Hiya RADGIRL! I agree with Chutz. Having had hypoglycemia for years before my actual Diabetes DX, it's important to get some tests done and check it out to be sure.
If you are hypoglycemic, eating small and balanced (meaning a good mix of carbs, fat, and protein) every 4-5 hours, will go a long way in staving off those 'lows'. If you find yourself getting too shaky & low, test your blood sugars then go have 15 gram of some fast-acting carb (juice, regular cola, hard candy, honey, etc.) to bring you back up if you're below 3.9(70). Test again after 15 minutes to make sure you're going up. If not, eat 15 more grams of some simple sugar. If you're not going to have a small meal within the next 1-1.5 hours, then have a proper snack; something with protein and/or fat. It'll tie you over till the next meal.
Let us know how it goes with the tests. Cheers!
