    Hypoglycemia or Insulin Resistance?

    Hello -- just discovered this forum. The past few days I've been attempting to get a diagnosis after battling these symptoms for half my life.
    I saw a new doctor at a clinic I've gone to for 20 years. I described my hypoglycemic symptoms and she agreed quickly, scheduling me with and RE 2 weeks out. Symptoms are:
    Shaky hands (Strangers ask if I'm ok)
    Tired all the time
    Anxiety
    Depression
    Several crashes throughout the day, especially after eating. I've been known to raid peanut butter to "feel better"
    Weight gain AND loss is easy
    I crave the sugary white breads and carbs
    My fasting glucose tests are always normal. I finally decided to see what my glucose was when I was having an almost-going-to-faint spell.
    Normal fasting: High 90s
    Today, before dinner: 66
    2 hours after dinner: 92
    2 hours after that (10:30pm) 79....and I was feeling it.
    My doctors refuse to run anything but a TSH (no T3/T4) and it's on the VERY low end inside the range. They are adament it's not my thyroid. Apparently they did order an insulin test, which he (the doctor I saw today) believes will reveal its insulin resistance.
    How is this insulin resistance? Aside from the point I need to lose a few pounds (I was injured and on crutches for past 4 months.) Can someone explain how I should take that seriously and how my crashes after food relate to insulin resistance? Or.....if I should absolutely not?
    Thanks for the help!

    Thanks for the help! From those number, you can rule out hypoglycemia. Better too looking for what is causing this.

    Your bg numbers look good. What makes you think you have diabetes? You will know more when you get your c-peptide result, but don't be surprised if it is normal. You might have to keep looking to find the source of your physical problems.
