i second that. when i was pregnant and used to having bg in the low normal range, i wouldn't be symptomatic until i was in the 30's or 40's, but now that i'm back to normal i'm symptomatic again in the 50's like i used to be. also, when i was first diagnosed, i got shaky in the 120's as my bg had been so high for so long that having it anywhere near normal made me feel horrible!

Putting on my "doctor of how the body works even when it's not supposed to" hat:

Remember the body (like all else) follows the principle of least resistance:

- Once the body has been at a given blood sugar for a while (defined by person, age, etc) it will THINK and ACT as if THAT NUMBER is it's normal sugar.

- If one is USED to running sugars in the 180-200 range (or has been there for a few hours) then when one returns to 'normal' (80-130) they will feel LOW and sweat and show signs of hypo

- If on normally runs around with a 'normal/low' (60-80) then a 55 won't even cause the body to break into a sweat! That's why the recomendation for long term diabetics is to raise their 'average' blood sugar to around 110-120, thus enabling body to feel 'low' when it gets below 70!!

Dr. hat off....


I have noticed that the above works most of the time.

Is this a common symptom for others who have had high blood glucose for a long time? Hubby breaks into sweats and gets weak when his blood sugar returns to normal after being high for a while.
