i cannot get a good night sleep- it's been like this for so long, it's my normal. but i'm not getting sick, so my body is tolerating it. i have a theory based on my 23andme genetic testing and my family history that i am insulin deficient.
is it possible that my insulin is at low at night and my body senses that, causing glucagon to be secreted in order to dump blood sugar into my system? i've heard that that might be causing the heat-ups (not to the point of sweating) and the follow-up chills (as opposed to perimenopause since i am 49). i took my blood sugar in the middle of the night right when a heat-up began and it was only 80. but in the morning my bg was like 98.
i had an OGTT in dec. 2013 fasting 90 /half hour 165/one hour 128/two hours 128. the nurse practitioner said everything was A-OK and to make sure to have my A1c tested once a year.
anybody having these heat-ups/chills in the middle of the night?
