Just to let all my friends know, I am a hypoglycemic diabetic and until the end of September 2014 I've been doing real well at keeping myself in the "normal" range with a few high spikes into the 200 range and at times crashes down into the 50-60 range. Well since then I cannot get my bg to go over 72 in the mornings when I first test. I eat healthy 6 small meals throughout the day but I'm constantly have the shakes, headaches, nausea and dry heaves 95% of my day. I try to excercise as much as I am able to but when I move around I start getting all the signs of starting to crash. When I check my bg it's down in the 50's sometimes 40 range. I've even had 3 bad crashes to where I blacked out for a few sec and come back to but all I want to do after I crash is sleep for 6 to 8 hrs it's like it takes everything out of me. Since the start of me haveing crashes in sept. I've lost around 30 lbs… when this comes on I start freakin and getting scared because a few times my bg has dropped down to 32 and the other time was 28. I have my dr. and diabetic dietician appts. on this thursday. Is there any kind of meds besides what I take already which is the glucophage tablets to help bring me back up from my crashes that a dr. might be able to put me on to help me regulate and stay in the normal bg ranges? Any help would be awesome and a great help to me cause I'm running out of ideas i've been trying and nothing seems to be working.
