Has anyone gotten a sick feeling after having not eaten in several hours, Sat I got that sick feeling about 2:30 pm after having worked on a project for several hours. I ate a snack about 9:30 am. I got busy putting up my big camping tent to air it out, cleaning it out & drying it out after it got used by our youth group & several of the youth leaders. Fought the rain to get it up. Will take it down tomorrow evening after work. I ate a light lunch with dinner about 3hrs. Away & was fine after that.

Yeah I get that sick feeling when I haven't eaten for several hours even if my blood sugar isn't low. I think it is because my body is used to getting food on a regular timetable, so when I throw it off I just don't feel well. Diabetes can do some weird things in the body so anything can happen.

Thank you Just Joyce & Acousins I'm glad I'm not the only one. With my full-time work is easy to stop and eat, if I'm busy at work I'll grab s snack that I can eat on the go.. I work in a school where I have 2 RN's that care & ask how I'm doing.

Yes that has happen to me but you have to time yourself. You have to eat on a regular basis. If not you will get sick. Take healthy snacks will you or a protein drink.

This was happening to me everytime I got involved in a project. This happened mainly when I have an event where I am vending. For instance Saturday I ate breakfast around 10. We had an event at 3pm and had to be there by 1:30pm. I made lunch to take with me and totally forgot and left it in the fridge. We arrived, set up the tent, set out the merchandise and was talking to a friend when I realized I needed to eat. There were suppose to be a food truck so I wasn't worried too much about food. The food truck cancelled and I was not close to a sub shop or anything where I could get something. Thankfully, my sister had grabbed a big bag of Fritos. Unhealthy I know but I ate them and was fine. No blood sugar spike because I was busy walking around. I had to eat when I got home.

When I got home Saturday, I took a piece of bright card stock and used clip art to make a framed border. In the middle of the paper I typed DO YOU HAVE YOUR LUNCH???? and taped it to the front door. I won't be forgetting it again. I also started setting a reminder on my phone for the same time everyday and it beeps when the time comes for lunch. I set it for 12 noon and 1pm. If I am not hungry at 12, it will remind me again at 1. It works for me. Try that and see if it helps you.

Sometimes the first indication that I get that my sugar is getting low is nausea.
I find that spacing 6 small meals aday help keep the sugar more level. I try to have a carb and a protein in moderate amounts. I also make it a point to eat at regular intervals, whether I'm hungry or busy or not.
