I'm Peyton and I'm a type 1 diabetic.
So I had a low for the first time in a month and I'm just puzzled.
My diet is always eating. I eat non stop. If I don't, my sugar will dramatically drop like it did today… But I ate today… Am I eating the wrong diet? It's the only thing that has worked.. But now I just don't know…
Yesterday I ate breakfast (a whole grain bagel with strawberry cream cheese, chocolate milk and a a couple swallows of juice) and then didn't have lunch other than like three or four bites of this strawberry sugar stuff. I came home and ate a snack or two then had chips and salsa for dinner. I felt totally fine despite skipping a meal. Then, this morning I had a bowl of cereal, a couple swallows of juice, and a few slices of peaches. My sugar started to get REALLY low around 10 o'clock to the extreme.. and then like at 12 I took a glucose tablet at lunch and for lunch, I ate another bowl of cereal(more like two). I felt better and then at 3 went home. I checked my sugar and it was 69.
How? Why? I took a glucose tablet… It was the first time I ever used one but I'm just sick of this..
How do I prevent this? I know I shouldn't ever skip a meal but I didn't have anything available while at school. But even today, I ate all two meals so far, AND a glucose tablet. Am I eating the wrong diet for a type 1 Diabetic? What can I do?
