Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 days ago):
I had my Remicade infusion (it also includes a corticosteroid - not sure of the name) on Tuesday. Same dosage as normal. Previous reaction to infusion 4 mos prior due to Benadryl, which was removed from the infusion thereafter. Doc prescribed 3000 unit Vitamin D.
On Tuesday, I ate normally. At about 7pm, my blood sugars dropped to 67. (I am NOT a diabetic, however my 16 yr old son is a type 1, and when I was dizzy he took note and tested me.) He gave me a juice and it came right up to 110.
On Wednesday, normal day again. Ate normally. At about 7pm I took a short easy walk, not even breaking a sweat, and felt extremely dizzy and shaking uncontrollably, felt I was about to pass out. Again tested, and came out at 48. Immediately ingested juice and brownie which made me feel much better.
Today (Thursday) I tested midday and it was 98.
Trying to figure out why I dropped my blood sugars. This is NOT normal. I have not had blood sugar problems EVER in the past.
