I’m still new to this diabetes thing. I had my first real lows (61, 57, and 42). I know that is not super low, but the weird thing is, I didn’t feel it. I have symptoms when it there is a sudden drop, and at those times I’m not even low…it is just that I went from 130 to 90 in a few minutes.
I’m not on a CGM nor a pump. I retested as well.
As being a relative newbie at this (dx 05-2018) I’m not sure what happened. I only added a wee bit of resistance training and that’s it. I know to reduce my insulin intake, but it still kinda freaks me out and I don’t want to discuss this with my dear husband, because he’s already freaking out a bit both by knowing my numbers and heck, the diagnosis as well.
I’m not sure what symptoms to watch for in a gradual decline of BS. I didn’t have the sweats or shaking. I was just tired and a bit dizzy…and only dizzy when I stood up or made sudden movement.
So I guess I’m asking for thoughts on how to tell if you are going low when there is no shaking or sweating? What is your experience with exercise and how do I fix insulin dosing? Funny thing, I’m still having a hard time keeping my morning fasting numbers under 110 (TBH, I’d prefer morning fasting numbers in 85-105).
Thank you in advance.
