So I had a dream last night that I was at some kind of fancy professional conference, and there were tables of hors d'oeuvres, wines, fruits, etc.  I was talking to one of my sisters about various things, and another one of my sisters came up, said nothing, and handed me an oddly folded note.  I thought, "this is weird, if she has something to tell me, why doesn't she just say it?"  I was puzzling about this while unfolding the note.  I finally got it open and realized she had written it on some old, ripped up piece of junk mail or something.  And all it said was, "EAT SOMETHING".  I woke up and took my blood sugar, which was 65. 

This kind of dream where I am trying to figure something out, and out of nowhere hear or see the words, "EAT SOMETHING", then I wake up with low blood sugar has happened to me before, undoubtedly my subconcious at work.  Does anyone else have these kind of "helpful" dreams?

oh, yes indeed. i definitely do :o)

in my dreams i have a tendency to have an "epiphany" moment where the dream is going along normally, then i (or someone) say to myself "your blood sugar is low." it's usually just like that, too. it interrupts the process of the dream long enough for me to wake up and do a blood test. because my bedroom is in the basement, i started keeping juice boxes by my bed so i don't have to fumble around going up the stairs trying to treat it. 

funny thing what our dreams can tell us :op

There have been a couple of times where I  just randomly woke up in the middle of the night and it turned out that I had low blood sugar.

If I wake up in the middle of the night and I'm wide awake, that means I better test because I'm likely low.  I don't know why that wakes me up, and since I'm usually not a "morning" person, I don't know why that wakes me up so fully.  I don't know that I've ever had a dream warning me of a low however.

But, if I am looking for a bathroom in my dream, I darn well better wake myself up because that means I really need to pee, and probably should test too, as I'm likely running high.  If I actually find a toilet in my dream, that is high alert to wake up now, because my bladder is ready to burst!  Crazy how the subconscious is trying to scream at you sometimes.  :)

Hmm, I don't think I have ever had a dream like that.  I do, however, wake up in the middle of the night if my blood sugar is low.  it's annoying but, I guess, better than the alternative.

I have had a dream like the one you mentioned. Sometimes I will have a nightmare as well. Its kind of weird how your body can signal you with dreams.

On a side note, the reverse happened to me once. I had a dream where I tested and was low, I woke up, and without realizing dream from reality just went ahead and started eating. After about a minute or two I stopped and paused, realizing that I had made a huge mistake and not tested when I woke up. Turns out my BS was fine. Oops

I've had lots of dreams where I will just be eating nonstop, stuffing my face. This usually wakes me up and I realize that my blood sugar is low and really do need to go eat something! I don't think my dreams are quite as detailed as yours though, that is really cool that your sister gave you a note to eat something! 

Sometimes I feel low in my dreams (which I guess is in real life as well) because I'm really low.  Usually, if I'm really low I'll wake up right away and immediately search for anything to eat.  Often when I dream I'm low, though, I don't wake up, I guess because I'm not "low enough."  I have had dreams where I've been really high or really low in the dream but my blood sugar has actually been fine...It's weird.

I usually wake up when my blood is low.  I wake up in a daze.  However, my dream always seems to fade away when my blood is low.  It's like everything that I'm dreaming about just disappears.

Before getting a pump I used to have a lot of bad overnight lows.  Whever I had a bad one I'd wake myself up with a stressful dream of being underwater, unable to come to the surface. 

Thankfully I haven't had that dream in a while. 

I have those exact same things happen when I sleep. Thank goodness the body does that!

ya i do but not in a dream, i just randomly wake up in the middle of the night when i feel low 

I dream about women. You guys are weird :P

I have yet had a dream about being low. It seems when I wake up because I am really hot, then my BS is usually low. However I recently got the dexcom CGMS and I notice when it goes off at night I hit the ok button to "snooze" it like I would an alarm clock and I need to figure out how to stop doing that! lol

Hi Cindy! I myself do have dreams fairly similar to this when my sugar drops low. My dreams are not as subtle as yours though. I often (when experiencing a low sugar) have dreams of myself in a very dangerous situation, often close to death. I wake up in a panic and check my sugar and realize I need to boost it back up. I guess they should be considered helpful..as they wake us up and make ourselves aware of the low sugar. So, no you don't stand alone here. Heres to "sweeter" dreams!

I usually just drool when I'm low and asleep. The drool usually wakes me up!

I dream about Pat.  You guys are weird =P

Joking aside, I remember a dream once where I told my friend I was feeling funny, he told me to test my blood sugar, so I did (still in my dream), and it was 800.  Next my friend said to me, you should probably wake up and test your blood sugar.  I was low.

I love it.
