well fukk...almost got myself in some trouble last night...
took 7ius' of humalog IM...waited 5 minutes drank about 60grams of dex ( about 8.5-9grams per iu) and 10 grams of creatine....then waited another 15 minutes and had 80grams of whey...
Came home...and as i was preparing my dinner i started feeling dizzy and shaky...not to bad, but i could tell...so i ate 3 glucose tabs and went on...well....as i was geting ready to make my rice i started sweating real bad and knew i was hypo...and **** it hit fast...(this is all within a 3-4 minute range)...so i had princess come in and make me some gatorade, and i munched down on a bannana and had 4 more glucose tbas, and then drank 1 cup of gatorade....sweating got worse and worse, i was shaky, got chill bumps...kinda scary....
but then within like 3 minutes i snapped right out of it, and felt perfectly fine...except princess was pissed thinking i almost killed myself...
Heres my question...could it have been that i waited to long for my second meal with carbs???...i am pretty sure the clock at the gym is off from my home clock, and it always takes me 10 or 15 minutes to completely fix the meal....so i could be close to 20 minutes off now that i think about it...
what the hell could i change???...

Have you monitored your BG levels at all before starting slin? Or after? that could play a key role in determining the problem!

Dextrose still should be taken in 5 mins after inject, to get the carbs shuttled at the correct time. He had problems w/going hypo in the SECOND meal, not the first. Chances are you just pushed a little too long between meals. There are a lot of other external factors that affect BG as well, (heat, motion, etc.). Some days you might shoot IM, and feel no hypo for 2 hrs after inject with no PPWO meal. It's a guessing game, but keeping time as accurate as possible is very important.

no need to wait 5 min after shot,if you are shooting IM then it is active within 1 or 2 min and spikes about 1 hr after,this is when you got the first signs of hypo.i have noticed if i do anything more then drive home from the gym after my shot,i start to sweat and shake.i have to eat immediately when i get home approx 45 min after shot.i used to get a shower 1st but i always felt shaky and sweaty after showering.and i realized even just the act of showering i was burning to much energy(carbs).so basically just keep your activity to a minimum between your pwo meal and your ppwo meal.

By the way I'm glad to hear your OK though bro! Even with precautions I am always slightly nervous with my slin use. I assume your carrying glucose tablets with you wherever you go as I see you took some?
Advice to all those considering insulin use......do what Coldstone did and tell someone who is around you a lot what your if you can, it maybe difficult but is potentially lifesaving!

lol at victor.... I dont think you will become diabetic with slin as long as its used for 30 days.
Cold- Good to hear you are alright. Now you know what it feels like for you to go hypo. Just a crappy way to find out about it

Just a thought...you might want to consider prepping your second meal in advance and that way it is just a quick minute in the microwave and you are ready to go. Slin timing while generally consistant, more so with humalog, does vary with different factors and checking your BG, being familiar with hypo signs, and being prepare in advance will go along way towards being safe.

and and update:
Last night i ate right at the 60 minute mark, but i started getting that funky feeling at about 50 minutes...it never got to bad, cause i was actually eating my rice at about 55min mark or so....
but im willing to bet that my BG makes the big drop at the 40-45minute mark....so tommarow im gonna test my BG levels after doing my normal routine and see...
i have however rulled out that its my simple carb intake right after the shot...i felt no different between 7 to 10gs per IU...so its that 2nd meal thats giving me the problem...
Ive only got 7 test strips, but ill post what i test before and at the 10 minute mark through1 hour...to see if it is dropping when i feel it is...

anyways...i met her at the gym ...she was on a treadmill on a friday night about 10-11 and i knew she was my kinda gal ...it also helped that i was pounding my arms that day and looked all swoled up
There out there...just be honest and let em know who you are and what you do (as in AAS use)...thats what i did, and she hated it, but then i educated her and it was all cool.
