Somtetimes (like last night) I am awakened with a severe leg cramp often in both calves and find in virtually all cases my glucose level is either too low or way too high. Last night, my glucose level was over 400 which for which I took a correction bolus only to be awakened an hour later by more cramps. This led me to surmise my pump infusion set was obstructed so I made an unscheduled change. This happenned two more times during the night but at least my level was on the way down after that.
My endocrinologist has suggested I am blessed with this built-in alert system from Mother Nature. There’s a lot of buzz about low potassium or chemical imbalance but in my case it’s always related to out of whack glucose levels. I am curious as to whether anyone else has experienced this phenomenon?
