Blood Sugar 911

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. Christmas Scare It should have been a pleasant night. It was the Christmas season, and we had just returned from our annual Christmas trip to Grandma’s house. We were sitting in our living room, watching a videotape that was one of my sons’ Christmas presents. I wasn’t having fun. It was happening again. Less than three hours after we had eaten supper I could feel that cold chill on my arms and those jittery telltale indicators that my blood-sugar levels were falling way too low.

    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?
    Maybe I have these symptoms from being low on cortisol vs being low in blood sugar? I get these hypoglycemic feelings at least a couple of times per day and have to eat to feel better (and eating a combination of complex carbs/sugars/protein helps). But I test my blood sugar regularly and it never falls below normal range - in fact it is at the high end of normal.
    Any thoughts/input?
    Thanks,
    Anna

    Yes...
    Low BP can also cause those symptoms. So can low oxygen!
    Does "Couple of times a day" actually correlate with low BG tests? Remember that levels can change quick.
