low blood sugar during sleep !!

A: Hi Mona, I don"t know if your husband is taking insulin or an oral agent. If he is taking insulin he could be subject to a very low blood sugar at night while sleeping.

The web site is www.sleepsentry.com. Tell them Jerry Munden told you to ask for more information and they will help you. Good luck, Jerry...

I have low blood sugar in morning after I eat breakfast just enough to bring my sugar up,I get very sleepy?

A: Sounds like you could be rebounding. Sleepy usually means my son has gone high. You are suppose to test before a meal then 2 hours later to see how it works with your treatment plan. My son had to change his bed time snack to increase his blood sugar for overnight. This is definitely a doctor question not a web question when you can get ill advice. Hmm i think people will usually get sleepy after meal. This is usually due to the certain signal that being sent to the brain. so i must say that after a meal esp. a heavy one its normal to feel sleepy. I experienced it myself too. But for your case, with low blood sugar. I m not very sure but thats all i can say about it....

low blood sugar or Diabetes?

A: diabetes... What is Diabetes Diabetes means that your blood glucose (often called blood sugar) is too high. Your blood always has some glucose in it because your body needs glucose for energy to keep you going. But too much glucose in the blood isn''t good for your health.

A: always havce a candy or chocolate in ur pocket. beware my friend low blood sugar is much more bad that high blood sugar and can lead to coma and in bad cases death. so have a high sugar meals.
