Normal sugar: You seem to be checking your sugar with a glucomoter frequently, why? A normal glucose is between 80-99 mg/dl. If you have chronic episodes of low glucose levels, go to and endocrinologist and ask to be evaluated for an insulinoma, which means you have a pancreas that is secreting Insulin at times when it is not needed.

Go see your Dr : And get checked for other medical conditions causing your dizziness and weakness like low blood pressure, inner ear/ thyroid problem. Low sugar is below 60.Normal fasting sugar is 60--99 mg/dl. http://m.diabetes.org/living-with-diabetes/treatment-and-care/blood-glucose-control/checking-your-blood-glucose.html. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/dizziness/ds00435/dsection=causes.
