I have to share with you my latest hands on learning experience regarding my D! When we were fishing last week I was happy, hoping to catch something, and then it started to rain with a cold breeze. Because of my hypothyroid I get cold easily, but this cold was really cold. I had dropped to 64, I thought not too bad so had some lunchable which included protein with crackers. This should have raised my BG and kept it at a safe number for a while. Lo and behold about 45 minutes later I am back down to 44, time to wrap it up. One of our friends on the trip is an RN and she explained to me that my body was trying to raise my body temperature, therefore; burning up all my glucose while trying to do so. I'm sure most of you knew this could happen, but I didn't a new learning experience for me!
