LindaJoy Posted January 18, 2010 Report Share Posted January 18, 2010 Hi, everyone,Whenever I have a medical question that no one else seems to have an answer to, I come to all of you. I wonder if any of you have ever heard of this?I'm having severe problems with my blood glucose level controls right now. I'm severely glucose intolerant (CC endo said I'm the worse case he's ever seen--I don't feel special). I've been plummeting around 10:00 am each morning, two hours after eating and at the end of my hydrocortisone that I take at six (it's supposed to last four hours, peaking after two).I went down to 59 Friday and went into major symptoms, nearly passing out, leaving me exhausted the rest of the day. Just a bit ago, before supper (I eat six small meals a day, balancing carb, fat and protein and usually do well until lately), my sugar was 157. I ate my meal, and within an hour, my sugar had DROPPED to 105. I just took it again, two hours after eating, and it's down to 83. I read on some site that this sounds like an insulin surge right after eating, which makes sense to me, except that I've had several glucose studies over the past few years, and in each study, it was found that my glucose level goes well into the low 200's before my insulin kicks in (after about 3 hours or so), then does so in huge amounts since the glucose is so high, plummeting my sugar into the 40's. My one test two years ago showed that my glucose (lab result) was less than 2. No kidding.Has anyone heard of blood sugar dropping after a meal, not rising, and what the cause could be? Everything I've found on reputable internet sites all say that blood sugar only goes up after a meal. Well, mine doesn't sometimes, and I think it's just part of this glucose intolerance problem I'm having--a clue to maybe what's going on, that I'm hoping you all can help me figure out.Thanks. I hope this finds you all doing well today.Linda Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
