Have You Ever Been…

Family of huge, fat looking hippos…really full, but HAD to eat/drink something because your blood sugar is low?

What an uncomfortable feeling! Talk about looking for something with the most “bang for the buck”!

As strange as it sounds, even glucose tablets feel like they will be the calorie that makes the stomach explode. Is this what it’s like to have gastroparesis, where the insulin works faster than the food digests and affects the blood sugar?

In my case, tonight, I had been fighting some lows late in the afternoon and must have been crashing during dinner or something like that.
