Okay, so I'm wondering if I have too many diabetes meds floating around in my body because my sugar keeps bottoming out at night.
Last night was a stinking nightmare! I woke up at midnight feeling like crap, so I tested. 42. God only knows why I woke up. I was out of milk, so I ate a piece of toast. That brought it up to 60. (I test in 10 minute intervals during these episodes.) So I ate a frozen banana, and that brought it all the way up to 100. Back to bed I go, only to get up at 4:45 feeling odd again. This time wasn't as bad, I was siting at 77. (Which isn't actually all that low.) So I ate toast again becasue it's what I planned on having for breakfast anyway. (I've really got to get to the grocery, lol!) I didn't do the 10 minute thing, opting instead to get ready for work and test before leaving the house. By then I was all the way up to a whopping 88. I stopped by the grocery this morning and got a single serve milk and drank it on my way to work. Now I'm sitting at 104 and I feel pretty good.
I may have to make a special appointment to discuss this with the doctor. I'm supposed to go back mid August anyway, but this is the third time this month the above scenario has played out in one way or another. I feel so stupid. For months I've had everything under control, so I can't understand why it's all gone to the dogs now. Could it be the weight loss? Do I need medication adjustment? Should I be taking my nightime meds differently? UGH!
Sometimes this stuff makes me so angry I want to punch something.
Thanks for listening. ~Ima
