I have been struggling to get my A1C back in the <6% range for a while. At one time I was in the 5.6 to 5.8% and had reduced Lantus to 22 units and metformin to 500 mg twice daily. I am up to 30 units Lantus and 1000 mg twice daily with fasting BG running between 105 to 125 mg/dl. Partly this was stress as the love of my live was having heart trouble and I had hernia surgery which keep me off the bike.
I have been getting some great rides in the early AM before the Texas heat gets oppressive, about 100 mile per week. My fBG has dropped to 75 to 80. Last night I woke up with what for me is usual hypo symptoms, hot, sweaty, shaky (that was so bad I didn't test because I don't think I could hold the meter) plus something new, the palm and fingers of my right had were itching like crazy- does this mean I am coming into money? Anyway, just wondering if anyone else has has itching during a hypo?
If I get another hypo I will decrease the Lantus a unit or 2 and see what happens.
