From experience and class- have 15 grams of carbs wait 15 mins and recheck sugar. If still low take 15 grams more carbs. They say to eat orange rather than juice because of fiber in the orange. Keep glucose tabs with your because those are measured out for lows.

I eat like crazy sometimes too, they can be so frightening! However, usually I try drinking a glass of milk - the lactose in the milk is a form of sugar, and the protein/fat helps my blood sugar to stay up. I wait 15 minutes, recheck my sugar. If it's going up, I leave it be. If it's the same or still going down, I drink more milk or have some fruit.

Yes I have. Try a 4 oz juice, I think orange is the best, apple and or pomegranite works wll too. Low calories and healthy, plus get your sugar back up without going crazy. Drink your juice and set down and relax for a few minutes and things should get better.

I've been a Type 2 diabetic for a long time. I'm treating it with oral meds and insulin. (Janumet, Humalog and Lantus). In february I "restarted" my Spark Journey and have been doing very well with many small steps in the right direction. However. I have times when my blood sugar readings drop in the 70's or even as low as 65. When this happens, the shakes begin and I have uncontrollable episodes of eating anything and everything I can get my hands on. I feel so out of control. Does any one else have problems in this area. What do you do to handle these times. Please help!
