What veggies produce Insulin.

My son is having type 1 . He diagnosed in april 2015. He does not like vegetables. He is having so much spikes in his sugar levels. Sometimes it goes to 400 and sometimes drops to 35 . I am very scared. Sometimes in sleep his sugar levels are going down.

Two days back I just hold his hand and felt sweaty then I checked on glucometer and reading was 35. Immediately I woke him up and gave sugar water. I am very scared to sleep at nights now. What if I sleep and his sugar levels come down. I am so scared dont know what to do. I am always checking by holding his hand.  Can anybody can give me any remedy for this please.

Perhaps the most common image connected with diabetes is that of friends and family relying on a stash of orange juice or candy bars to revive a diabetic if his blood sugar dips far below normal, causing hypoglycemia. In actuality, hypoglycemia is now quite rare, except as a side effect of some combinations of medications.

Nonetheless, people with type 1 diabetes and their families do still need to know about the signs and risks of low blood sugar, because a severe case of hypoglycemia can lead to coma and death.

Diabetes: Low Blood Sugar Symptoms

“Typically what most people will feel is a somewhat sudden onset of shakiness, dizziness, sweatiness, weakness, feeling of anxiety, nervousness, and irritability,” says Suzanne Ghiloni, RN, BSN, a diabetes educator at Joslin Diabetes Center at Harvard University in Boston.

And, as people with diabetes age, the symptoms of low blood sugar become more subtle, says Ghiloni, making it harder to feel when your blood sugar is too low. This is known as hypoglycemia unawareness.
But fainting from hypoglycemia unawareness doesn’t happen to everyone. Hypoglycemia unawareness is more likely to occur in those who:
Have nerve damage, also called neuropathy

Are on strict glucose control

Take certain kinds of high blood pressure or heart medicines.

Many people rely on family and friends to help them identify when hypoglycemia is coming on.

“Sometimes when people have lost the more overt symptoms, significant others and family members may be alerted by the look of the person. They may seem not as sharp, have a glazed look, very pale, or seem slowed, or their gait is a little different,” Ghiloni explains.

Diabetes: How to Handle Low Blood Sugar
If you test and find your blood sugar is low or you feel the symptoms of low blood sugar, you need about 15 grams of carbohydrates to counter the hypoglycemia, says Ghiloni. This works out to about one-half cup of orange juice, a tablespoon of honey, or 10 jelly beans. Then wait 15 minutes and test your blood sugar again to see if it is going back up.

“I particularly favor glucose tablets because they are premeasured, there’s no guesswork, they’re portable, they last for a very long time, no one is going to ask to borrow them from you, and they don’t taste so wonderful that you would want more,” says Ghiloni. It is important not to overtreat, so it helps to have an exact dose available, she adds.

If you take the correct amount of tablets or food and your blood sugar does not come up, you can take another dose and test again in 15 minutes.

Diabetes: Preparing for Unconscious Hypoglycemia

Despite your best efforts, there may come a time when you pass out from low blood sugar.
There are two ways for people to respond to a diabetic’s unconscious hypoglycemia. Someone can either call your Doctor for help or give you a glucagon shot if you have one available. It will take anywhere between 5 and 20 minutes for an unconscious diabetic to come around.

Both solutions require that the people around you know what to do while you are unconscious, as you won’t be able to help yourself. Also make sure that loved ones know what not to do:
They must not give you an insulin shot.
They must not give you anything to eat or drink.
They must not put a hand in your mouth.

Because it’s not always possible to be with people you know, you should wear some form of identification, like a medical bracelet or necklace that makes people aware that you have diabetes in case of unconsciousness. “If you are in a strange place and your behavior is odd, people may think [it’s due to] other things, such as drunkenness — so treatment is delayed or misdiagnosed,” warns Ghiloni.

With good preparation, tracking your blood sugar regularly, and knowing the symptoms of low blood sugar, you should be able to handle any episodes of hypoglycemia that you experience.

Hi I am Andrea a German Typ 1 . I have Diabetes since 30 years. 
I recommend first of all for your son to check for a doctor who is familiar with an insulin pump and CGM . Your son needs first of all proper setting of his blood sugar a pump is in my opinion the best way of treating typ1 and your son has all his life before him.
The Kids blood results go easily up to 800 but the meter can not show this results. It take some time until the sugar levels will be more stable.
If your son drops in Hypo do not wast time to check his blood sugar- give him juice or glucose and act fast otherwise he risk to become unconscious !!
Help him – he is with hypo glummsy confused … he can not handle things any more properly = clownery 
Do act fast to find a proper doctor

Hi Andrea, Thank you so much for the advice. It is really helpful. Please tell us more tips if you have any. would want to know.

Hi Jenny how old is our son? Have you found a good doctor for your son. Check for one who can give you advise for children diabetes this is essentials. If you can manage find some one who has knowledge about the insulin pump and perhaps continuous glucose management. There are not many doctors available.  Have for his lows juice in small tetra packs available they work faster then sugar cubes, or gummy bears (15) -chocolate does not work good because of the fat. 
Let him eat sweets /ice creamswhile you are present this is better then tell him this all forbidden for him = he would eat them maybe eat  secretly.

I have a doc around my area but I think might have to change to specialist. He is 11 years old. I recently tried coke and it brought his sugar up, but juice maybe healthier.
I have heard of CGMS but is it affordable to keep buying?
How to prevent night falls in his sugar like stop it from going to 35? Any tips? 
We keep nothing at rhymes home so he can’t eat, still sugars very high sometimes.

Hi Jenny yes I think you need a specialist. To give you a tip for preventing nightfalls I would need t know when he eats last-what he eats – if the sugar level before sleeping is under 120 make him eat 1 extra KH e.g. yoghurt, slice of bread with peanut butter, apple, half banana,….
The CGMS cost are not cheap but worth while because with this the setting of his diabetes will be more exact and better to follow up to prevent highs and lows. But for you affordable means maybe something different to me . You can also use the CGMS not with all pump versions. 
So more information I can give you if you can tell me your son uses a pump if yes which one..
A specialist I know in Mumbai Andheri west.

No Andrea, he is on injection. He eat his last meal at around 9 pm which is 2 chapati with a veggie and rice and daal. twice a week chicken curry and roti and rice. He eats normal everyday rhymes home food. Sometimes he even eats burger or pizza as he is a child and loves it. What range must sugar be in before he sleeps?

Hi Jenny the pulses take 4 h to digest so if you give him his injection when he eats his body has the insulin on wrong time as the chapati and rice would need it directly but the pulses only in 4hs so I recommend that you change for a specialist for pump and cgms. There are only 2 doc in Mumbai.

Boil bhindi in water. And drink the water. Also bitter melon seeds. All very good for increasing insulin sensitivity.
