What causes drop in sugar levels while on GaviLyte-G?

I am scheduled for a colonoscopy at 7 tomorrow morning. I have been prescribed GaviLyte-G and am in the process of drinking that. However, I am also diabetic. My blood/sugar is dropping. It s down to 94 right now. Was 220 a few hours ago. What should I do now?
