Fasting Cause Hypoglycemia
It should not: When your pancreas and liver are functioning properly, fasting should not cause hypoglycemia. If fasting causes hypoglycemia in you, you should be seen by your endocrinologist for further evaluation. Frequently we find there wasn't true hypoglycemia and something else was happening. ...Read more
Hypoglycemia. 5 hour fasting glucose test caused episode, low blood sugar and insulin at time of episode. Insulinoma ruled out. What else could it be?
Fasting glucose 36mg/dl w/ fainting spells, after meal 82mg/dl, A1c 5.5 (math err?). Can a 8mm adrenal cyst cause hypoglycemia? Also-abd pain, acnes.
You don't: Have hypoglycemia after meals, as it's not a disease and doesn't exist in the absense of diabetes medication, cancer, end-stage liver or kidney disease, GI surgery, etc. If it's a finger-stick it's not accurate in that range. Your adrenal cyst is benign and has nothing to do with your complaints. Cyst should be followed over time. Glucose should be ignored ; it's a natural response to your obesity. ...Read more

Yes: A fasting glucose of 6.0 is in the "impaired glucose tolerance" range, 7.8 is in the diabetes range.

Severe symptoms of hypoglycemia but all tests blood tests including fasting blood tests show that there's apparently nothing rong? Wats rong with me?!
I have reactive hypoglycemia, is it ok for my fasting glucose to be sitting at 6.5 to 7.0 mmol with this condition?
No: In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal. Don't waste your money on a GTT or any fad diets of treatments. Lose wt if heavy. Remember, glucose meters are not very accurate in the low normal to hypoglycemic ranges. ...Read more
