    Hot flushes and air bubbles in me tubes!

    Post by Mrs Vimes on Sat Mar 14 2015, 13:54

    Don't laugh,I've reached a certain age and lately have been waking up drenched in sweat.
    On testing its not related to a hypo! Took me ages to work it out as I'm 22 in the head. I'm bloody well premenopausal.

    Gutted. About the same time, my blood sugars would increase! Eventually checked for bubbles in my pump tubing and kept finding them!

    Thought about it for a bit - I think I'm cooking my insulin when I'm having a hot flush so the air bubbles are coming out that normally wouldn't.

    Think of a fizzy drink out of the fridge for a while that tastes flat as it warms up.
    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Sorry to hear you are having problems. Pre-menopausal / menopausal is never an easy time. Alas, as I'm not diabetic I can not give any views on the pump situation ....... I can only say that when pre, or menopausal, many do say that by following the LCHF lifestyle does help.

    My thoughts are with you - take care

    All the best Jan

    Thanks Jan. Now if only I can report this to some because there is obviously a mistake here!
    Got a list of herbs from a friend going through it. All from Holland and Barrett so nothing risky. They all sound like something from a Hogwarts Magic class though.
    When I rock up with the bottles it will be obvious what I'm there for.
    I'm going to check for bubbles now every time I wake up with a hot flush.
