Diet, along with Glucophage 500 mg twice a day, and Glucotrol (glipizide) 5 mg twice a day is keeping me an average of 106 (last 7 days). 
 
I realize finally what a low feels like.  I didn't like it - cold clammy sweaty and nausea like motion sickness...I was at 73 which is still okay but it sure felt low to me when my  body is used to 180. 
 
So I also realize that popcorn doesn't affect my sugar really.  I don't know why - but it doesn't.
 
They have me on the carb counting plan - so I do 45 carbs a meal, no more, and not less.  That seems to work for me.  It also allows me to have some sugar still.

Ya, lows can be the nastiest feeling in the world, for sure. Sounds like you're on the right track though so, I'm sure things will start to level off for you soon. Hang in there and keep doing what you're doing!
