CBN.com - After experiencing periods of increased jittery nerves, violent trembling, and fainting – all signs of severely low blood sugar – author Dennis Pollock was on a mission to change his diet.

    Hi All,
    Is it possible with AI to get hypoglycemic type symptoms (feeling sick, headachy, slight confusion, slight dizziness), but not be hypoglycemic - that is, blood sugar shows in normal range?

    Any thoughts/input?

    Does "Couple of times a day" actually correlate with low BG tests? Remember that levels can change quick.
