While in Lake Tahoe I experienced very high blood sugar levels, I spent two days there and it was so difficult to get my blood sugar below 250. Other things I was going through were nose bleeds, fatigue and difficulty breathing.
When I was there I started tweeting about my symptoms and someone I know told me that they bring their type 1 son to Lake Tahoe every year and he can't control his sons blood sugars there either. He said it is because of the higher altitude. He also told me I was probably having altitude sickness which I then looked up on the internet and that calmed me down because honestly I have never had a nose bleed in my life till I went to Tahoe and thought I was having a heart attack or something.
I had no idea that elevation could do these types of things to a person! Who knew! Has anyone else gone to a higher altitude and experienced this type of thing?
