is it just me or does anybody else who is in the process of learning how to control their blood sugar have a problem with their sugar levels swinging 100 pt either up or down regardless of diet or meds?
and further when my sugar wings low and by low i mean either dropping 100 pts from fasting or under 300, my attitude is garbage and i'm an anger ball. when it swings high, up 100 pts from fasting or over 400 i'm a cry baby wrapped in a sleepy depression.
just for back ground (over 5 yr period) highest sugar was 591 lowest sugar was 80 meds include 500 mg to 2000 mgs of metformin a day 5 ml to 20 mls of lantus a day glimepiride and benazepril and a low dose aspirin a dayView Thread
