Discuss Your Blood Sugar Levels With Your Doctor

The Reasons You May Experience High and Low Blood Sugar Levels

Watching your diet, staying moderately active, and taking your medications consistently, including your insulin, are important as you manage your blood sugar levels. But despite doing these things, you might still experience some challenges with changes in your glucose levels. For some, even the weather can have an effect on their levels. If this is your experience, there may be other potential reasons to consider.

Some reasons that your blood glucose might rise:

  • Not getting the right dose of insulin and/or other diabetes medication
  • Other medications that may cause your glucose levels to fluctuate
  • Illness
  • Dehydration
  • Menstrual periods
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Injury

Some reasons that your blood glucose might fall:

  • Alcohol (especially on an empty stomach)
  • Other medications
  • More exercise than usual (physical activity makes your body more sensitive to insulin and can lower blood glucose)

It's time to bring the issue up with your doctor, and work with him or her on possibly adjusting your dose.
