Lowering BS make you dizzy?

BS been running high for months. H1C was 8.4 yesterday. Doctor put me on new medicine. Insulin injection with fast action and slow acting insulin. Fasting this morning was 290. Did injection and ate breakfast. Two hours later was down to 241. Began to feel a slight "high". Ate cherries and 1/2 peanut butter sandwich. Began feeling really dizzy. Lightheaded and strange. Took BS to see if something happen. It was 225. My BS has been high for many months now. Do you get dizzy and feel strange as it lowers? What should I expect if this finally is the meds to help me?

Re: Lowering BS make you dizzy?

It's not surprising that you are feeling like your BG is low even though you are in the 200s. Because you have been running in the 200s for so long, your body has acclimated itself and now feels like this is a normal range. THis means that your body is feeling like anything lower than that is too low and you start to feel hypoglycemic. DOn't worry though, this effect will wear off as your numbers get down to the 100s for a more extended period of time. I'm not sure what to tell you as far as treating the hypo feelings since the aim IS to get your BG lower, but be mindful of how you feel since it isn't impossible to have the regular effects of hypoglycemia at higher numbers if you have been high for some time, ie. seizures. I'd speak to your endo about whether they feel you should treat the symptoms or not, or whether they would rather you wait it out for a while. Good luck and feel better.
