do diabetics get headaches

A: How do you know ants are attracted to your urine? Do you pee on anthills?

Q: Have you ignored a hypo before? (T1 diabetics only plz)?
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this before. I have done this several times. I have ignored my hypo/low before and haven’t treated it. Nothing happens, I don’t pass out or go into a coma. I feel weird and get all shaky but during and after it sometimes I get a killer headache. But I can still do work and school because I was doing a test once and the other night I was at work. So what’s the deal? I have heard of peoples livers kicking in when their asleep so is this the same?

A: Ignoring a hypo is extremely risky. Please do not ignore them – treat them – they can kill you.

The problem is that you cannot ever know when your blood sugar will go low enough to cause you to pass out. When that happens, you may be in a place or situation where it is very dangerous to lose consciousness.

The more often you allow yourself to get very low, the less sensitive you become. Eventually, this will end up so low that you will end up in the hospital – if you are lucky.

Do not rely on your liver to release glucose – the reserve of glycogen in a person’s liver depends on a lot of different factors, and there may not be enough to counteract the effects of a recent dose of insulin.

Q: Hypoglycemia (*not diabetic*) and Drinking Alcohol?
Hello All,
I am hypoglycemic and I would like to know how I can still drink alcohol. I’m not talking about getting drunk, but I would like to enjoy a couple drinks at dinner or out with my friends without getting a headache and tremors!!! I am 25 years old and 130 lbs. Also, please note that I am hypoglycemic and NOT diabetic!

I have been hypoglycemic since I was 14 and I manage it with diet and blood-sugar testing. My body can tolerate 2 drinks on a full stomach, and even then I often get a headache and become ill.

Many times I will have 2 drinks, I won’t even be near drunk, I will feel fine, I will drink water before I go to bed, and then the next morning I will have a headche and puke. I usually puke yellow bile for about 3 hours until I feel normal again. (I’m sorry, I know it’s gross!) Many times I will puke before I go to sleep, and I will still feel the same amount sick in the morning and still vomit up bile. And this with only 2 drinks in me! For these reasons I rarely drink.

Not drinking has never really bothered me until last week when I was at my friends’ engagement party. I had 1 glass of champagne, tons of hor d’ouvres, and a huge 5-course italian meal with a glass of wine. All of this was consumed in about 3-4 hours, so it’s not like I ate or drank quickly, and I still had a terrible headache with tremors by the time I got home. I just felt terrible that I can’t enjoy meals and celebrations the way other people do. I really envy people who can drink. I don’t understand why I can’t even have a couple of drinks when I eat so much.

I have tried many remedies such as eating alot while I drink, which helps some, but most of the time I still get headaches. There has only been 1 time in my LIFE when I drank alot of alcohol and had no other symptoms. I will tell you the story. It was about 4 years ago and I was going to a concert with some friends. For dinner I ate a sub, then at a bar I had 2 shots of vokda-red-bull and 1 beer. (My friends know about my condition, and I myself was expecting that I would get sick at some point.) Then at the concert I had about 4 more beers. This totaled about 7 drinks over 5 hours, and I was somewhat drunk. Then we ate at Waffle House and I had a fried-egg sandwich and hash-browns with extra cheese. We were still expecting me to be sick, but it never happened. Even the next morning, I felt 100% normal with no hangover. This was the most surprising part, since my hangovers usually consist of killer headaches and puking bile for at least 3 hours in the morning. I don’t know why I never got sick. I have since tried to replicate this scenario by eating a full meal after a night of drinking, but it has not worked since.

I’m sorry this post is so long! Like I said in the beginning, I am not trying to get “drunk,” I would just like to figure out how to enjoy a couple drinks with dinner or something without getting a headache. My main questions are:

1- Are some alcoholic beverages better tolerated than others for hypoglycemics?
2- What exactly do you eat before and after you drink alcohol?
3- I have heard that taking an activated charcoal supplement will help with the symptoms, but I haven’t tried them. Has anyone heard of this or tried this?
4- Are there any other supplements or medications you can take before you drink?
5- I don’t know if I drink too much or too little water when I drink alcohol. I drink alot of water, so I think I drink too much water when I drink alcohol. How much water do you drink when you drink alcohol?
6- When you do get symptoms such as headache immediately after drinking alcohol, how do you resolve it?
7- I don’t know if diabetics experience the same things when drinking alcohol or not. If so, how do you resolve it?

