Waking Up

Have you ever woke up thinking that your blood sugar is really high and it's not? That happened to me the other day. I woke the other day feeling awful so I took my blood sugar to see what it was. It was 123. So I asked myself, "Why do I feel awful?" My theory is that my blood sugar shot up really high in the middle of the night and then peaked and started to slowly come back down. This happens a lot when you eat fatty foods. I'm in college right now so it's really hard for me to avoid having a high fat, unhealthy college diet. I also checked for ketones to see if I was right. If you feel like you have ketones, even if your blood sugar is fine, check anyways. I had a trace amount. So I took the appropriate actions to treat my ketones like drinking water and staying inactive. Within an hour my ketones had passed.
