A 44-year-old female asked:
i didn't eat for a few hours and felt sweaty & shaky, then better after eating- is this diabetes or just low blood sugar from waiting too long to eat?

Need labs: Seems kinda severe to have sweating and shakiness just from a few hours without food. Need fasting labs to rule out diabetes, insulinoma, or just your normal reaction to fasting. See a doctor to get check up and labs.
