A: Dear mlazaron@rochester.rr.com,Your low blood sugars at 3 pm daily could be caused by you not eating enough carbohydrates at lunch. They could be caused by the timing of your exercise.

I''m not a diabetic but I get low blood sugar, could it be related with diovan 80 mg?

A: 27 Dec 2011 I wouldn''t think so unless you are not eating at all while taking medications. The best thing you can do is have something to eat when this occurs to bring your sugar level up to a more normal range. If this continues, you should talk with your MD to do a glucose 5 hour tolerance test, but I really think you are ok. Take extra zinc & vitamin B6 to help with the healing of that knee so you can start getting the proper exercise & nutrition & you should be fine. Just my thoughts...

When you are sleeping and get a low blood sugar, are you most likely to wake up or sleep through it?

A: My body wakes me up. I know immediately what the problem is. Eat a snack before going to bed. Something like graham crackers with a little peanut butter. That''s what my nutritionist had me do and now I don''t have the problem anymore. Also, check with your doctor to see if your meds need adjusted. You will wake-up, you will be able to feel it. My brother usually wakes up. But he has plenty of time to go downstairs and get a glass of juice. If you are concerned, keep sugar close by, so if it does happen, you can be ready. You are most likely to sleep right through it. Keep a small can of orange juice or something similar near the bed so you just roll over to take of your condition. orange juice is absorbed quickly. Best Wishes I wake up. I can''t go back to sleep...
