept me going she needed me. I had to keep going. after several years. her alzeimers got worse and I asked her to live with me. against my family. they wanted to dump her in a nursing home. no way.

154927 tn?1205246451 The first five monts of treatment my labs were great. My wbc is 400 my rbc 8.9 and it keeps dropping. Im taking 2 neupogen shots twice a week and two procrit shots twice a week. Is this common in people with genotype 1. Can I do anything else to try and increase my wbc and rbc.
Avatar f tn I woke up one time swearing that there was a spider on the wall. I woke up my husband and he said there was nothing there. I feel like I'm totally awake, eyes open, speaking clearly, everything. I just don't understand why this happens. Sometimes when it begins, I tell him that it's not like before and I tell him that this time I really do see something. So...I do realize what I'm doing at the time. Then I go right back to sleep with no problems.
