My Blood Sugar Is Low
Why do I not feel when my blood sugar is low I fuction at 35 just as I would 90 and is there anything I can do ?
Have less lows: I assume u have diabetes & r on meds. When patients have frequent low sugars, they stop getting warning signs - palpitations, sweating, tremors- &don't have symptoms until their sugar is dangerously low, then get confused and pass out. By letting the sugars run a little high for a while, the hypoglycemic awareness comes back. Also consider a continuous glucose sensor. Make sure ur meter is right. ...Read more

I am in my twenties and slim-built. Should I eat late at night if I feel like my blood sugar is low?

Not sure what you are taking, but it is likely keeping your sugar lower. I would suggest follow up with doc to discuss it. Good luck. ...Read more

I notice you didn't put down diabetes as a condition. Are you not eating properly? I doubt your shakiness is due to any neuropathy. You asked the other day about telling between shaking from muscle weakness in the legs vs. neuropathy as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm throwing up and diabetic my blood sugar is low, but I can't keep anything down. No juice or food I just throw it back up, my blood sugar is 45 help ?
Couple thoughts: In the case of blood sugar always being low lab testing needs to be done to rule out insulinoma. The most common cause of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) however is, contrary to what one might expect, eating sugar. A sugar spike leads to an insulin spike (insulin takes sugar out of bloodstream and into cells) which often "overshoots" leading to low blood sugar. Also watch diet soda and coffee ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
