Ok I am new to this. But do have a question. I just started my 1st period since I was diagnosed. Do we change eating habits while we are on our periods? My blood sugar is way lower than it normally is, by about 35-40 points. Im very tired and get dizzy easy. Thanks any info will be apreciated. And for the en out there sorry if this is TMI :)

I have not noticed a difference, but i think everyone is different also. I would ask your doctor about that. Or you could try something like if your on your period and your sugar is low and your dizzy maybe eat a half a banana or something, or some other fruit. Wait 15 min and check your bs again. Good luck!

Honey you have NOTHING to be embarresed about. How are you going to know if you don't ask! All the interactions i have had on this site have been nothing but supportive and non judgemental as far as i can tell. We are all here for the same reason, to learn to control our beast(D) and get knowledge and support from one another. I hope this gives you some peace. Let me know if you get any answers on this issue. God Bless
