I get cold with lows below 75 and warm above 130 or so. As I get back into my comfort range (80-120) I feel just right. I used to shiver with cold at less than 50 and feel very hot and have to remove most of my clothing if over 180. With my pump and CGM it is rare for me to be below 60 or above 160, so I don't have much trouble with this now.

I have searched several of my "go to" resources on diabetes and none of them address this issue. I am very curious myself to find out the information. I will keep looking. They say all kinds of things about heat, and getting over heated, but nothing about a drop in body tepms.

if you happen to find out anything please let me know , today a friend of my daughters said her dr said its cause the body goes into ashock stage like and your system shuts its self down then when your body start to get the sugar back in its system the temp raises too quickly causing you to shake and shiver i dont know how true this is but thats what she told my daughter .

That seems to make sense to me, but I just couldn't find anything to back up my thoughts. It is interesting to know that could be the cause. Our bodies do a lot of things very quickly when we are out of balance. That is why lows will make us sweat and shake. Out bodies tell us so much, but we don't listen. As you come up, just keep warm and let your body talk to you about what it needs.

there is only a few things that help raise my sugar too, i cant drink milk i break out and get the runs from it, sugar and water goes straight through me , orange is ok as long as i dont drink too much of it, pb and jelly takes a while to work but it works,those tablets dsont even touch it ,so if i drop when i sleep and my family grabs sugar and water or milk i am in the bathroom for a good 1/2 hour werid huh ?

Can you do the gels instead of the tablets? If you do the jelly without the peanut butter. Maybe try some soy milk? I am not sure there enough carbs to raise your levels though.
