Does anyone else have panic/anxiety attacks? I am wondering if being a diabetic is making me more prone to anxiety? Also, I have been watching my carbs and notice that some days my #s are better for no reason. One day I can have a blood sugar fasting after eating between 96 and 105 and then it goes up to 120 - 138 eating the same foods! Now if I went on Metformin could I eat more and my blood sugar be lower? Wish I wasn't only 100 lbs because then I could lose weight to get my blood sugar down.

Being low blood sugar is always a problem especially when your driving stuck in traffic have to remember to bring snacks like bananas

As far as "better for no reason goes" ;
You may think you eat pretty much the same thing every day, but the type and amount of protein that you eat (or don't eat) with your carbs will affect your readings.

You're definitely not alone! I've become very anxious over the years too. I wonder the exact same thing! It may be that diabetes just causes a lot of stress at times too which results in making me feel anxious. I also have developed a fear about going low which does not help either
