I have come to the conclusion that this old body does not like to have blood sugar levels below 100 and I get a shaky feeling when it gets to 97. In the 80's I feel really shaky so I don't let it get that low anymore, as I suffered from hypoglycemia some years ago, mostly due to stress in the home. I cured that problem with diet change and cutting down on the noise and disruptions at the time. Even the bird in my daughter's bird cage couldn't stand the noise, and it went into a corner and died. I turned down the TV and the phone ring. I am awake because I ate two delicious salads that were low calorie and need a snack which I am trying to avoid if I can. I also eat an excellent diet that is balanced and eliminates sugar and many carbs. All I can say is I am working on it. Dorisena

@dorisena I used to have the same problem. I would get up in the morning so shaky and weak feeling that I would immediately check my sugar level and it was never below 80, which seems to be the number that things should be fine at. I can remember being in the shower and just wanting to literally sit on the floor because I felt so weak.
I haven't had that type of problem for a very long time, actually since before my liver transplant. I have no idea what role the liver plays in this but it must have some influence.
