Thanks for asking dLife.

Bravo! Great improvements in blood glucose (sugar) and lipids. Your hard work is paying off!

Your blood glucose dropped rapidly within a short period of time. Initially, a change in glucose may result in some uncomfortable symptoms. Over time your body will become better adjusted to a new and much safer glucose level. And, the symptoms will go away. Hang in there! Your patience will be rewarded.

Continue with your meal and exercise plan. Also regularly monitor your blood glucose and take your blood glucose log to your next medical visit. This information will help your doctor to review your diabetes treatment plan and determine how best to adjust your diabetes medicines.

Take care.

The same thing happened to me and my doctor told me that I felt weird because my body had become accustom to the highs I had pre-diagnosis and the my body would also become accustom to the proper blood glucose levels,but, to watch for lows as this is possibly how you would feel if glucose got to low. Another possibility is you are anemic, which after checking he found in me.
