Possible diabetes or am I imagining things?!
Question: Possible diabetes or am I imagining things!?
I'm 28, female!. I'm active and eat reasonably well!. I've been told I'm a borderline diabetic!. I have a monitor that I use to keep watch on my sugars!. I have been really exhausted this last month, been haveing mood swings (mostly crying), becomeing really shaky, and having acute hunger pains!. My sugars run 50-120 fasting or after eating!. I also, have PCOS, high chloresteral!. My mother was a severe diabetic!. I had this same problem last December and in April when the doctors had me on Metformin (for the PCOS)!. I got to the point I could barely keep my eyes open!. I don't want this to get as serious as the last two times!. Any Ideas would be helpful!.!.!.!.!.Thanks!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
I'm trying to figure out why someone with blood glucose readings of between 50-120 fasting or after eating would be on metformin, which lowers glcose readings!. A glucose reading of 50 is very low, and could cause mood swings, hunger pains, shakiness, etc!. A reading of 120 if done after eating (1!.5 hours after the first bite is the standard time) is a big low but in normal range!. If you have a monitor, test your blood sugar at regular times and when you start having the symptoms you've described!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
Get regular blood tests, and also keep a check on your own blood by taking the sugar samples from your blood on the blood glucose reader!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