I would greatly appreciate personal experiences from other people who have this condition. Please be specific! Thank you to all!

A: As a pre-med student, I would simply tell you to quit drinking. No one wants to hear that but your presenting the variable that is causing your symptomatic response. Alcohol is like contraband to an individual with hypoglycemia. Alcohol inhibits all three forms of glucose production even in healthy individuals.

I think that event at the concert was a fluke. Even if it wasn’t a fluke, its hard to replicate that event given the fact that your psychological state is mildly altered when you attend live shows and physiological changes occur as well. Muscle response, DHEA levels, cortisol levels, etc. Many experts and physicians equate it to that of a stressful response even if your with friends given that “stress” is simply the sum total of mental and physical input over a given period of time. Your adrenal gland (which releases DHEA and cortisol among other hormones) also aides you in the day after a bout’ of drinking and activity. Its an acute response to a certain level of stimuli and that reaction to your environment is subject to change always. This, in conjunction with your drinking, can create a vast number of chemical levels and combination’s in your body.

Being hypoglycemic, when you drink it can activate whats known as the glyoxylate cycle. This cycle converts fats into carbs. This drops your bodies level of thiamine and in some cases (depends on its storage level), acetate which fuels the cycle primarily. The glyoxylate cycle can be shut off by glucose which in your case, you lack leaving this cycle running which can push the body into altered energy metabolism and incite a “fast” like condition. Your body most return to homeostasis and to do that it must alter hormone levels. All in all, your blood glucose levels plummet. This will alter not only you bodies glucose production but its use as well. The release of glycogen from the liver is also decreased.

All I would say is talk to your PCP to see if there is an option to balance you out.

Drinking is not good for you. Sure its fun to drink sometimes but its not the end of the world if you can’t. Your HypoGlm is under control and that’s what counts. If you feel its worth doing given the consequences, more power to you. I’m sorry about your situation and I hope you figure out the best line to take.

I hope this information helps…and I hope its all correct too. :O)

I have asked my doctors this over the years and they just tell me not to drink. This is why I wanted people who are hypoglycemic or diabetic to answer this question. I get sick because my blood sugar drastically drops, not because I don’t have the stomach for it. I know there is a way to manage it with alcohol, I just don’t know how. If you are not hypoglycemic or diabetic you will not understand.

A: As for someone like who is hypoglycemic (has low blood sugar), it is smart for you to be attentive to how foods and drinks can affect your condition. In some ways, all alcoholic beverages have the same effect: while your liver is processing the alcohol you drink, it stops releasing glucose, the sugar that floats around in your bloodstream. For the entire time the alcohol stays in your body — and it takes your body an hour to break down about one ounce of alcohol (the amount in a standard drink) — the only glucose circulating through your system will be from the food and drinks you consume at the same time. The American Diabetes Association explains that this glucose-lowering effect can last for as long as eight to twelve hours after drinking.

For people with diabetes who, like you, must also keep track of their blood sugar levels, almost all alcoholic beverages count for the same thing: two fats in their food exchange system. Only regular beer is counted as two fats, plus one starch. The American Dietetic Association states that wine, hard liquor, and light beers all have similar caloric contents for one drink: a 5 oz. glass of wine, 1-1/2 oz. of hard liquor (including scotch), 12 oz. of light beer. Regular beer, wine coolers, and mixed drinks all pack a more powerful calorie and sugar content punch; wine coolers have almost twice as many calories as a glass of dry table wine. Liqueurs and sweet wines have higher than average sugar levels, too.

