Hi everyone -
I know that recently diagnosed diabetics can feel low at much higher numbers because they’re used to their blood glucose being higher. My lows go like this: first nausea, then the shakes, then fuzzy headed feeling, then the rest of it that we all experience. So not long ago, I start feeling very nauseated, then get a bit shaky (although not too bad). It was lunch time so i assumed i was low. I quickly heated up my lunch (I’m at work) and check my blood sugar…87. Hmmm…so I thought maybe it’s something else. So I start eating anyway and withing 10 min start to feel better.
So my question is this…my blood sugar is in control (unless it’s high every other time I’m not checking) so is it normal for a diabetic to feel “low” on occasion at a number that wouldn’t otherwise make them feel low? I start feeling kinda of funky in the mid-70’s typically, not at 87.
Just curious - thanks!
