I am having recurring dreams about having low blood sugar. When I wake up I actually have low blood sugar.
I have similar dreams. I have lost about 16 lbs this month maybe more when I weigh tmro. The interesting thing about this is I am type two that takes metformin, glipside and 60mg of insulin shots daily. About a month ago I woke from a dream that I was losing weight. I didn't realize it at the time however I have began eating basically one meal a day. And so far total I've lost about 21 lbs and still losing. If I do eat a snack l do not eat a large quantity. I don't understand this however I am thankful for these results. Is/was it because of the dreams? I don't know but I have never been able to control my appetite. I thank God for this however it happened.
Hi Communitymember2579! It’s very interesting how our brains work in ways we don’t expect. Congratulations on your weight loss. Did you find it difficult dropping to one meal a day? I’m curious, is it under the direction of your doctor? Please be sure your doctors know how you are losing weight so they can followup with any blood work that may be needed to ensure your other lab values stay in the healthy range for you. Again congratulations. Shelley, moderator.
Shelley and All....I didn't actively stop eating all but one meal a day. I just recently realized that is what I have been doing. I realized I was doing this after several nights of dreaming about food and dead relatives. During those days I was also having delirium and hallicinations which is not normal for me. Yes I keep close touch with my doctors. June the 8th my A1c was 5.6, and prior to that for about a year my a1c has stayed at 5.3 to 5.6. I hope I'm doing all the right things but know enough about myself how easy is for me to stop paying attention.
Maybe someone can help me learn not to continue that bad habit. Thank you for caring.
Oh my gosh! How scary! Who recognized there was something not ok with you that thanksgiving?! Hero that person was. Saved your life! Glipiside gone!! Yay you!! You are doing great listening to your body. Took me a long time to recognize what my body was telling me. (And sometimes I’m not a good listener to it. Lol.) I love my salads without the extras. I find the same with some foods I used to love, now they’re too heavy. Well you are doing great! Hopefully your ortho will have good referrals for you. Please keep me posted on how that appointment goes. Shelley, community moderator 🇨🇦
