Well to my new friends here:
I became diabetic about 10 years ago
I was very unhealthy. Never took time to - ate what my kids/Grandkids ate. I wasn't active either all leads to out of control sugars
So I got on a kick of dieting (extreme) bought a gadget to let me know if I met my "goal" for the day STEPS. If it was 10:00 pm I did the Wii Fit to finish up steps
Long story short my sugar was bottoming out. I found myself going in a closing tunnel. I was in a store. I was trying to find their Gatorade cooler. I was close to passing out (I don't know why someone didn't help me). Well I drank half of bottle shaking so bad crying. Didn't know what was happening!
Second time I was sitting in chair. Got really nauseous. Got REALLY sweaty. Husband said u meds to go to the ER. I agreed. Well on the way there I Thot maybe it was my sugar. But it was also heart attack symptoms. Well the crackers in my purse helped long story short after many heart tests the cardiologist said I recommend a heart cath!?!? Went through it came out fine. Guess what my conclusion was. LOW BLOOD SUGAR!!
It has happened two more times. But I know the feeling so I carry bars with me
My Dr said high blood sugar is forgiving but low blood sugar isn't. Very true
It was low carb dieting. When you exercise you need carbs my opinion!!!
