Irritable ? may be diabetes!!

I read this question today on the Atkins Face book page:

Does anyone else feel frustrated/irritated all the time? I am so short tempered with my kids and I get seriously angry over little things. I wasn't like this before starting. Anyone else? What can I do?

Here's my answer:
It may be low blood sugar!! I have diabetes and one of the signs of my blood sugar dropping is irritability, fast heart beat and sweating.
You may need to eat more often to correct that, but get your blood sugar checked out!!

You are not mean because you can't eat what you love any more, don't even go there!!!

If you are on a low carb & low sugar diet, that's the best thing you can do for diabetes!!
Get healthy. Get your blood sugar checked.
Mine has been dropping a lot recently because I'm not eating lots of carbs and hidden sugars
any more.
So I don't need nearly the amount of meds I have been taking for years!!

  1. Thank you Joan! I can relate to this. Blood sugar plays a huge role in our mood swings. I had "gestational diabetes" 36 years ago with my son Travis (from gaining too much weight) and have suffered form these mood swings, heart palpitations and hot sweats. Never knew why until now.
