I made a HUGE mistake. I don’t know why I did it, but I didn’t think about the consequences. I am fairly new at this diabetes stuff. I need to take better care of myself.
I didn’t have breakfast and found myself eating some candy (handful of gummy hearts) right before lunch. I then had my byetta, and a nice healthy, low carb salad and my other meds after the salad. Metformin and glipizide.
Shortly after lunch, I had a major low. Well, major for me to ever had. It was 59. I started sweating, had the shakes, and was sick to my stomach. I also had nothing on me to bring my sugar up quickly. I was at work and had a student worker run and get me a coke. It was scary and another co-worker stayed with me until I felt better. I was scared. I guess what happened was my sugar was high and then with the byetta, it crashed?
I knew better to eat that Candy, I don’t know why I did. I was weak, but I caused trouble for people at work. I guess I will learn.
