I've been a really good-girl for 3 days now. But I've felt bad all day. My energy level is almost non-existent and I've felt woosey, a bit breathless, and got queasy this evening. I am on metformin for my diabetes and a drug "ziac" for blood pressure. A few times tonight I suddenly felt so weepy! Could this have anything to do with my meds or my low intake of carbs? this is all new for me and I'd love your feedback!
Who am I?
I'd like to know.
Would you?

Hi janetlee,

I have never tried ziac, but my doctor put me on blood pressure meds about 3 months ago, and I've had to change meds twice due to low blood sugar. Some blood pressure meds can cause this, so check your sugar often especially if you feel "woosy", shaky, or sweaty. Your doc may need to adjust your dose if it keeps up. My sugars were under really good control before my blood pressure problem, now I'm struggling with either too high or too low. I just saw my doc again on Friday, and my bp is good now with my lower dose, but my sugar is high again. We're still trying to find a balance. I'm sure feeling weepy is a pretty normal reaction to all this new routine... I totally know how you feel. Take care and (((hugs)))

When you felt woozy or bad, what was your blood sugar? The most important tool you have is your meter. It is not uncommon when first dealing with diabetes and trying to control your sugars to feel bad. Your body needs to adjust and you need to find what medications work and when to take them. Check your sugars often and see what you can eat and what you can't. You can do it.
