Over the past two days I have noticed that shortly after I have finished eating, I am breaking out in sweat and when I say shortly I am talking 15 minutes or so and then again 2 hours the usual spiking period. Is this an indication that the body is fighting against the insulin? has anyone else experienced this? This insulin taking is causing me major concern because sometimes I feel like it dictates to me when I must eat and even how much I should eat and if I dont fight the feelings with it sometimes, it would want to take control of my body. Am I getting paranoid or something? Sometimes after eating my legs feel heavy as if the food has gone straight to them? Sometimes I feel weird sensations in my fingers too after eating like the food is attacking the nerves in my hands… and then I fear I may have eaten too much! So now I am trying to cut down even more! Soon I will be eating out of saucers and desert bowl plates! and will disappear at the rate as my son looked at me this evening and said Mummy u r losing more weight. Yes I want to but not at the rick of starving myself! has anyone else ever had these experiences?

For me, it can mean my BS is going up or has peaked and is moving down. I'm not having extreme ups and downs, it's just one of the body's ways of saying something is changing.

I find if I get flushed after I eat it is because I have had too many carbs. I am not on insulin and I really think my resistance is picking up. I have been doing some things to combat that like eating a much more resticted carb diet and exercising more and that seems to have been helping so far.

But that is just me and you may want to talk to your doctor about it. Your body is telling you something, you just need to find out what it is really saying. Sometimes it is different than what we want to hear.

Yes…I do ALL the time. My legs feel heavy after I eat for years. I was almost admitted for diabetic ketoacidosis 3-4 times in the last 6 years. Starving is the worst thing for me…when I used to be on Metformin, I was starving…and my pancreas rejected it, and I was allergic to it, so, too much of too little eating will eliminate most of the sweats, BUT, another problem arises…high risk of future or current blindness…didn't mean to scare you…sorry. I have found that when I walk and run, I can eat a good meal about 45 minutes later, as my body and metabolism are burning sugar more then, and if I am careful, I can avoid the sweating and related. If I eat a big breakfast, I feel 100% better no matter what…for the entire day. What is strange in my case is that when I eat a big breakfast, or even a medium sized breakfast, my average blood sugars are higher and stay higher. I feel a lot better, though, because my body does NOT handle lows very well. Lows are really super bad for the eyes I found out through a really good doctor. I have been trying to moderate my numbers out more—through moderate exercise and increase in my potassuim, as I have been low on potassium lately——INSULIN RESISTANCE—-I was told I have one hell of an insulin resistance in the E.R. about a year and a half ago…sorry to swear, but that is literally what the told me—-I had a small -medium meal that day, then developed distorted vision, and went to the E.R.—-they took my blood sugar and it read Keytones first, then they retook it, it said it was 244…after and hour it decided to drop down to 144—-they took some kind of test, and said I had a SERIOUS serious serious insulin resistance——that may not help you—sorry—-sweating after eating I was told over the years is NOT good—-I would keep a close eye on it—-it means your body is struggling to kick out the insulin coverage it needs, OR, it could mean you have keytones…ANNE
