Re: Diabetic Seizure help???

Sorry, I've never had a seizure (knock on wood) so I don't know. Have you thought about calling your dentist? He/she may be able to give some good advice. They're used to dealing with mouth sores.

Re: Diabetic Seizure help???

The tongue is very sensitive, and it may just take a while longer to heal. I would bet that it will start feeling a bit better by the time another week, or even less, has passed.

Meanwhile, it's important for you to figure out why you went so low that you had a seizure. You may not be recognizing the symptoms of low blood sugar...any time you feel at all odd, you need to test. Any blood sugar of 70 or less needs to be treated with 15g of carbohydrates. If you wait too long, your brain gets fuzzy (from lack of glucose to function), and you then can go extremely low without being able to treat yourself.

If you absolutely do not have any symptoms, then you might want to look into a continuous glucose monitor (CGM for short). The device tracks your blood glucose and you can tell trends, so you'll know when to treat.
