Double vision Double vision

Anyone ever get double vision from lows?
I get it when I go lowish for long periods like say 60 mg/dl for a few hours.
Normally I don't feel 60 but it seems to have a cumulative effect.

I can get double vision for hours afterward, then the images slowly come back together. I always get freaked out that it will stay like that for ever.
It is impossible to drive and I walk around the house with one eye covered just to get things done.

Any one else get this? do you have better coping than covering an eye?
Has anyone had their "eyes stick that way" ? Like my mother always warned me from crossing them.

I also get an odd sensation in my jaw when my sugar is high. I have never met anyone else who gets tight jaw with high sugars, but then again I am unique in all the odd ways. :)

The fastest way to get out of double vision is glucose tabs. Learn exactly what one 4 gram tablet will raise you. Then take only enough to raise you to 100.
Riding at 60 is too low for most activities; the cells work optimally at 100; and finally if you stay at 60, your body will drop you down to 40 to give you a wake up call with hypo unawareness.
Hey, we are all uniqueness personified! BUT sometimes we shouldn't keep some of those unique characteristics going.
Have your tester with you when you go to a car; test; have those tablets in your pocket ready. Bring yourself back as soon as you notice it, right away, with the tablet that requires no digestion time. Your body will thank you! So will all the drivers around you! :)
Tim, you've been around here. Are you putting us all on with this one? Is this how you're getting that nice A1c?
Riding low is a double-edged sword. Nice A1c; BAD complications.

Yes, extreme hypos for me, can result in me being unable to point my eyes in the right direction or even in the same direction.

That's pretty extremely low for me. Hasn't happened to me in ... oh... 13 or 14 years, not since I had a really long string of hypos and lost hypo sensitivity pretty severely. But yes I had to cover one eye to navigate on foot when that happened. That was for me the wake-up call that a string of hypos and an A1C in the 4's, was not actually that healthy for me at least!!!! Maybe Dr. B, but I seem to lack his knack!

Yes, and it is annoying. I don't have it for hours afterward, though. And I don't think you will get stuck that way forever. Mine resolves as soon as the bg is normalized.

Even old pros have a hard time with lows sometimes
After I have a run or long exercise I still drop low and sometimes I have a hard time bringing it back.
I will normally suspend my pump for exercise and 2 hours after. I am on cgm now but when I was not, I would not know how long I was low.

For me my double vision continues long after my sugars have recovered.
I would never suggest staying at 60 even though it is technically in the normal range.
Still none of us is perfect at managing this disease. I'm just happy I almost never go lower. My cgm is set to alarm at 75 and I can usually head off dropping further.

I think a low a1c comes from consistant normal range. Before I had a cgm, I would go from 250 to 40 . The 40s never seemed to help my a1c, It wasn't until I got my average glucose levels to be around 110 that my a1c came to good range.

So true. You've got it right.
I think symptoms are so slow in reverting, even when we get right to them.
Glad you replied. I was feeling bad that I had been too pushy.
Congratulations on the 110. You're absolutely right.
Exercise is another two-edged sword. Without it our insulin resistance rockets and with it we're on a Disney-drop ride. Glad you have that CGM. Makes life good!

I agree. Someimes the main indicator that I am getting low is a change in vision--I can't focus on a word well enough to read it. Now, my CGM helps alert lows.
