What Type 2s Can Do When Blood Sugar Soars

The emergency condition most type 2s dread is hypoglycemia, where plummeting blood sugar levels can bring on a dangerous semi-conscious state, and even coma or death. However, hyperglycemia, high-blood sugar levels consistently above 240 mg/dL, can be just as dangerous. Left untreated, at its most extreme high-blood sugar, can induce ketoacidosis, the build-up of toxic-acid ketones in the blood and urine. It can also bring on nausea, weakness, fruity-smelling breath, shortness of breath, and, as with hypoglycemia, coma. However, once they’ve been diagnosed with diabetes, most type 2s have taken steps to prevent or lessen the most dangerous effects of high-blood sugar levels. Their concern shifts to dealing with unexpected, sometimes alarming spikes in blood sugar levels. The symptoms of those spikes are the classic ones we associate with the onset of diabetes—unquenchable thirst, excessive urination, fatigue, weight loss, and headaches. When you do spike, what can you do right away to bring blood sugar levels down? Immediate Steps You Can Take: 1. Insulin—If you are on an insulin regimen; a bolus injection should drive numbers down fairly rapidly. 2. If you are not on insulin Continue reading >>

    I recently started taking metformin again after being off of it for about 3 years. I started on 500mg ER once daily, and the side effects weren't too bad.
    My doctor and I discussed that my numbers haven't changed much in the few months I've been back on it, so we decided to double my dose. I now take one 500mg ER tablet in the morning and another at night. We started this a week ago.
    This past week I have noticed a lot of side effects. I've been incredibly nauseous all week, had bad abdominal pain, and been fairly constipated. I thought that these were pretty normal side effects, but it's becoming increasingly difficult to make myself eat, and I've been feeling so poor and fatigued that I haven't wanted to get out of bed. I did some Googling (probably not the best thing to do), and I saw a bunch of articles on lactic acidosis. A lot of the symptoms seem to overlap with metormin's side effects, so now I've gotten myself extremely freaked out. I know that it is supposedly rare, but I also have read that it can be very fatal. I don't have any history of kidney issues (I assume I would know if I did?), but now I'm pretty worried and am debating stopping the increased dose amount.
    I am a 23 year old female. I have a history of alcoholism but have been sober 5 months. Should I be concerned, or do my symptoms seem clear cut like the typical side effects?

    Hi, DD ~ I can only tell you that my experience in becoming able to tolerate metformin extended release was to get adjusted to it GRADUALLY -- only adding an additional dose very slowly, and after all the side effects from the initial dose went away. It took almost a year -- going from 500mg, x2,x3,x4. (With the name brand, Glucophage XR). Whenever I'd have any side effect, I would just skip or cut back on my dosage the next day.
    I think you should talk with your doctor about what's going on with you, and see if he thinks that a more gradual introduction to the increased dose might be helpful.
    Since you were feeling good on the single dose, but your numbers haven't been where you wanted them, I'm wondering what changes you've made in your diet and exercise routines, and if you've seen a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN)? The pills can't do it all.

Is My Blood Sugar Normal?

“Is my blood sugar normal?” seems like a simple question – but it’s not! The answer can vary dramatically based on your situation. Let’s look at some of the factors to consider. Please remember: you should figure out your personal goals in consultation with your doctor. Normal Blood Sugar in Diabetic vs. Non-Diabetic First, a quick note on how we measure blood sugar. In the USA, blood sugars are measured by weight in milligrams per deciliter, abbreviated as mg/dL. Most everyone else uses millimole per liter, abbreviated mmol. If you are in the USA, look at the big numbers, most everyone else look at the small numbers. In a person without diabetes, blood sugars tend to stay between 70 and 100 mg/dL (3.8 and 5.5 mmol). After a meal, blood sugars can rise up to 120 mg/dL or 6.7 mmol. It will typically fall back into the normal range within two hours. In a person with diabetes, the story is much more complex: Below 70 mg/dL Below 3.8 mmol Low Blood Sugars (Hypoglycemia). When blood sugars drop below this level, you may start feeling hunger, shakiness, or racing of the heart. Your body is starved for sugar (glucose). Read how to detect and treat low blood sugars. 70 mg/dL to 1 Continue reading >>

    Please share...
    Thanks

    We have discussed this a lot on DD. I did get hair thinning but most don't. I do think it may be that Metformin causses certain vitamin deficiencies. So make sure you supplement with B vitamins and ger your B-12 tested.
