Hello Wilson,

Short answer call your doc. Almost certain you've got a combination of things happening.

Try doubling the cheese, in those sandwiches. Extra fat, extra protein will typically alter the "trajectory" so to speak re: what happens to blood sugar. Guessing that your body is massively over reacting to the carbs you're eating (e.g. breads, fruit, sugars) and having over-reacted ties concrete to your ankles in terms of your blood sugar (i.e. a T2 diabetic).

Now, it safe to assume you are not normally in the neighborhood of 80 as a regular thing? Again purely guessing, but typically, most folks who are sensitive, or anxious about such numbers don't feel "right" because their blood sugar cursing altitude is likely a hundred points (or more) higher than 80.

If so, its just a matter of time getting comfortable with a much lower number than you may (???) be used to cruising at. Again pure guess work here. Any possibility?

Would 100 feel any safer for you???

It takes more than low blood sugar to scare me. You should contact your doctor. It could be what you are eating or your medication or both.

I agree with Joyce to talk with your doctor. If you've made changes in exercise or food choices overall, your medication may need to be adjusted. ~Lynn @Glucerna

I don't know I take the Glumetza 1000 mg I eat a nice breakfast had a couple of grilled cheese in it still went down like now I test my blood sugar and is lingering around 80 something I hate when it around that

You're right that a low blood sugar level can be scary. It could be due to medication or exercise, or perhaps even what you're eating. Please discuss this with your doctor, and get her recommendation for how to avoid hypoglycemia. ~Lynn @Glucerna