Keep in mind that many alcoholic drinks are not just alcohol — mixed drinks, spritzers, coolers, and frozen daiquiris all contain additional ingredients, such as juice and soda, which can add a significant amount more sugar and calories to your drink. If you’re looking to keep sugar levels low, stick with diet (no-calorie) soda or tonic water, seltzer, club soda, or water to mix in drinks.

Sometimes alcohol can cause blood sugar levels to go up, instead of down. This usually happens if someone eats a meal shortly after, or while drinking, particularly if they consume drinks high in carbohydrates, like beer and juice-alcohol mixers. This is particularly of concern for people with diabetes.

Interestingly, the signs of intoxication and too low blood sugar are the same: feeling dizzy, lack of coordination, and confusion. Because of this, you might not realize that you need to eat something. The people surrounding you also might not know you have low blood sugar and assume your behavior is simply the result of drinking too much. It’s important to inform someone you’ll be hanging out with of your hypoglycemia, so that s/he can get you appropriate help and/or food if necessary. You may even want to wear an I.D. that identifies you as hypoglycemic. Also, since low blood sugar, as well as alcohol, can affect your coordination, perceptions, and reflexes, you’ll need to be doubly careful by not driving or doing anything else requiring quick thinking and reflexes.

Here are some strategies to try to make sure your blood sugar levels don’t dip too low:

* Eat a meal before drinking. Never drink on an empty stomach.
* Sample plenty of finger foods throughout the night, particularly those high in carbohydrates, such as pretzels and crackers. Avoid foods high in simple sugars, such as candy.
* If possible, mix your own drink, avoiding high sugar juices and sodas. Always measure the amount of alcohol that goes into your drink.
* Sip your drinks slowly.

So, you’re right, your hangover symptoms might be more or less intense depending on what kind of drink you’ve had the night before. In fact, you may even be waking up with extremely low blood sugar, while blaming your headache, drowsiness, and confusion on too many drinks. (Although it’s a good idea to drink in moderation anyway.) If you’re concerned about your blood sugar level dipping to uncomfortable levels while you sleep, you can have a snack before going to bed, or even wake up in the middle of the night to eat something.

Q: Can someone help me please?
i have a few questions! I was told i look like im retaining water,i was also told i look pg but im 100% sure im not how can i stop retaining water? I have been getting really heavy bleeding and i can’t figure out why does anyone know? i get really bad headaches to the point i cry and have to cry myself to sleep, i also some times get nose bleeds right before the Headaches come. My sight in my left eye gets really blurry. The Headaches sometimes last days. i have gone to the hospital because i woke up with blood coming from my mouth. the doctors were going to give me x-rays and cat scans till they found out i have no insurance. Then it was time for me to go home. I also have bad pain in my left leg and sometimes it gives out on me. Well i know that my family history has tumors,M.S, Cancer, Diabetics, Ulcers (which i do have) I don’t know whats wrong with me and i don’t have insurance so i can’t go to the doctor. I was told by a Human Resource lady that pretty much the only way that i can is if i have a baby and that’s what i don’t want right now. Looking forward to hearing something for anyone
i have gone to walks ins and free clincs but they give me tylonal and it never works

A: Be honest,It will take a while to find the ideal answer for the your question.provide a relevant resource here

Q: Hypoglycemia – what can happen?
I was recently diagnosed with hypoglycemia, however, I’m still somewhat confused about the whole thing. I know I’m supposed to eat a lot of protein and eat a little something every 3 hours or so, but I still have some questions. I’ve tried researching it, but what little I’ve found on it is written for diabetics.

What can happen if I don’t eat for a long amount of time? Like a full day, two days or longer? I know you wouldn’t typically go that long w/o food, whether hypoglycemic or not, it’s just that I would like to do something called a fast but don’t know what could happen. If it’s just something like my normal symptoms I’d fight through it but if it could cause serious problems I won’t do it.

Normally, when I go for a while without eating I get a headache and feel very tired. When it gets very bad I get a migraine and severe nausea, I can barely even make myself eat something, I just have to lay down.

