where people touched by diabetes help each other.

I can tell a low from a high, but about 45 minutes after taking a correction dose of insulin, I always feel as if I am in the 60s or 50s, but when I re-test, I am usually around 250 at that point, but my numbers will continue to fall to the correct range, then I feel normal. Do you ever feel low as your correction dose of insulin is taking effect, but your number is still somewhat high?

Absolutely! I learned at a much younger age that when you blood sugar is dropping quickly you feel it the same as a low. I've been type 1 for 47 years and I still experience that. Dexcom is the best tool I've ever known. If at all possible get one and verify with a finger stick. Best. 😊

That explains it! Glad to meet someone with the same unusual experience! :-)

I hope to someday have a dexcom, that would be wonderful to see my numbers so constantly.
