Why did it do this and what can I do to keep it from happening again. I had to go to bed and wait for it to get better. I still feel a little sick.

It has happend to me for no reason at all that I know of. The previous meal had been what I often ate and the usual time wth no roller coaster. Other times it was because I was coming down with or had a cold or flu.

I heard somewhere that certain carbs will do that. Spikes your blood sugar, then drops it quick. I think fruit juices and other foods with high sugar or carb counts. That’s why testing is so important. Not all healthy food is good for some of us. I found testing at the one hour time after eating helped me a lot in controlling my blood sugar. I found reading the labels helped me a lot. I don’t eat any food that has more than 5-6 net carbs per serving. If you don’t want sugar spikes don’t eat high carb foods.

Good luck
