Stop the shakes ,are my sugars causing me to do this ?

Patient

Q: When your sugars go down between 55 and 70 can that cause extream shaking ?

Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. The normal blood glucose level should be between 70 and 100 mg/dL. You are likely experiencing the side effects of hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia can cause nervousness, rapid heart rate, irritability, fatigue and sudden tremors. We recommend that you consult your physician to determine if your insulin dosage needs to be readjusted given your current blood sugar ranges.
