Feeling Strange

I am on Onglyza for T2, and through diet and exercise along with this my fasting blood sugar is now down to 95 to 120. I seem to feel really woozy or strange though if my blood sugar is less than 100. Is this normal? I had a really bad headache and my hands were shaking when my blood sugar tested at 101. After I ate something I did feel a little better. Thanks for any comments you can give me!

Re: Feeling Strange

I have heard that for those of us that are newly diagnosed with Diabetes, when we get our blood sugar down to somewhere near normal, sometimes we might feel lightheaded, or have headaches.

I have experienced this a few times.

I am no expert, just sharing what I heard.

Re: Feeling Strange

Sometimes when you've been running higher, once you run more normally, you body mistakes this for a "low" and you feel bad. This goes away with normal glucose levels in a week or so. Try not to worry.

mim,

Did your Dr. put you on JUST ONGLYZA? I am no expert, but I am pretty sure that Onglyza and Januvia are good secondary drugs to treat D2.

Metformin or Metformin ER is usually the first line drug for D2.

Metformin has been around for years with a great track record, and it has other benefits as well.

Research the benefits of Metformin.

Re: Feeling Strange

Hi, and thanks for responding. Oddly enough, I wrote this post in June and tonight I had the same experience when it hit 90. I am just on Onglyza for it right now. I feel ok if it is above 100, but once it gets to the low 90's my hands shake and I feel really weak. I had to eat 2 mini meals to get a bs reading above 120 at the hour and 2 hour readings. I spaced them apart so close to see if it would go up much. I go for my 6 month A1C testing in a couple of weeks, so it will be interesting to see what my blood is really up to between testings.
