Question Type 2 Diabetic with 2 separate questions

Hello everyone - I have a couple of questions for you.

I have been out of control with blood sugars for a very long time. I recently started Tradjenta (1 week ago) and upped my Lantus to 60 units, per doc's orders. Two days ago, I also started eating well for the first time since I was diagnosed. Prior to this my fastings have been between 180 and 220 and 2-hour postprandials around 240-200. For the past two days, my fastings have been 100-110 and 2 hour postprandials 120!!! Great, huh? Here's my question: Has anyone else ever felt kind of low energy, blah, and a little shaky when your blood sugars go back to normal? That has happened to me before when I have transient periods of eating correctly. So that's the first question.

The other is that I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience to this: Last October, on three separate occasions, I had "episodes" of nausea, drenching sweats, and dry heaving that lasted about 30 minutes. All awakened me out of sleep. Doc couldn't find anything wrong. Tested my heart. I have had 2 episodes of the same over the last 3 weeks, and my new doctor found that I have elevated lipase but normal amylase (pancreas enzymes). I don't have abdominal pain like you would with gallbladder disease or pancreatitis, but he is still thinking it may be pancreatitis due to my high triglyceride level (900). When these episodes happen, they're pretty scary, so I'm curious if anyone else here has had them, and if so, what did you ever find out was the cause?

Thanks!
Jayson

Re: Type 2 Diabetic with 2 separate questions

You will definitely feel "low" at normal blood sugars after an extended period of time of running high. That is normal and will go away in a while. Just stick with doing things properly and you will feel fine in no time. As to the other issue, sorry, but I don't know about that.

Thank you, Cora. I appreciate your input. I can't believe the difference in just 2 days.

Re: Type 2 Diabetic with 2 separate questions

Jayson,

This is encouraging to me. I have a close friend with Type 2 diabetes. They are trying to make adjustments in their diet to limit the amount of medication they have to take. It's hard to stay consistent though.

Every little bit helps I guess.
