Hitting a Low

Lately it seems like I’ll have pretty level blood sugar readings for a couple of days and then get walloped with an out of the blue high or low. Today I had a pretty bad hypoglycemic episode at work. I was at my desk this morning when I suddenly felt hungry and weak. With shaking hands I checked my blood sugar. It was 58 and dropping, and I felt awful. I drank a little regular soda to try to get my sugar up and ten minutes later it fortunately had jumped to 109. The rest of the day I felt off and even neared hypoglycemia again before dinner.

Spikes like this don’t make any sense to me. I’m pretty consistent in the times and types of food I eat, but still my readings often surprise me. Mr. Diabetes doesn’t seem to be playing by the rules.

  1. The part they forget to tell you is that Mr. Diabetes changes the rules on the fly and doesn’t always notify you… 🙂
