I hate numbers especially with dyscalculia (dyslexia with numbers). I want to share my experiense with my blood sugars and hope this helps.
When my morning fasting bs ran between 170 and 200 my lows hit about 100 and would be severly hypoglycemic at 80. When I hit 100 I would drop to 80 in less then 10 minutes and continue to drop.
Now that my bs is under control the story is different. My morning bs runs 80 to 90 and sometimes just over 100. This morning it is 73 and I am not hypoglycemic but should eat soon. Now at this # it does not drop quickly.
Many have asked what their numbers should be. Those I feel are individualized according to what your normal is. My dr kept telling me that if I got my blood sugars under control that I would not have a problem with 70, 80 or 90. He was right.
