Fasting glucose reading was 128 this morning…took it right after my husband had a strange rightsided sort of dizziness. Connected do you think?

when my stress levels are up my BS go up, the more stress the more they go up. Hope your husband is feeling better. All this does is show how much you worry about him. jackie

Thanks Jaclyn…just wanted to know if the stress response is that immediate 'cause my fasting glucose has not been over 126 since I started Metformin.
He is okay…just finished treatments for prostate cancer in late December so I do worry about anything unusual

We need a more information in order to give you a decent
response. What are your normal sugars like? type1,or2?
What did you eat before going to bed? prolonged stress
can affect some people.

Right sided dizziness????? This is really too little information, but any symptom like this especially one that is one sided I think should be evaluated immediately by a physician. Take care.

I agree with annon. This is something that should be looked at by a Dr. I don't want to raise your stress levels but when I hear of something one sided like that I think "possible stroke or mini stroke". I hope it is nothing.

Really need more information. What are his usual numbers and what did he eat before going to bed? Is he on meds? Did he get up at the usual time?

Hey…my husband doesn't have diabetes…I do. What I meant was that my blood sugar was 128 right after he told me about his dizziness. Could this reading be stress related, happening immediately following the news?

Stress can really bump your numbers up. I got into an argument with a friend and noticed a 20 point increase in my bg. Since then I have learned to chill out.