Also, is it normal for my symptoms to not be consistent, in regards to time and degree? Like some days I can go 4+ hours without food and my headache will be so slight I’ll barely notice it, yet others I can get a migraine just 2 hours after eating. Most days I’m feeling pretty bad within 2-3 hours. Also, why is it that I feel fine when I wake up, 8+ hours after my last meal, yet during the day I can’t go 2 without feeling bad?

Please forgive me if I sound ignorant in asking about all this, fasting in particular. This condition seemed to come on fairly rapidly, I really started to notice the symptoms over the summer when I’d be so fatigued by 2 or 3pm I could hardly do anything. The headaches and nausea are pretty bad too. But I’m still used to “normal” hunger, I guess, where if you just wait long enough you’ll feel better.

Thanks for any help, my doctor didn’t really go over any of this with me, other than just to make sure I eat properly. =/

A: No you probably shouldn’t fast. The way I found out about my hypoglycemia was from barely eating anything all day (a couple snacks and dinner) because I just wasn’t hungry. Do you know what happened? I had a seizure…if during or after a seizure or similar episode your sugar drops too low you could kill yourself. Keep in mind, some cases of hypoglycemia aren’t that sever and you may be able to go a day without too much harm IF you ask your doctor. Also, you should probably measure your bs (blood sugar) just in case so if it drops into the “danger zone” you can actually eat something. This isn’t something you should be careless with. You can end up doing yourself a lot of harm this way. If you really want to fast, do a variation. Don’t eat until your sugar gets really low. Then eat or you’ll be putting yourself at risk. No one can expect you to fast when it could end up killing you.

Q: diabeties question?
i found out a month ago i was type 2 diabetic. im 23. the doctor put me on metformin twice a day. i test my blood sugar alot. i found out i was diabetic when i went to the doctor complaining of the flu and flu symtoms. im still feeling really weak and tired. my blood sugar readings have been pretty steady around 90’s to 120’s. i have changed my diet alot and have lost 9 pounds so far. i work alot. 10 hours a day and work 6 days a week. so exercise is hard. i bought a treadmill and working on using it more. im otherwise pretty active around the house.

what are thing i can do to get out of this tired and weak mode? how did you get motovated to exercise? how do you get over food cravings and overeating? did you experience any headaches and how did you get rid of them? how often should i test my blood sugar? any tips or advice for us beginners?

one other odd question, can diabetics donate blood?

A: Last question First!!! Yes, diabetics can donate blood, but filling out the forms is a pain now. Some of the blood banks don’t like us too much.

Eating low carb will eventually bring you back up to feeling good and strong. Patience my friend!! Patience is a virtue!! It is hard to come by, but totally worth it.

Wow!!! On your numbers, You should be back to feeling good in about 6 months. Just keep doing what you are doing.

Q: is it diabetes if i ate….and my blood sugar is?

lightheadedness
dizzyness
cant really concentrate at school
lower stomach pains(everyday)
loss of appetite,or beeing hungry even after a meal(it was beeing lossing appetite,but like since sunday,im always hungry)
thirstynesss
peeing alot
headaches every day
and my whole body starts to shake nonstop if i havnt eaten in a while
.well the day that i went,i drank a glass of milk,and a small spoon of sugar,dont get mad.i had to because i didnt feel good,and i was hungry and had no time.also i felt like puking.
doc checked my blood sugar,and was telling me how 50 percent of mexicans or latins are diabetics and stuff.i was like okkk??im latina.the nurse checked my blood and she said ok.??what???then my doctor is sending me to a specialist,so they can do this glucose tolerence test,i have to do fasting.also my doctor told me i lost a couple pounds cause i had weighed myself like 2 weeks before,and i was 99,and i droped down to 97.so my ? is that,cause i ate a spoonful of sugar,could it had of lowered my sugar?
also, im like alwayyyys yawing and stuff.2 days ago, before lunch at skool i was getting trembeling,drank a soda,and felt a little bit better.
also,bruises.oh geez.ive had this tiny one on my right hand that ive had for like a week already and it has still been like the size of half of a dime.wat the heck?my bruises usually went away withing a couple of days. :/im always feeing tiered like if i didnt sleep the whole night. ive been having the symptoms for like a month and a half now.

