Hypoglycemia Symptoms To Look Out For & Ways To Naturally Treat Them

Uncontrolled glucose levels are one of the most common health problems in the world.

    I have been diagnosed as being prediabetic. I have watched my diet pretty carefully, but now its seems I'm dizzy most of the day starting about three weeks ago and gradually getting worse. I can actually feel a head change when the dizziness starts. Eating makes no difference. Any ideas?

How did the doctor determine you were prediabetic? I'm presuming by some blood tests, but what were the results? Maybe it's not the blood sugar at all. Are you taking any other meds? How is your blood pressure? Have you told your doctor?

    Lanie, thanks for replying. I was diagnosed about 2 months ago. Only told to limit my carb intake and to exercise, that other measures where not needed yet. Never used any tests. This is all very new to me. Have a drs appt. Oct.17th. I am 58 years old, but this dizziness is very annoying. Am on celexa and lisinepro for depression and blood pressure, but never had any problems with them and have been taking them for awhile. Please reply. Thanks
