4 months ago I got a new pump and CGM. I have been using the CGM pretty much all the times since.
My control is fantastic, much better than ever before. A1cs went from 6.9 to 5.8% I have almost no symptomatic lows anymore.
I have noticed that now I am very sensitive to both lows and highs like never before. I have odd new sensations when I go under 80. I never felt anything until about 30 before.
If I got up to around 180, I feel awful and almost sick. Not like DKA but like I am coming down with a flu or something.
It has totally thrown me off because I look at my CGM and expect that it is wrong because I cant be "feeling " 80 !!
It seems to be accurate though.
I'm sure I've done my body good by tightening my range, but now I just feel overly sensitive to blood sugar changes.
Has anyone else had this happen? Is this going to continue or will I settle into my new range ?
My endo says if I keep it tight, then the symptoms will get stronger , but I will get used to them and they wont bother me.
But even when I was first diagnosed I never had this kind of hypo and hyper sensitivity.
