Had a 50 a little bit ago was just thinking... what's the worst low blood sugar you all have ever had and what did it feel like?

I remember when I was living at my parents house it was night time and I woke up in low blood sugar. It was a 27. At that stage in the game there was kind of a euphoria and calmness, but quickly I started to get tunnel vision and it felt like every cell of my body was in pain. I remember feeling very animalisitic as I made my way downstairs to the fridge. The thought crossed my head that if someone asked me if I was ok I woul probably deck them to get to the food faster. It was kinda weird. :crutch:

Anyone else have any stories? :boink:

Well your brain works 100% on glucose so when you hit 50 you start killing brain cells. I find once you really get sensitive to your body you can generally feel a 80-75, but if you are very focused on some task or something sometimes you won't know until it hits you in the face...

Low blood sugar symptoms for me are feeling cold, sweeting, getting a little tired, feeling kinda drained. Some times I will feel some vibrations or even shakes throughout my body. If it gets really bad I get a euphoria where things feel ultra clear... That's usually a sign to eat then check my blood sugar =)


High blood sugars can make you depressed, moody, lathargic, thrist, feel kinda stiff, sleep tired instead of drained tired, etc.


It's different from person to person but as you get your numbers more in check you will start to notice the warning signs for yourself.
