I often feel like this…better when my numbers are a bit high, logy when they are 'normal'. Diabetes is different for everybody. I think its time to talk to your doctor again, or find a different one. Do you see an endocrinologist? They might be able to help you, too. Good luck, and please keep me posted…I care! :)

My daughter had such a hard time changing her numbers and feeling good, because she would range from 30 lows to 699 highs(the day she was diagnosed). She felt the difference after we kept changing her number zones and tightening them up. We started with a goal of 100-250, really hard to do when she is so active and eating at weird times. Then we tightened them down to 70-180, now we strive to be 70-140. This took us 2 years, but with patience and lots of free foods to fight off hunger, we did it. She still has those high days once in a while, when we don't understand why she woke up at 200-300, but we just make sure we cover the high and her next meal and eventually she feels better. Headaches, stomachaches, being hungry or not wanting to eat eventually let up(don't think they ever go away). Just be patient!

Yea I do I normally run 200 to 400 as well and when i get mine down in the "normal" range i feel the same as u do. I get really bad headaches and my stomach feels like its eating from the inside out. You feel that way becuase you have been out of control for so long that the normal range feels bad and ugly and the high range feels good. I have fought it for years… well just saying i feel what your going thru

I have type 2 and it has only been two years And I know it is hard do to mine use to get up in the300 to 400 ans know I am on insulin and it is helping some time by keeping down to below 300 , but when it gets to low Iget the shaky and sick to my stomick and then I get the to the point where I feel over heated, So it is very hard to get to nomal range, I do whis you all the best and good luck .

I too am having this problem. For years I had high numbers and didn't care. When I started to get down to normal I had the low blood signals but all was okay. As I continued to stay normal things did get better as my body came normal and use to it. Yet I still feel good at the 300-500 numbers. But it is better to be under 150. Good luck!

one thing I hate is when you go from a high to a low at a short period of time and that is where you try to fine why this happens and how if you try to do everything that you feel right. that is what I don't understand and hard to understand as well.

I'm the same way. I feel better when my sugars are higher and feel like they're low when they are actually good. I agree with Packrat ^ though, I think its because my body was used to it being higher for so long that that feels "normal" to it. Ive been a diabetic for 12 years and I have those crazy days too, and it drives me crazy! I dont get hungry though like you said you do, but some days I feel like I cant wake up from a haze. Almost like I'm sleep walking through the day- fresh air and exercise (even though its tough to go and do it!) usually help me out. =)

Yep I felt good too and when I first started to get them in the right I felt like krapp,from then on I was working on keeping them good , It is a lot of work but at 150 or so you start to do damge to your eyes and other orgons
and I do wish to live a long time and keep my feet.
but its up to you to do the work
Best wishes

I think it is because you have been so high so long, that you feel low at 100 to 120…regards packrat2
