When the Warning Signs Fade ( Diabetes )

When the Warning Signs Fade ( Diabetes )

Many people who have had diabetes for more than five years may not feel the warning signs of low blood glucose. The usual feelings of hunger, sweatiness, anxiety, and increased heart rate may fade and escape your attention. Sometimes you may just feel sleepy as your blood glucose drops. The reasons for this are complex but are related to a loss of adrenaline release in your body when your blood glucose is low. If you are unaware of low blood glucoses, try not to let your blood glucose level drop below 100 mg/dl. You may need to monitor your levels more often. If this is a problem for you, always check your blood glucose level before you drive.
