What is the normal rate for Blood Sugar to Drop after Meds?

What is the normal rate for Blood Sugar to Drop after Meds?

My question is this I take 3 anti diabetic drugs, two oral: Metformin and Glipized and one injection , Soliqua.
I have recently changed back to Glipized from Repaglinide(Prandin). I couldn't tolerate Repaglinide, I was sick as a dog while taking it and in combination with the other drugs always lowered sugars way too much.

Hi, I take 22m 3x a day before meals and 20ml of protaphane before sleep. I do skip the insulin at lunchtimes. My diet is about 70% ok. I cut out potatoes and had limited low GI bread and my sugar in morning normally about 14. I am at a diabetic clinic. Any info to help me. Thanks

Best wishes!… read more

Does anyone have a problem with blood sugars dropping fast (as in suddenly) ?

Does anyone have a problem with blood sugars dropping fast (as in suddenly) ?

My blood sugars are usually good, but occasionally (esp when I'm out of the house ) my blood sugar will drop in a matter of seconds to the point where I am extremely shaky and weak. I have taken to carrying a high protein granola bar everywhere and sometimes a juice pack (pure juice) also. Anyone else have this problem and what do they use to treat it ?

My Feet are so cold... almost painfully cold... is this from my T2Diabetes?

I have always been the type to walk around barefoot and lately (I am a newly diagnosed diabetic) I find my feet are so cold that I plug in a heating pad and wrap it around my feet just to warm them up...

Curious if anyone else is eexperiencing this?

They usually tell you not to walk barefoot, so maybe a light fitting sock or slippers.

How do you cope with people eating sweet treats in front of you?

How do you cope with people eating sweet treats in front of you?

I have just drastically reduced my consumption of sugary snacks due to starting on insulin. I honestly expected my partner would stop eating them in front of me but he hasnt.
