Diabetes Type 2 Question
An_248619 posted:
I'm confused today. My BG has been in the 80's three times and i've taken glucose tablets and drank some coke. Generally my counts are 95 - 120 does stress or having a cold effect these counts I'm trying to decide if i need to see my doctor but, if normal don't want to bother her. Any thoughts out there? thank you

Glucose levels in the 80s are perfectly normal and shouldn't require treatment as a "low". You may feel low if your body is not used to levels in the 80s, but that's just a reaction to the more normal numbers. Sometimes eating a sugar-free mint can help with the feeling.
