I think there are a lot of factors here that you need to look into.
Firstly, pizza acts on your blood sugar quite quickly (i.e. it makes it rise pretty quickly) so how long was it before you had the shaky feelings? Also, it may have been the pizza that made you feel normal but you panicked and ate the sandwich and attributed the 'more normal' feelings to eating the sandwich. Do you have a blood glucose monitor? The ideal time to test is when you feel shaky. What medication do you use? Also, how long do you leave between meals?
I'm type 1 on insulin. Sometimes, when I eat a meal afterwards I feel a little 'strange' and anxiety hits me and I'm SURE I must be having a hypo, so I check my blood sugar and it's okay. But I do find that if I eat something that makes my sugar rise quickly (such as pizza) a little while later I get these strange feelings - these strange feelings are my blood sugar falling quickly even though I'm not having a hypo. Maybe you need to eat some food that causes your blood sugars to be more level? I think you need to look at and eliminate factors one by one, and maybe make a couple of changes, and you'll start feeling heaps better.
I'm not sure about the sweating though!
Hope this helps,
Okay, have you tried other carb foods such as pasta, potatoes and rice? What affects do those have compared to the bread? Also, what kind of bread is it you eat? That's really strange. If your blood sugar is normally high, and then go down to a 'normal' level you may experience those shaky feelings. But it doesn't sound like yours is high.
I know nothing of what's in a taco salad as we don't have them here but I'm presuming no carb. When you get the shaky feelings, try something else carb based to see what that does - have you seen whether a cereal such as muesli does the same thing?
I know how frustrating this is, believe me, so just hang in there and I'm sure between us all here you'll find a solution! Having diabetes requires patience, I think, so stick at it!
Best of luck x
What you describe are CLASSIC hypoglycemic indicators. HOWEVER, since you say that when this has happened you have checked your blood not only on your own but while at the doctors and in both instances it was normal.
I think your only alternative, if this really bugs you, is to meet with your doctor and map out a strategy for tests to determine why you get the symptoms you get. But from a diabetic standpoint, the BG is your indicator, and yours is telling you that neither the symptoms NOR your half a sandwich has anything to do with your diabetic tendencies!!