my bed time is actually at 9:30 lol.
i ate a bunelo right now,like a tostada with sugary stuff kinda,a chip thingie,and it gave me a tiney head ache.
also, my fingers,hands and feet numb in like 5 minutes

A: You need to eat a little bit 6 times a day. Your symptoms definately look like you are not eating enough. Try keeping cold cuts like ham and chicken around, so you can make yourself a quick sandwich. Same with eggs – you can cook them very fast, and they are a great hit of protein. Try to avoid anything overly sugary, because that can cause a sugar crash, which can mean a headache and crankyness.

Also, get back with your doctor, so he can determine whether you are indeed diabetic or what.

Q: Why do I get severe migraines when I DON’T eat sweets?
I’m not 100% on this… but I’ve been getting severe, unbearable, migraines until I eat something sweet, like ice cream. Why is this? My husband seems to think I might be diabetic, but… doesn’t most diabetics have to AVOID sugar?

Diabetes runs in my family pretty strong… and its one of my biggest fears. I don’t want to get it myself. I am overweight (65lbs overweight) due to having two children. I plan on trying to lose the weight here soon, but I was just wondering why I’ve been getting these headaches? The worst ones are when I first wake up in the morning, and I’ve also been cramping very, very bad…I woke up at 5am today and had to take some tylenol.
Oh god, I certainly hope I’m not pregnant again! I had my tubes tied… but I just read up on something called post tubal ligation syndrome, although most doctors don’t recognize it quite yet–I seem to have most of those symptoms. Since I had my tubes tied, ectopic pregnancies are common with it… I hope and pray I’m not experiencing one right now…

A: Maybe you’re pregnant again. o.o?

Q: Sticky saliva after eating which I can’t swallow?
I get really sticky saliva after eating which I can’t swallow and makes me vomit at times. Sometimes I also have mucus flowing backwards which I can’t sneeze it out. I try making loud gargling like noises to clear up the sticky saliva on my throat and it embarrasses me. I’ve had this for 2 to 3 years. One doc said it could be ulcers another said it could be allergic rhinities but both their meds did not stop the disease entirely.

Other Info that could be relevant:
I am 23.
I have flaky dry scalp. I have had episodic headaches every 6 weeks on the left side of my head for last 10 years.
My mom,and her parents have diabetics.
My dad’s brother’s muscles are all wasted and he has been bed-ridden since he was 20 or something.

Please help if you know something.

A: I think you have chsonic sinus condition that results in postnasal drip.

Q: I get a head ache, dizzy and black out when i eat sugar, splenda, stevia….????not diabetic or hypoglycimic?
I can have a limited amount of fruit and carbs do not bother me. but all sugar such as regular sugar, splenda, raw sugar, stevia and all natural herbs, sweet life, sweet leaf(stevia plus), equal, sweet&Low… I have been tested for Diabetics, and hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia (which ever one is not Diabetics)? what could it be? but also id i eat NOW SUGAR AT ALL i get a headache…

A: You need to go back to the doctor for tests. Sounds like some kind of weird allergy or something. Don’t eat it if you know what it does to you and get your butt to the doctor.

Q: Do I need to see a doctor for these blood sugar issues?
The past few months my blood sugar problems seem to be getting worse. If I don’t eat every 2-3 hours, I get dizzy, sweaty, a bad headache, anxious, blurry vision, and feel like I can’t think straight. After I eat, I feel better, but it only lasts for about 1-2 hours and then the whole cycle starts all over again. It is getting in the way of my day to day life.

