this might be a rant and not venting. all the medical stuff and no one has the answers . i need to know how to raise blood sugar. mine has tested very low most of day. did the juice thing, had some dinner. all that is offered is glucose . they work quickly but don't stay around for very long. guess i will try some ice cream. the low blood reading, makes me vague, dizzy, sleepy . i can't water the plants, afraid i will fall. it truely truly sucks

babe,
if you blood glucose is staying that low, you might need to have you meds lowered...Make an appointment to have blood work done, see what you hba1c is then go from there.

you bet. i am diabetic. my blood sugars go up and down. neither is good. but low is really tough. can lead to passing out . last few days, it has been really low, and i am having some problems getting it up and keep it staying up.last night i injected 25 units of insulin when i had been injecting 30. trying to space out mini bites through out the day. clear, if not let me know.

Sorry to hear about that Babe, I hope you get to feel better soon.



Can you eat a candy bar or 2 to get your sugers up?

babe, that sounds like what you need to do..Lows are nasty and scary..Do you still feel them when they start? I would how ever talk to the doctor about lowerin the insulin..I take 11 units at night and that works fine..I am going to discuss going back on oral meds now and see what happens. But, I am happy that you got those glucose numbers up. I find things like rice or potatoes or a part of a soda do the trick if I'm out of glucose tabs...
