what are the symptoms of reactive hypoglycemia/diabetes? — 2 Comments

  1. well, your hands and feet start shaking. your vision might get blurry and you might feel dizzy. If any of these symptoms occur, i’d advise you to see a doctor right away.

  2. One sided headaches used to be one of my symptoms

    Being unable to focus with both eyes open

    Shaky hands

    Sweating, but that usually doesn’t happen until my blood sugar is really low now

    I’ve never had blurry vision when I’m hypoglycemic, but that can be a symptom

    An almost uncontrollable desire just to go sleep – I think this is my body’s way of trying to conserve whatever glucose I have left in my blood for as long as possible

    The test is simple, use glucose meter to test your blood sugar. A lot more convenient and accurate than making urine specimen , dropping it into a test tube along with some water, dropping a Clinitest tablet into the test tube

    A glucose tolerance test is in a doctor’s office, laboratory, or hospital is usually done to determine if you are hypoglycemic or a type 2 diabetic. I’ve never had a glucose tolerance test done on me, I don’t think. I was diagnosed with type 1 when I was 26 months old

    Very often during the last 20 years or more, my only symptom of falling blood sugar is funny feeling in my stomach, which can be ignored way to easily. The one sided-headaches gradually disappeared during my thirties while the funny feeling in stomach gradually become the predominating initial symptom.

    One thing to be aware of, diabetes and hypoglycemia are very individualistic diseases. What works very well for one diabetic may not work at all for another. Another thing to be aware of is that diabetes evolves over long periods of time in a particular individual.

    Oh, I forgot after effects – fatigue, and cold hands and feet, somtimes chills. It can take 2 or more hours for me to completely recover from a very low blood (40 and lower mg/dcl) sugar episode There is a reason that it is called insulin shock. It is literally a shock to your body, similar to physically induced by trauma shock.

    I hope this helps.
