Low Blood sugars?

Postby Kari.Nathan » Sun Mar 15, 2015 2:02 pm

Anyone out there having issues with low blood sugars?? Every time I start doing work (cleaning, laundry, actual job/work stuff) my blood sugars drop. Today I tried to clean up the dog poop in the backyard and literally was only out there for 10/15 mins when I started feeling ready to pass out, shaky and pukie. Check my BS and it was 40!!! Wondering if anyone else has this also? Thanks!

Do you have hypoglycemia? I heard some pregnant women will produce to much insulin and it causes that. Usually have to carry candy or something sweet where ever you go.

I had a blood test to check my sugar level because I'm on Metfomin (for PCOS purposes). It was 65 at first, which my doctor said was on the low end so he decreased my metfomin from 1500mg to 1000mg. I retested last week and my level was 70.
Have you taken the blood test where you need to fast; then come back 2 hours later after you ate this specific list of foods and test again? This may give you a more accurate result. I would talk to your doctor about it.

No to the blood test with food list. Were your levels fasting or just random? I'm going to keep a log tomorrow and then call her with the results. I know they won't say or do anything until I have a diary of some sort to show them.

I go in and have my blood drawn first thing in the morning (fasting). Then they give me a list that I'm supposed to eat. The list of foods equal to 100 grams of sugar. After I eat this list of food I have to go back 2 hours later for another blood test. Then they compare the fasting number, to how my body responded to the influx of sugar intake.
