    I woke up low 50 had around 5 grams of carbs which brought me up to roughly 70 Felt fine Then took my injection for breakfast which was bacon eggs and half a bagel approx 30 grams within 15 min I could feel the start of the avalanche which started with pressure in my hands and head then the irritability set in and dehydration to follow It was pretty clear the sugar shot up I tested it roughly 1 5 hr post meal and two hours post injection and sure enough 175 Now interestingly if I had been in a severe low and paramedics had to revive me by boosting the sugar over 200 through IV I would have not had any of the symptoms I got from the food Also on occastion I have tested an elevated level and didn t notice any usual symptoms I get A weeks back specifically a 166 I get at least a dozen different symptoms but sometimes higher doesn t mean worse In fact sometimes a higher level could mean less bothersome symptoms the a slightly elevated To me its the normal fasting sugars in the morning with symptoms are the ones I

    dietary antigens apparently common in a subset of T1s and those with autoimmunity or a immunological reaction to the insulin itself Either insulin antibodies or to preservatives in the insulin I ve mentioned twice now you should definitely try switching back to the older insulins Animal insulin Try it I would also cut out the grains processed foods Not due to CHO content but rather immune stimulation If the bacon is nitrate free and the eggs free range ok Definitely no bagels and other such crap What most T1s are told is a healthy diet is not even close A lot of T1s are NEVER going to properly manage if they eat the crap they think is ok I have a very hyper responsive immune system autoimmunity anaphylaxis food protein induced autoimmunity etc and cannot tolerate Lantus insulin The few times I went off the pump and had to inject basal insulin I had severe tachycardia fever dizziness and numerous other unexpected symptoms As soon as the insulin metabolized and I went back on pump I was fine This occurred with a normal and relatively stable BG I reported my reaction to Health Canada after calling the manufactuer to see

    teens I noticed large dips almost like pockets in my legs where I used to inject Once they switched me to the human crap my endo at the time told me the musle should rebuild with the new insulin Sure enough it did I can t even imagine how nasty it would look today if I were still on it Generally once I conclude I am high I use insulin imediately If specifically I wasn t feeling horrible while high I generally feel worse as the sugar is lowering and the opisite happens when I feel horrible while high I generally won t eat any carbs knowingly while I am elevated I usually take the insulin and wait to I start feeling low before I eat which usually gives me the best results The IV thing is mind boggling to me I still conclude that my body is still in shock from the severe low and for the most part don t experience the common symptoms I get from other highs I have been told to seek a integrative medicine doc by a mutual friend who is actually an no longer practicing ER doctor He mentioned they generally dig deeper

    with glucose fluctuations Have you tried downing some oral salt Gatorade I guess would have to be sugar free in your case etc when you fluctuate No idea if this would help but like you say nothing to lose I m assuming your kidney function is normal and since only about 20 of the population is salt sensitive I can t see any issues with you trying this approach Follow

    you are hydrated with an IV that even at levels over 200 you don t get the symptoms Maybe you are not getting enough fluids throughout the day It s hard to drink enough when you re working Maybe you should try drinking lots of water and see if that helps Also you should consider a gluten free diet This helps a lot of people even if you don t

    symptoms that come into play When elevated there are clear physical symptoms pressure in hands and head temperature can feel off hunger buzziness mild dehydration but also severe mood swings aka angry irritable depressed things don t look right It s sometimes hard to tell if there were no physical symptoms if I would still be an emotional wreck Usually when I am trending low its rarely physical but more so emotional Some symptoms are crossed Generally when I am low even in the 50 s unless I still have onboard insulin I can generally feel much better in minutes where as high it can last quite long On occasion if I am high and not feeling terrible I will feel worse on the downslope Remember high for me really isn t even high I honestly believe if there was a way to clamp my sugar between 70 and 80 I would likely be healed for the most part The harsh reality is this shouldn t be happening at least from a medical standpoint Everyone I ve spoken to about this is stunned I feel like I have the most complicated debilitating medical problem in existence that essentially shouldn t
