Weird Question

Options
I have a weird question. I woke up this morning with my sugar spiked at 230. I've been sick and am battling a nasty chest cold, so I'm not too surprised, to be honest. Anyway, took my insulin shot, ate a very light breakfast, and just re-tested. I'm now down to a 153. Much better, but now I feel like I got ran over by a bus. Twice. Is it normal to feel so nasty when my sugar has dropped so much like that? It's been about an hour and a half since my shot. I feel like laying down and sleeping- just very tired and blaaaahhhh.

    It all depends on what your 'normal' sugar range is. It is not uncommon to feel symptoms of hypoglycemia when your sugar goes below your normal range but is well above a hypoglycemic range.

    Might be your cold making you tired. I too am battling a cold and although my sugar numbers are within my normal range, I would love to lay down and sleep.

    You probably feel nasty because of the excess sugar you had yesterday. How many grams of carbs did you take? What type of carbs did you eat?

    I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling well. The coombination of battling a cold and your blood sugar dropping quickly can make you feel tired. If you don't feel better, give your doctor a call. ~Lynn /Glucerna
