This morning, yes I know that being low at 4am is not good, I awoke with a blood sugar of 70. I took one sip of apple juice aka a shot and had my breakfast which I covered with three units of insulin. The result was great, topped at 150 and came back down an hour later. For that low I tried a glass of apple juice and a granola bar, my blood sugar quickly took off to 250!!! What better way to over react than by taking three units of insulin and being low just before lunch!! I learned my lesson and avoided apple juice to fix the low and the results speak for themselves.
I don't know what has caused the recent spikes from apple juice but for the forseeable future I will be staying away from juice to fix a blood sugar that is between 60 and 70. Anything below 60 and a small amount will be needed, I need to get off of the blood sugar roller coaster and getting rid of juice may be the answer.
