Re: [IP] rollercoaster levels and nausea

Susan - You're fine.  Anytime I have a dramatic low and then high (or vice
versa) I feel sick for a good day, especially when it happens overnight
(because there is added sleep deprivation on top of it all).  You feel this
way too because you are dehydrated.  When the blood sugar goes high, the
body gets dehydrated.  Drink lots of water and you should start feeling
better in a few hours.  Linda
