Okay Type 1s, let me hope one of you can relate to this!
For at least a month, maybe three, I've been very tired and out-of-it. It feels like a low-sugar attack but my sugars are normal to high. My brain doesn't focus, I feel out of balance, and very lethargic.
I'm on Humalog on the pump, have just gotten back on my vitamins but they aren't making a difference yet, and am eating and exercising pretty healthily. I do want to eat all the time, which is typical of having low sugars and going into survival mode to get them up. But my sugars are not low! Only other health problem is being diagnosed with Celiac Disease in November. It's been easy to cut wheat, barley and rye gluten out of my life, and I've started to gain weight now that my guts are starting to heal, so don't feel that is the problem.
The only thing I can relate to this is when I was on Lantus and then Levamir a few years ago, and they gave me similar symptoms. 24-hours after stopping those insulins I felt amazing. But I've been on Humalog for years. Wish I had some old beef or pork insulin to try just to see!
Anyone else ever experienced this? I would really like my energy and mental sharpness back!
