The more close my A1c get's into normal range or in normal range, I get non stop 24/7 shakies When my A1c was high, I didn't have the shakies. Feels like low blood sugar 24/7, makes a person wanna devour a ton of carbs, so the shakies go away.

Anyone else ever experience ?
I get shaky sometimes and it won't relent easily. It is a wretched feeling to have, and it sounds like what you are experiencing.
There are times that I can drink a 2 liter soda, and there is little rise in BS.

Re: shakies, what I have discovered after 64 years with this disease is that just because the books say our A1c should be ??, our bodies have a different idea. Here in the US the college of physicians changed the rules for type 2, it used to be meds if your A1c was at 7 or above, but as of 3/1/2018 the scale is 8% no meds if your A1c is 8 or below...My body never read the book and my endo has her patients run a higher A1c-especially us older ones because it is safer and we feel better. The shakies are telling you that your brain is stealing glucose from your limbs , because the brain uses glucose as fuel and if there isn't enough in your blood to sustain it , it will steal it from somewhere else, if you have neuropathy, same reason, raise your BS. I run mine not lower than 140, I have none of the "bad" things that we have all been warned about if our BS is higher I am safe (for me) at 200, you need to find out where your body is comfortable, listen to your body. My husband's aunts would both pass out it their BS got below 120, Their doctors finally got the message. I've been a type 1 for over 64 years. Find your level. Bye jan
