Any well controlled diabetics here had a liver dump while having a bg over 100? I am on no meds, last A1C 5.3, exercise regularly, and the other morning that is just what happened to me, and I don't know why.
I usually eat about 30g of carbs before my 1 hour long morning run, but that morning I ate close to 50g. That run for some reason turned out to be more exhausting than usual. My bg afterwards usually come to about 120, rarely over 140, but that day was 183! I initially thought that was the result of that extra 20g of carbs, but half an hour later it rose to 241! At that point I start to suspect it wasn't the carbs but a liver dump?! I began to eat (again), but I am chicken, because if I was wrong and it wasn't a liver dump, the next number on that meter will be 300! and I've been fooled before…10g of carb and half hour later, 138! (I literaly hold my breathe when it came out!) another 10g and half hour later, 114.
I was certain my bg before that liver dump was well over 100. My blood suger is often at 70s,80s, and 90s without ever triggering a liver dump. Why did my liver release more sugar into blood while there was more than enough already?
I have some ideas of what may have happened, but I would love to hear what the experts on this forum have to say…TIA
