    Best answer: You cant just bring your blood sugar down when you have hyperglycemia. Everything you eat, whether it has sugar or no sugar, is eventually converted to glucose at some point in time and burned off for energy. Insulin is the only way to get this glucose out of your bloodstream so that it can be used for energy. With that being said, the only way to lower your blood sugar is to be prescribed insulin and take the medication. You can, of course, do things to keep it lower, such as: no carbs, no sugar, eat lean meats, veggies, stay away from fruit.

  • What could be wrong with my mother?

[Elevating the feet and legs could help now.] Muscle cramps can be from a lack of certain minerals (like potassium).

  • Do you have age onset diabetes? If so what were the initial symptoms that caused you to see a doctor?

    Best answer: My husband has type 2 diabetes. He knew something wasn't right when he was getting up two and three times every night to pee. He also thought he was peeing a little more often during the daytime too. His brother is type 1 diabetic so he asked his brother to let him use his meter to check his sugar levels. ... show more
    Best answer: My husband has type 2 diabetes. He knew something wasn't right when he was getting up two and three times every night to pee. He also thought he was peeing a little more often during the daytime too. His brother is type 1 diabetic so he asked his brother to let him use his meter to check his sugar levels. He was over 300 on a random home meter test. He made an appointment with the doctor to get an official diagnosis. I don't remember what his first A1C reading was at that time.

    No matter what issue is causing your symptoms, with those kinds of symptoms, you need a check up to determine the cause. It might be diabetes or it might be something else.
