Q:

Q: 

hypoglycemia and low blood sugar levels

A: The symptoms you reported (shaking and sweating at same time) are not specific enough for a definitive diagnosis to be given. They might be unrelated to each other which additionally complicates things and expands the range of diagnostic procedures that have to be performed. However, if the shaking and sweating always happen together, they might be related to low blood sugar. This condition is known as hypoglycemia. At your age, the most common cause for hypoglycemia is inappropriate diet. You are in a process of growing and your body needs more energy from food (meaning calories). Because the carbohydrates are the fastest providers of energy, not taking enough carbohydrates or not taking them on time might cause...


Q: 

I takw Lanuts SoloStar insulin 100units/(U-100) at bedtime 10pm, I take 40 units, at 2am, I expeperience low blood sugar levels between 40-60.

I am not sure why you take it again at 2 am - taking it that close together may be cause of the low blood sugars (but you don''t say what time of the day they are occuring). If you are having frequent lows you need to keep good records and talk to your primary care provider about changing your dosage. lows should be treated w/ 15 gms of fast acting carbs and reck in...
