Personality Changes with High Blood Sugar

Posted on December 3, 2012 at 2:34pm 7 Comments

Hi there-- Does anyone else feel as though only other diabetics understand how awful and different you feel when you have a high blood sugar? I become much more irritable, sensitive, etc. Sometimes I feel as though people think I am making excuses for myself, but I am normally a very happy-go-lucky woman. It's so frustrating.

"oh geeze... yes happens all the time, I get super sensitive when low, panic stricken, anxiety when low and cranky, impatient and just down right miserable when I am high. Likely why I am still single..... lol"

"If I can add a suggestion to Teena's post, be transparent about this with those that are close to you. Sometimes my family recognizes that a problem is developing before I do because I am acting out of my normal curmudgeonly zone. My father was…"
