Patient :I developed diabetes after a total thyroidectomy due to cancer. But, lately I have been struggling to keep my blood sugar up and have twice woken up shaky and blood sugar was in the low 60's. I was told to eat a protein bar to keep my blood sugar level, but my microalbumin showed that I had a protein level of 100. I am concerned about eating the protein bars because of this, but I don't know how to keep my blood sugar up. Can you offer any advice?
Symptoms: low blood sugar, protein blood work level is 100. Shaky and feel out of it the rest of the day.
so you have diabetes and recurrent hypoglycemia, and kidney involvement with microalbuminurea. Eating the protein bars does not affect urine protein. You probable need a medicine called ACEinhibitor.
you should see a physician and discuss about it
