[IP] Side effects of increased control?
After years and years of having little deliberate control (my HgA1c was
usually around 8.7), I recently started to exercise, watch my diet and
manage my pump more effectively. For the last week my bg's have been
averaging about 90-100 mg/dl.
I am finding that I am having headaches, blurry vision, minor aches and
pains in my feet and both of my little fingers keep going cold and
numb-ish. The headaches and vision changes I can understand, but the rest?
Has anyone experienced weird symptoms when your blood sugars approach
normal levels? I figure there must be some adjustments neccessary. Is
this normal and will it go away?
I have had no complications, so far, and if this is some sort of sick irony
- I finally get it together in time to start falling apart - I am going to
be very annoyed! ;')
