The week before Halloween, I had a bad episode of Hypoglycemia. My daughter called the paramedics. My blood sugar had gone down to 54. I had been tryng to lose weight and a few weeks prior to this episode I was in Wallmart and looking at the products that were available for Diabetics, and I saw a sugar blocker. I had been taking it and also my Diabetic medication (Glipizide), which I take twice a day.
On the night I had the hypoglycemia episode, I had taken my Glipizide but was late eating my meal because I was involved on something on the computer. Then when I finished what I was doing on the computer, instead of eating right away, I was tired from the work I had been doing so decided to take a nap first and the next thing I knew was when I woke up with the bedroom light on and the paramedics standing over me and having me drink some sugar water. They also told me I needed to eat something. My next-door neighbor had come over to see if she could help in any way and she made me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I threw away the rest of the sugar blocker I had been taking because I think taking it along with my prescribed medicine was just too much.
