I am still new to many of these things. Yesterday I was running around at work and was running a little low in the afternoon, and then all of a sudden I started feeling sick and dizzy and cold and sweaty. Also confused. So I checked mt blood sugar with my freestyle meter and it was 35. I got out my other meter, the one on the Ping remote, which usually reads about 20 points higher, and it was 39. I drank a whole bunch of juice and got it up to around a hundred.
I started on my way home, by subway and train, and checked at the halfway point, and it was 65, so I ate a piece of pizza. Due to having to wait ubtil it was safe to leave for home, I got home extremely late.
About halfway through the night it became obvious that I have picked up some kind of GI virus, most likely from the kids I'm working with this month. Now I'm sick and miserable, but my blood sugars are pretty normal.
Does this pattern sound familiar to anyone? It was really pretty scary. It happened so suddenly, and I think I was pretty close to not being conscious, based on the difficulty I had just using my meter and getting someone to get me some juice. I would have anticipated having strange blood sugars while I was sick, not before I was sick.
