This evening I decided to look at some side effects of low blood sugar. What I found has me scared to be low. I found a lot of information about brain fog. Brain fog is primarily characterized by a general feeling of clouded vision and lack of clarity of thought.
Symptoms include: Forgetfulness or loss of short-term memory.
Decreased or poor attention span.
The lack of spatial awareness.
Lack of concentration and focus at any task.
Depression and anxiety.
Clouded thought process, where one may feel the inability to think clearly.
I honestly thought that what I was feeling during lows was unique to my body. I was wrong, so that brings me back to the drawing board. I want an A1C below 6.5 all the time but being low a lot is not something I want. I believe I have very tight control over my blood sugar but I believe I need to not be worried so much about going above 150, I would much rather be 160 then 60. Just when I thought I had everything figured out I find that I need to tweak somethings. That is a bit annoying but it is a new challenge and I have never been one to back down from any challenge. I say bring it on!!!
