I am a T2 on Metformin and Lipitor. A1C average for last 2 years 5.8
This has only happened to me 2 or 3 times.
I was out to dinner, had taking my Metformin an hour before hand.
Had dinner, small prawn appetizer, main fish with some lemon mash, and yes had a cream brulee (so sugar here)
Had 4 glasses of red wine with dinner (over about 4 hours). Suddenly felt dizzy, went outside (Summer here in NZ) and suddenly broke out in a sweet, my whole body was drenched, like I was in a heavy shower of rain).
A really nice waitress and a friend came to my assistance. I was on the point of passing out, just aware of my surroundings. (Sounds like I was drunk, but certainly was not).
My friend rang his wife who was a nurse, she advised to give me sugar. Waitress supplied a laged bottle of cranberry juice. Hey presto i was back to normal in abut 10 minutes.
Scary experience, this has happen before (no alcohol at all in previous cases)
