Blood sugar should rise to max value a few hours after eating, then taper off a few hours.

If its lower your "insulin system" is not working correctly, and your hypo-sugar and need further investigation as to why this is happening. This is why they have sugar tabs in the diabetic isle- for low sugar emergency use after self test and symptom feel.

8 Hrs fast it should be less than 100, but more than...maybe..70(?)

Walmart has cheap complete test kits, $25 for 50 glucose prick tests. Highly suggested to note your blood sugar patterns vs going to the Dr now and then.

It's likely that your pancreas is being affected by these infections - it happened to me too. The pancreas is what controls our blood sugar levels.

For the weight you keep losing, do be sure to eat healthy carbs and lots of protein and eat many times a day, in small meals (more like snacks in my mind). This is how I recovered when I was too thin - I was 35 lbs under weight and entered malnutrition, but managed to come back from that.

I always say, don't let a doctors ignorance or willful ignorance stop you from caring for yourself! Find another doctor or do your research to find ways to help yourself.

I see your metric, obviously I was refering to US measurements.

If your sugar drops, thats wrong.

Self learn about it, and find a Dr who understands this. To bad we have to be our own Drs today.

From what I found, no.

"The insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) receptor is a protein found on the surface of human cells.....
"IGF-1 plays an important role in growth and continues to have anabolic effects in adults – meaning that it can induce hypertrophy of skeletal muscle and other target tissues."

I don't usually like using Wikipedia, but it was the only thing I could find fairly quickly that explained this in a more simple fashion (no medical 'speak'):
/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insulin-like_growth_factor_1_receptor

Be sure to bring this up with the doctor - it's important that they not only recognize this issue, but address it.
