Hi dm.... I shouldn't have said your numbers look great. I just reread all your posts and I'm afraid to say that it does look like there may be something going on with your metabolism.
The optimal blood glucose range is 4-6.7 (72-120). A non-diabetic will, with some exceptions, almost always fall within this range when tested. Someone who experiences levels outside this range, is suspected of having some kind of difficulty metabolizing blood sugars. Diagnosis of Hypoglycemia, Diabetes, and other similar diseases/disorders can only be determined by a combination of: blood tests, C-Peptide, Glucose Tolerence Test (GTT), Glucose meter readings, assessment of symtoms, patient history and lifestyle assessment. All are necessary considerations when detemining the next, best course of action - one that is unique to you.
With the symptoms you've been having, it makes sense to me that your doctor might refer you to a Dietician or Nutritionist. For anyone that has difficulty managing their blood sugars, proper diet and exercise must be followed. A Dietician would help set up a good lifestyle plan, tailored to you and your requirements. You need to develope a plan for eating so as to avoid those nasty lows and you need to understand what to do when they do happen.
I think it was mentioned in one of your other posts but, I'll say again... when you are feeling low/shaky/etc., do a finger test and "fix" the low (if it is low) with some fast-acting sugar. Test again after 15 minutes to make sure it's going up to acceptable range. If you're not planning on eating a meal within the next 1-1.5 hours, then have a small snack - one with carbs, proteins, and fats.
Keep us posted!
