"When my BG gets over about 175, I start getting sleepy. Also, I started having problems with my eyes drying. I notice this is worse when my BG is high."

"I find at 240 I get nauseous at 299 I get real sleepy and any higher I start sweating and get very hot and may get confused just like low bs. But I usually test at the first sign of nausea. Always check before and after meals as directed but look…"

Yvonne replied to Chris's discussion 'Highs, how can you tell.' in the group Type 2
"Wooh. That is low. I've been told 160 two hours after eating is fine--even 180 does not upset my endo. The biggest problem with going high is that your blood sugar may drop suddenly and then you have a real problem. Carry some hard candy mints…"

Laura Anne Kilpatrick replied to Chris's discussion 'Highs, how can you tell.' in the group Type 2
"Other than testing with your meter or using a CGM (continuous glucose monitor) it is hard to tell. An hour after eating should be at 140 and 2 hours at 120. Unless you go much higher you won't know. Sometimes a person will feel tired or sleepy…"

Chris replied to Chris's discussion 'Highs, how can you tell.' in the group Type 2

hi Chris, I don't know if much is happening in this Group, but you might want to join it

http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/freestuff

I've heard that Victoza is expensive. oh, and your doctor should have done an a1c test on you already. It's kinda like an average of your blood sugars over the past three months. Except the numbers are much smaller than bg numbers. I think they want us to have a1c's less than 7.0. What have your bg numbers been? I'm type 1, so it's hard for me to stay in range, but I try to shoot for under 140. 80-120 are really good numbers.
