Sugar Swing??


It looks like today I am riding the sugar swing and I am not sure how to get off. It also occurs to me how little I know about the workings of my body. I do know that I ate a piece of birthday ice cream cake as I shouldn't have. Less than an hour later I am on my way to work and I am not feeling so hot and notice the shakes starting. I take out my meter( Thanks Mom ) and test my blood sugar-39.

Well that isn't good so I eat a Luna bar and keep driving to work. When I get here I think it has to be wrong so I test again-46.

Now I have eaten the Luna Bar and a packet of peanut butter crackers and a banana. I am getting freaked. I test again-232. WTF???

I still don't feel cool but I am thinking I need to learn the workings of my system. Should it be as high as 232 and how the hell is going from 39 to 232 effecting my body?

I don't like this at all. I may have been better without the meter as I was oblivious.

Jenn, normal levels for the random test you take should be between 70 and 125. if yours are swinging like that a trip to the Dr. is in order because you need to rule out diabetes, such lows can cause kidney, liver and eye damage! Dont play with that!! (Do you hear the Mom in my voice?) :}
