Blood sugar around 80?

Ok so I had gesttional diabetes with my son almost three years ago. I haven't had any problems since. Admittedly I don't eat the best. (either too much or not enough) A few weeks ago I started feeling shaky, sweaty, clammy, nauseated, dizzy. I used to get like this when I was little and didn't eat for a while. My Mom would give me a spoon of peanut butter and I'd feel better. Well of course I couldn't test my sugar then but because I still have my meter from when I was pregnant I can now! The first time it happened recently my sugar was 80. Well today I was running around getting things done before our upcoming vacation and I ran through a wendy's and got a chicken sandwich, fries and diet soda. That really all I ate all day. This evening I started feeling lousy again and I checked my sugar and it was 83. I didn't think 80 or 83 would make you feel THAT bad. I thought that was within "normal" fasting range. Right after I had my son I felt like that but my sugar was only 50!! Why is it that 80 is making me feel so crappy??

Maybe it's not your blood sugar that's causing the problem.

Re: Blood sugar around 80?

I know exactly how you feel. I've been diagnosed with prediabetes though, so for me I spike and then I dip down low. But never any lower than 75. But right around 80 I start to feel like crud- and want to bite off anyone's head that comes in my way. Then I eat a bit and feel better. I'm thinking it's the fast decline not so much the ultimate blood sugar value that causes me to feel this way.