I’ve had this problem for most of my life, but it seems to be getting worse over the past few months (I’m 26). My appetite varies from day to day. Hungry all the time one day and not hungry at all the next. I’m not losing any weight or having an increase in thirst. Both of my (overweight) parents are type 2 diabetics, but I am not your “classic” type 2 diabetic (I’m only 102 lbs). I couldn’t be a type 1 diabetic at 26 right. Also, I have heard of hypoglycima, but only in relation to being diabetic.

What do you think? Do I need to go to a doctor, or is this not really a big deal?

THANK YOU!
So, I tried to make an appointment but was told the internal med guy in my area isn’t scheduling any “new people” appointments until Feb! I feel like crap…do I have anything else to do other than wait until Feb? :(

A: I think you should really see a doctor. I have a friend who’s parent who are both diabetic and she has low sugar and suffers from same signs as you display. She has to eat non stop. She caries candy bars and cokes every where she goes. Go get it checked out for sure. 26 would be way to young to be playing with fire so to speak. I saw on TV a man who had low sugars and went into a coma while driving and wound up dieing because he didn’t try to find out what was wrong with him. Good luck . Hope everything works out soon.

Q: My BP Shows different reading in each clinic within 5mins. difference??? Kindly help?
Yesterday i had gone for my regular check ups (5th month pregnant) I am over 35 yrs of age and suffering from diabetics, high bp (which was regulated with Aldomat tabs), hypothyroidism (taking 150mg. eltroxin), when i went for my regular check ups in Govt. Clinic it showed first 155/93 and later the doc. checked on manual and the result was 150/90..so she directed me to maternity hospital..where in the first room it showed 155/88 and in the second room it showed 160/110, they told immediately to get admitted…but later one more nurse came and checked and found my bp was 144/85 …so they said its normal and told to do urine test..if Albumin is high then you should get admitted. But Urine test came normal. Later i went to Private clinic (with manual) in 4th floor my bp showed 140/80 and in 7th floor after 10 mins showed 110/70, kindly help!!! I don’t have any headache or anyother high BP symptoms.My home kit always normal 110/80

A: A person’s blood pressure can fluctuate due to many different things, including. If your blood pressure came down to a normal level and your urine was negative, I wouldn’t be too concerned! Just keep an eye on signs and symptoms of Preeclampsia. Go to the following website to learn more: http://www.justmommies.com/pregnancy/concerns-and-complications/preeclampsia-pregnancy-induced-hypertension ?

Q: Wondering if this is normal…?
A couple of nights recently I’ve had around four glasses of orange juice over the course of a few hours. I’ve noticed that after about an hour I begin to get a headache and feel warm and start to perspire a little bit. I was wondering if this could be a normal reaction to the sugar content, or if it might be a sign of something like diabetes. It runs in my family. I’m in my mid-twenties, and most diabetics in my family were diagnosed later, but it is something that I’ve been considering. Does anyone know? Thanks.

A: To this specific question: doubtful.
More than likely it was a vitamin C rush.
The fructose in OJ is the easiest to assimilate in the body.
If you drank 4 glasses in an hour I might say yes.

You are getting you sugar levels checked regularly aren’t you?

Q: If I am pre-diabetic and start experiencing eye problems, does it mean its become diabetes?
These eye problems are REALLY similar to what they say diabetics get. Temporary blurryness where I can’t see faces from far away and reading gives me a headache; bulging veins in my eyes (not just bloodshot, bulging); days where my eyes are fine (maybe 2 days or 3 days a week), its usually worse at night….

I was told twice that I have high blood sugar and both times I managed to bring it down to average. It’s been about 8 months since I last checked and….well I fixed my diet but it might have been too little too late.

Can you experience this problem when your condition is still reversable? Or does this mean I have to start taking medication and calling myself diabetic?

I am getting a blood check as soon as possible but may have to wait a week or two and am looking for some temporary answers.

Thank you
Actually, Runner, If you don’t mind I would like to email you directly but your email is blocked on yahoo answers

A: Yes it could be go get a1c and reg blood test.. buy check monitor to check too
