One day I wake up with a glucose level of 187 the next day it's 70. The physical feeling are the same on both days, both readings. Gittery, faint, weak…I guess I don't understand what my body is doing. Any suggestions? I am keepig log of course, but between dr visits I'm getting pretty down about it. Thanks for your help.

Is your body used to having very high numbers? Sometimes when your body is having normal BS levels but has been used to having high levels all the time, it "registers" like hypoglicemia and you feel weak, sweating and tremors but you are in a normal BG range

At first, even with meds, diet and exercise, my numbers were erratic. It just took weeks for me to start leveling out, then if I forgot something that I wasn't aware yet would raise my BS I would wonder all over again! found that by testing one food at a time, test 2 hrs after I ate it to see how I reacted that day to that food—-the smoother it became. The longer you follow an effective regiment, the body seems to gradually settle down and be a bit more predicatable. Good Luck!! Pat R

We all get confused from time to time, especially when the numbers are not where we want them to be at the time. But you do have to eat the correct way and not just what ever you want to eat. Watch your carbs that s very important too. Are you on any medications or are you using diet and exercise for now trying to maintain you blood sugar?
