Have You Noticed This About Your Diabetes?

Yawning With Low Blood Sugar

Yawning With Low Blood Sugar

| Nov 17, 2012

In this new column, "Have You Noticed This About Your Diabetes?" readers send in observations and questions, and, in response, other readers share similar and not-so-similar experiences by posting in the "Comments" section.

The following is Christie's question about the association of hypoglycemia with yawning. 

"Years ago, I noticed a sign whenever my blood sugars are too low and occasionally when they are too high: yawning! It has been as accurate as can be. Often if I continually yawn, my husband will ask me to go and check my blood sugar. More than 98 percent of the time, it is as accurate a predictor as shaking or sweating, and it usually happens much sooner. Has anyone else ever noticed this symptom? People think I'm crazy when I bring up this topic!"

If you have a question that you would like answered by a member of our advisory board or shared with our readers, please email editor@diabeteshealth.com, and write your question in the subject line. And please use the "Comments" feature to respond to the above question. (Note that comments take one to two days to post because they must be approved by an editor.)

It is important to keep in mind that diabeteshealth.com is a site by the people and for the people of the diabetes community.
