Can You Feel Your Blood Sugar Rise

Share on facebook

The signs and symptoms of diabetes, particularly of type-2 diabetes, can frequently become quite subtle and can, even for some years, be easily associated with additional circumstances which happen to many of us on occasion. However, now with a great deal of information available on those tell-tale signs, it can be becoming simpler to be on the alert with the factors that may need a trip to your doctor for a check-up. One of the first indication of diabetes is usually a condition known as polydipsia. This is the medical term for excessive thirst. In case you are always thirsty and your mouth still feels dry despite one has had a beverage, this is just another indication every one might not be well. The trouble which accompanies constant thirst is polyuria, which is the frequent need to pee. Excessively you happen to be passing more greatly urine than you ever once did, then this is an additional reason why perhaps an appointment with the doctor would be a good option. Providing you keep in mind the fact that a typical adult urinates between one and two litres each day, with polyuria that amount could be more than three litres every day ? it's not that you are usually expected to me

High Blood Sugar Symptoms: How High Blood Sugar Affects The Body - Health

Glucose, or sugar, is the fuel that powers cells throughout the body. Blood levels of this energy source ebb and flow naturally, depending what you eat (and how much), as well as when you eat it. But when something goes wrongand cells aren't absorbing the glucosethe resulting high blood sugar damages nerves, blood vessels, and organs, setting the stage for dangerous complications. Normal blood-sugar readings typically fall between 60 mg/dl and 140 mg/dl. A blood test called a hemoglobin A1c measures average blood sugar levels over the previous three months. A normal reading is below 5.7% for people without diabetes . An excess of glucose in the bloodstream, or hyperglycemia, is a sign of diabetes. People with type 1 diabetes dont make insulin, the hormone needed to ferry sugar from the bloodstream into cells. Type 2 diabetes means your body doesnt use insulin properly and you can end up with too much or too little insulin. Either way, without proper treatment, toxic amounts of sugar can build up in the bloodstream, wreaking havoc head to toe. Thats why its so important to get your blood sugar levels in check. If you keep glucose levels near normal, you reduce the risk of diabetes Continue reading >>

    low blood sugar or mini stroke?

    Greetings, everyone!
    I wasn't sure where to post, but this seemed to be the best place since you all are knowledgeable about low blood sugar issues. I'm sorry this is so long, but the details seemed important and I tried to cut as much as I could.
    I have been to my family doctor and to the emergency room regarding a scary experience this week, but gotten no real answers. I was hoping you could help guide me. I know you all may not be doctors, but I think that many of you might know enough about blood sugar to help me rule out a few things. Thanks in advance!
    I'm a 43 year old woman and I do not have diabetes or any other major health issues that I'm aware of. (Edited to add: I do have high blood pressure and I take Losartan. I can't remember if I took it that morning or not, though.)
    Last week, at around 11:30 am, I began to feel faint and had to lay down on my kitchen floor. From that point on, I couldn't walk or crawl. I can't remember if I'd eaten that morning--if I did, it would have been a small scone. The only strange thing I felt that morning was that my words/sentences felt a little "odd"-- as if I was having a little bit of trouble choosing the right words and getting them out. I sounded completely normal, however, and was energetic, though a bit jittery.
    I did raise myself up a little bit to take two very small bites of a scone and have some water that my babysitter brought me after this happened. This didn't help. I was on the floor about 1 hr 15 minutes by the time my husband got there, and here are all the symptoms I remember:
    I felt myself going in and out of consciousness on the floor (the tv and human voices would get really faint, then slowly come back partially, then fade away.
    I couldn't get words out a few times, but with some focus, was able to talk fairly normally. My sitter said my voice sounded shaky and a bit monotone.
    I had no pain whatsoever, no hunger, no nausea, no headache, yet felt uncomfortable and I was, of course, very scared.
    My hands were extremely shaky.
    I felt my face twitching repeatedly on several occasions and my stomach did as well.
    The ER:
    A lot of blood was taken, an EKG was done, blood pressure, a CT scan (mini stroke won't show up on those). They all seemed fairly normal.
    My blood sugar was 100 at the hospital.
    I didn't feel I could talk or walk normally until 4 pm (I sounded normal to the docs, but it took some focus for me to form the words/sentences). So, this whole thing lasted about 4.5 hours. I didn't feel I was "getting better" until just at the end and felt the same uncomfortable feeling (no pain or nausea or hunger or headache, though) from 11:30 am, on. I had an iv for about three hours.
    The only thing they diagnosed me with at the hospital was "syncope"--fainting. They said that at the ER, they only "rule things out" and that I'd need to talk to my family doctor to know more.
    At the ER, they ruled out a full-on stroke, but I read that a mini stroke can last from 1 hour to 24 hours, and I spent 1 hr+ laying still on the floor, so perhaps I had numbness on one side that went away by the time I got to the ER, and/or a droopy face that went away (my sitter couldn't see my face during this time), or perhaps vision loss (I tried to keep my eyes closed most of the time). I don't know if these symptoms could have gone away by the time I got to the hospital or not, or if they would have lasted the whole time that I felt bad--4 or 5 hours).
    My doctor didn't seem to think it was a mini stroke, but she wasn't certain. She seemed to think low blood sugar was the culprit. She said expensive tests would be needed to know for sure, and even then, we might not know.
    My questions are as follows:
    Could I have had dangerously low blood sugar (low enough to make me faint) before the two scone bites on the floor, then have a reading of 100 at the hospital? Would two bites have raised it that much?
    Would I feel weak, have some trouble with speech, not be able to walk, and, in general, feel "bad" for 4 hours with a 100 blood glucose reading and with an iv?
    Should the scone bites or iv have made me feel a lot better a lot more quickly, or is this a normal reaction to a severely low blood sugar experience?
    Thanks so much for your help!

    People who have dangerously low blood sugar tend to be diabetics who take insulin. Non diabetics or diabetics not on insulin can go low but their livers will kick in glucose. Your theory of a mini stroke or some type of seizure makes more sense. I would push the doctor to test for everything.

    I have been warned by my doctor that I may be headed toward diabetes because of my family history.
    I have tried to keep my weight under control. I exercise every day and watch what I eat.
    Never-the-less, I bought a glucose meter and was surprised to find that my fasting glucose reading is between 100 and 118 (average 109).
    I have redoubled my effort by almost totally eliminating sugar, white bread, potatoes, rice, etc. But the over 100 readings continue.
    Should I be concerned?

  2. ElkHunter

    I was told my doctor that a "normal" reading was between 90-105. ANYTHING, above and below that, you should be concerned with. I agree with what the doctor said, being just outside those numbers, you are stretching it.
    You say you watch what you eat. Seriously cut down on everything white. No Sugar, no white bread, nothing with white flower, no white rice, etc.
    Then, start looking at your carbs. Carbs equate to Sugar. I keep my carb intake to 100 carbs a day. Normal person can have 200 carbs a day. But, being diabetic, I'm not normal.
    You sound like you are off to a good start, but now you need to get serious about it. Get a book on carbs and start keeping track of carb intake. Start looking at diabetic cookbooks and what you can and cannot eat.
    You CAN improve what you are eating and reduce the numbers. You are not out of tolerance that far, but you are starting to get into a bad trend.
    Good luck.
