Let's talk blood sugar

I'm a non diabetic, but I have noticed over the past few months or so that my blood sugar seems drop quite a bit in the afternoons. A family member suggested that I pick up one of those self testing meters and keep a track on my blood sugar when I feel like it's dropping low.

For example I was feeling a bit shaky and anxious earlier and it had dropped to 70. (That's the lowest number I've ever had it read). I drank some 100% fruit juice I keep in the fridge at work, tested it again 15 minutes later, and it was up over 100.

Is this a normal thing that I'm putting too much thought into, or should I speak to my doctor about it? I tend to be on the more anxious side, and I notice even very subtle changes in my body.

For the record I had labs done about a month ago and everything was normal.

Thanks for any and all input.

Luckily, I had some glucose tablets in my desk and was able to get my sugar up to normal quickly. I've not gone that low since. I'd not been a diagnosed all that long at that point and I was still learning how to manage diet and meds, etc. I've not had a severe low like that since.

30 years and I never ****ed up that bad could always guzzle some oj to fend it off. The best piece of advice I got from my now retired dr was "you will have bad days just don't wallow in self pity and let a bad day turn into a bad week into a bad month..."

Also, I think taking insulin is a major setback, I never want to. Taking insulin increase insulin resistance. Taking more insulin to treat type 2 diabetes, a disease of too much insulin resistance, is treating the symptom and not the cause.

To this day, I have no idea how, or why I went that low. It was a freak occurrence. Now, I take Jentadueto instead of metformin, try to eat right, and have been doing pretty well.

Unfortunately, people with T2DM experience gradual failure of their pancreatic beta cells. Eventually, most will need insulin because of that failure.

Stupid question, cannot all diabetes be controlled by diet alone ?

You can buy a cheap test meter at any Wal-Mart/pharmacy. You'll have to get the test strips separate. Likely lancets too. Cost me about $30 total

A blood draw in lab for a1c. If your doc sees that its above 6 approaching 7 he might order a glucose tolerance test to see if your pre diabetes

You can buy a glucose monitor and test strips along with a lance and lancets. Those monitor blood glucose in real time.
