wow, thanks. This all started after I had my gall bladder surgery. Prior to and still on Aticand for blood pressure, and Prevacid for too much stomach acid.
I started experiencing low bloos sugars, where by I would get a head fog, extremely nervous, anxious and sometimes panicky. My sugar levels can be find, according to normal levels, and then boom - I get the symptoms - ie... one eye goes blurry, I shake, gt nervous - and when this happens, my sugars have a tendency to tumble downwards.
for instance, a few minutes ago, I tested, and I was at 5.9 ( in metric terms the norm is between 4 - 8). All is well, and then without any warning - I started to tremble, got nervous, and my head gets a bit light headed, and my eye feels funny - those are my symptoms right now as I speak. Nothing brought it on - I am just in my office enjoying the day - no stress, no pressure. I just don't get it.
Every night I feel OK actually great - actually feel like myself - which becomes frustrating - cause not long afterwards it is time to go to bed.
I always sleep well, at least until 5ish in the morning, and the I wake up to the jitters and nervous feeling.... and then it starts all over again until evening, and sometimes well into the evening.
My doc tells me that I am stressed out - that is what is driving down the blood sugars - but I sure don't know what from. Never have had this before, not until the gall bladder surgery. So he put me on Ativan - well all it does is make me tired - still get the nervous stuff, and still wake up with the gitters...
What do you think, Gary
To answer your questions, yes, I am eating regularily, trying each time to have a carb, a protein, and a simple carb, and then determining the right amounts for each.
This is what is confusing and frusrtating. For instance - I can test, and be at for instance 5.9. I will have dinner which will include meat, multi grain bread, vegatables, etc. I will test about an hour and a half later and be lower than before I ate --ie..4.9 when in fact I was 5.9 before I ate.
I know that I am lower than when I started, even before I test, as i just do not feel right.
The other night, I had dinner, tested about 1.5 hours later and was around 7. I went for a 1/2 hour walk, and as I was getting home, I started to feel the signs. I tested and was in the low 4's. Just that fast. Makes me afraid now to even go for a walk in fear that the levels will plumet to quickly.
This has all started as a result of my gall bladder surgery. Never ever had this problem before. It is like something has gone wrong inside (adrenal, pancreas) etc. which is eating blood sugars....
It is kind of scary, and I think worrying about it has in fact increased some stress in me, which I guess in turn is helping to eat away at the sugars
Rosiglitazone is the generic that you will ONLY find offshore. Its still under patent here in the US so generics aren't available here. Jeannie gets hers from SharpMeds.com which is in Mexico. Same Avandia, same quality, just cheaper
