Blood Sugar Going Too Low

7611 Views 15 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Shanny
I just had a terrible low. I was writing an email and I got really light headed and I COULD NOT THINK. I tested at 34 at 11:05PM. I saved most of my carbs for dinner, I ate cheese ravioli and a dinner roll and took a large bolus at 7PM. I have a diabetes check-up with my doctor tomorrow. I have never blacked out but I am afraid that I might. I really do not have much warning until my blood sugar drops below 45. My Mother goes to bed very early and is hard of hearing and I am afraid that I may black out while being alone. I just can't stop taking my insulin and I am not sure why I am going so low. I may need to to reduce my Actos or Glucotrol. I have already reduced my basal insulin by 10 units at night over the last 3 weeks. I hope to get some answers tomorrow. :confused::noidea:

sounds like you should mention switching insulins to your doc. I had that problem about 10 yrs back. Now im on humalog which you take depending on how many carbs you have. So your covering exactly what you eat if you do it right and your lows wont be so LOW. I had a crash the other night from drinking on st pattys day and luckily my gf was there to get me what i needed.
