Has anyone had this (its happened to me twice; once last year, and then again last night) ?
i start going low, so i correct with carbs. very briefly my BG comes up, but then it goes down again. so i treat with some more carbs. my BG goes back into target. But then, within minutes, i crash again.
this goes on all night. i continue feeding the crashes, trying desperately to stay in target or at least as close to it as i can get. afraid to fall asleep when my BG is under 60. but eventually, i am so exhausted, i basically pass out.
well at 2:30, my overnight alarm goes off, so i get out of bed to do a finger stick. my BG is now 300!!! i did an IM shot of 3 units, and went back to bed.but at 6:30, i woke up again and did another finger stick; my BG was 219, so i did another IM correction. eventually, my BG got back into range. but this was a real roller coaster, and i am whipped.
has this happened to any of you? and if so, how have you handled the situation? i dont know why it happened. i didnt do anything out of the ordinary. the only thing i can think of is that the antibiotic that i am taking is having this effect on my BG. other than that, ???
