Does anyone else get/can get SEVERELY fast bg drops when out in the cold, even for <5 mins?
I can have this, where just walking from the car to a building or across a parking lot in the cold, my bg can drop up to almost 50 points/MIN!!! SOO dangerous!! Sometimes it drops 30 pts/min and sometimes 10/min? Either way…all are VERY FAST and this can happen even when I have NOT just taken insulin, and my bg is already high (high 200’s/300’s)…My bg went from 300 to 120 in about 4 minutes maybe less
Now, any time I go out int he cold, especially this week, I don’t know if/when this will happen! So I have to keep bg high to prevent this!! Soo scary I know of another diabetic where this happens and his mom said his Dr. said yes, you then must keep bg high and have juice/skittles etc before going out, even with no insulin!! And my dr. wonders why my A1c is high?!..
This cold is keeping me in
