Dear Gatorman,
You asked whether one can get snappy and angry after going too long without eating. In my view the answer is "yes" it is possible to become snappy after going too long without eating. I suspect it can be due to surges of various hormones in response to falling blood sugar levels.

What makes you ask?

I generally have a strawberry and banana smoothie for breakfast. It also has strawberry yogurt, oj and cranberry juice. This has really helped me to lose weight. In fact I have lost 20 lbs in 2 months. I really don't have much trouble with my sugar. Only occasionally do I have to take my medication, of course I don't really eat a lot anyway or regularly. Taking medication will send my sugar way down to where i get the shakes. I don't have the energy to get snappy.

Doc prescribed Glip/Metform 5/500 that's generic for metaglip. My sugar runs a little high...around 170. I had a 297 on my labs one day but I had just finished having a cappucino, even though I told the doc that but he still insisted on the script. Of course he's a PA and while I know some of them are good and he did help me with anotherprob I guess at least I do have the med if I need it. Are there certain symptoms for high BS to watch for?

Happy New Year All!

Goodness gracious Asuage02, IMO sugars of 170 to 297 are certainly symptoms of high BS. I think you need to do what you doctor says and take your medicine to begin with. Other symptoms of high BS are heart attack, brain and nerve damage, strokes, and amputation to name a few. Get serious about all of this soon!
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
