When my sugar gets down below 190 or in my target area. I get dizzy, light headed, sick to my stomach, and worn down. I am taking Janumet 50/1000 and it gives me a horrible stomach cramps and uncontrollable bowel issues. I am also new to the Grand Rapids Mi area and am looking for a new doctor. My son goes to Devos children's I guess I could ask them. Huh just typing my question I am answering my own questions. Any Ideas??

My brother is the same way, but his sugar is 300. he refuses to go to the doctor, for meds, eventhough we have a family history of diabetes & my dad was on dialysis & my mom just lost kidney functions.

However, I have chronic pain & one doctor described that sometime getting healthier makes you feel worse for a while. he discribed it like this.

If you have a clenched fist and kept it that way for a week. the hand believes the clenched position is "normal". now you go to open the hand and eventhough the open position is the "correct normal". It's painful so our tendency is to go back

what 's up with the infomercials. When they post, isn't once enough. That's my gripe now as to your post my friend I too as many other had this same problem my bgs had run high for so long that anything that remotely resembled a lower bg caused all of the above sysptoms. now as my bgs are more regulated it is much better. I still have my dqays where my bgs are not so good but on average it is much better. you should get you a new doc as soon as u can and talk to them about it this may be your only problem but it might not be either, better safe than sorry later.
wish you best of luck

If your bg has been high for a long time, its understandable that as you bring it down you body will think you are low.
Are you updating a Dr. with what is happening to you?
Rx and food intake will need to be adjusted as you stabilize.

You may be developing insulin resistence in your cells which can lead to what is known as diabetic cell starvation, talk to your doctor about insulin resistence in your cells.
Which can make you tired, dizzy and sleepy.
Talk to your doctor about your condition and let him\her analize you and come up with a solution for your symptoms.

Your blood sugar has been high, I assume, and you have worked your way down to 190. To YOUR body, that feels like low blood sugar. As you work your way down below that, you may get other times you feel that way. Alway check your BS when you feel that way. And when you find a doctor, tell him your symptoms and ask for a different medication.
