Feeling Really Odd

Last updated: August 2022

I’m type 2 and was diagnosed probably 12 years ago. I never watched my diet and ate and did whatever I want to do. Anyway, my A1C in January was 9.1. I immediately became aware I needed to start eating right etc. I’m also about 70 lbs overweight and getting ready to turn 64.

What I wanted to ask is about several episodes where I felt very weird, nauseated, and need to empty my bowels. A very sick feeling like I was dying, but no actual pain. It lasts about an hour and after I sleep for a little while I’m ok. When this happens my bg is usually 200-225. The thing is I haven’t eaten or drank anything. I’m wondering if anyone else has these episodes and if they know the causes etc. Thanks for listening.
