First time posting, I was recently diagnosed this year. I am still learning how Diabetes work and the symptoms. My sugar is always in the mid 200, today it dropped within 3 hours. I feel so bad, is this normal, I haven’t had anything to drink it eat in between the readings. What can I do, I know I am in a better number but my head is killing me.

What are you T1 or T2?
I was in this same position last year. Its only because you’re not use to being normal. Yes it feels so weird, and like you’re low… but it’s ok. If ypu can work through this, and tell yourself it’s ok, then after about a week you get use to it. Then the good news is over your”normal” again being high will alert your body
Take some painkillers if needed and rest. You’re body is just so used to being high that any changes are going to feel weird at first while your body adjusts to being more normal again
You will feel like crap as.your sugars begin to be more controlled…it’s part of the process. But…you need to drink water! Take your body’s weight and divide that in half. That is how many ounces of water you need to drink just to keep you from dehydration. And if you exercise or spend time in the heat…you need to add 16oz for every 2 hours in the heat. It is so easy for us in the beginning (T2) to freak out and be overly cautious about every piece of food or drink that we injest. So take a deep breath! Note…you will get a ton of comments and advice on here…like mine! That said WE ARE NOT MEDICALLY TRAINED OR QUALIFIED TO GIVE YOU TREATMENT ADVICE!!! Everything we say is from our own experiences and while some of us really invest time into researching how to manage our diabetes…the only thing we have in common is diabetes! From there…each of us process food according to how our bodies work and my diabetes (T2) is unique to me just as yours is unique to you. Don’t be discouraged…this is a shit disease and stresses our minds, emotions, and bodies. Being aware of that is vital to the management of this disease. Hang in there…it’s a learning process.

That is normal. Even though you not officially “low” your body reacts to the lower number. It will get better with time.
Congrats on breaking into the 100s. Since your body isn’t used to the lower number, it will react like that — once you’re in the 100s for a while you won’t have that feeling
Drink a smart water.. or other water with electrolytes. Your body will get use to it.
Echoing what everyone else has said. Hang in there! As your body gets used to lower (more normal) blood sugars, you will feel better. Do drink lots of water. Do your research on diet and exercise. I do low carb. Many people swear by keto. You need to figure out what works best for you, because everyone is different. Life will get better. Be patient with yourself and stubborn enough to do what you need to.

Your sugar drops to fast makes you sick it alittle bit and you will feel better
Your body gets used to your blood sugar being higher so when you finally start correcting it a normal and healthier number will make you feel like you are having a low blood sugar attack. I experienced this when I first started taking meds. My bg was running in the upper 200-300’s. Once my blood sugar dropped down into the upper 100’s I would feel like I was having hypoglycemia. It took a week or so for my body to get used to my new number.
My successful Diabetes Treatment Story
My doctor diagnosed me with diabetes just over a year ago, at the time I was prescribed Metformin. I went to the some diabetes related websites and learned about the diet they suggested. I started the diet right away and I was very loyal to it. However, after weeks of being on the diet it never helped, my blood sugar didn’t drop like I wanted it to. My personal physician wasn’t much help either, he didn’t really seem to give me any other options besides my prescription and the usual course of insulin. I was about to give up and then I discovered a great treatment method. The guide was authored by one of the leading professionals in the world of diabetes research, Dr. Max Sidorov. This is a guide that that shows you, in a very simple way, how to conquer the disease without traditional methods. I have to say that since I’ve found the guide and followed it, I’ve not only improved my health but I’ve also lost weight and improved other aspects as well. My activities have increased and I have a ton of energy! It is my goal to share the this diabetes treatment method as much as possible to show people there’s more to the disease than traditional schools of thought and you can find your own path to healing with natural methods.
