Hello! I know I read somewhere years ago that having hypoglycemia increases your chances of developing diabetes later in life. is there any fact to this? I've been diagnosed with hypoglycemia for about
4 years. My mom has Type 2 diabetes. I also take steroids, and have for years. my GI usually tests my glocose level, but hasn't in awhile, since my meds can raise my blood sugar. I've got all the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes - I've lost 60+ pounds in a short period of time without trying, my vision has changed, I'm hungry but not gaining weight, peeing all the time, tired, cranky, thirsty, eye pain, etc.; my mother tells me that she was awoken last night to a voice telling her to make sure i was tested, so I will be tomorrow. But I know I thought there was a relation between being hypoglycemic and having diabetes.
