Type 2 - diagnosed in January, by May had my A1C down to 5.7 with diet and exercise, no meds. Everything has been beautiful since. I miss yummy food but have found that being really careful about what I eat helps how I feel on a daily basis.
This morning I woke up and walked to the bathroom and had some sort of issue. I almost passed out - cold/clammy/sweaty/weak/nauseated/dizzy/headachy. It lasted about 5 minutes during which I was panicking about maybe having to call in sick to work without having scheduled a sub. I got up off the floor long enough to walk downstairs to my meter, which said 109. My normal BG in the morning is 79-89 for the past few months. After I ate my normal breakfast - a hard boiled egg and a tiny bit of Stevia-sweetened oatmeal (12g carbs) and walked around a bit getting ready, I felt totally fine.
I’ve racked my brain trying to think of ANYTHING that may have contributed to a weird blood sugar thing, but nothing about yesterday or last night was different. Had salmon, salad, and half a dinner roll for dinner, followed by a long walk (okay, I went shopping - but I got in 4,000 steps!).
What was this? Is this a dawn phenomenon thing? Anything I can do so it doesn’t happen again? It was MISERABLE and I don’t want to repeat it!
