I have posted here a couple of times in the past about my hypoglycemia issues. I am having the lows really bad right now. I'm in a constant state of the shakes, jitters, fatigue, dizziness, etc. All the symptoms. It doesn't matter what I eat, I can't keep my glucose levels up. I'm maybe good for about 20 minutes, then I'm back down again. I can go for about an hour on a Wendy's double burger and fries.... That's it. I'm eating lots of protein, no sugar ( or very little), whole grains, complex carbs, soy. I am scared and just feeling crappy. I was tested for diabetes about a year ago. Nothing. I do check my blood when I'm in a low and sometimes it gets to the low 3's on the Acucheck monitor. Other times, I'll have the symptoms and my blood monitors at normal ranges, in the 5's.
I know I need to see my endocrinologist and my family doctor about this. I'm making an appointment asap. But in the meantime, does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do? I can't do any fasting blood work. I'd end up in an ambulance. LOL. I'm so tired of eating every hour. It's taken over my life. Plus I'm gaining weight.... Just feeling like I"m at the end of my rope.
Thanks for your thoughts,
