Low bloodsugar?

Doea an extremly low bloodsugar of 35-40 make anyone else very tired once it goes back up?

Oh you betcha! Get that wrung out, just need to sit or lay down feeling.

it completly wipes me out.

I am usually tired all day after I have a BS less than 40.

sure does!

oh yeah, can take it right out of me… hate going to 30… 8)

ya and i get dark circles under my eyes and i get really pale

Wow… I was just about to ask the same question when I found yours. I get so wiped out… it’s almost like a VERY HIGH emotional state and then being shocked with very bad news. It feels like an adrenaline high then a huge crash for the rest of the day. I even get light-headed and dizzy and all I want to do is sleep. I was away this weekend seeing my family after a very long time. I had so many highs and lows that all I did today was sleep. Diabetes affects every organ, every cell, and all emotions we experience. That’s why the better we can control our BG levels, the better off we’ll feel. It’s a never-ending battle but thank the Lord for OmniPod and other pumps.

Oh, yes I am there.

Absolutely. It wipes me out for a good couple of hours, if not the whole day. I usually get a monster headache with it, as well. I had a diabetes educator tell me to drink a diet coke or take an Excedrin if I’m getting a bad low blood-sugar headache, so I take that to heart. :slight_smile: I looooove diet coke, and don’t mind a good excuse to drink one. :slight_smile: It probably doesn’t help with the whole feeling tired afterward thing, though.

I dont even get that low and I am wiped out for about 3 hours or more. I hit the 60’s and it ruins a half a day

I’ll probably be shot for writing this but sometimes… ONLY SOMETIMES :slight_smile: when I get a bad headache from a low, I’ll eat a litte, just a little dark chocolate and my headache is gone within minutes. I know the sugar and fat is no good for me but the Advil makes me feel awful and just takes the edge off of the headaches. I also drink my juicy juice which I have with me all the time. It has exactly 15 gms of carbs which I just use for correction.

Oh yes! Massive headache and I just want to crawl into bed and sleep! My body will ache sometimes as well.

I feel like I’v ebeen hit by a truck for the rest of the day. Not fun.

I’ve only been that low once when I was in the hospital. I couldn’t even lift my head up for the rest of the day.

That’s how I feel when I’m high.

Either way… it feels awful. We’re all walking a tight rope. If they can make an artificial heart, what’s the holdup on a pancreas???

Im a type 2 and doesn’t even go that low. My low is 70 and below… and even when I correct it to about 90, it usually takes quite some time to feel “better”.

yes it makes me get really sleepy and so cold

A few hours after - Horrible Headache, but only sometimes. Pale.
Always tired that day and the next.
The next day I have trouble keeping my bg down in normal range.
