More common answer if younger (<40) and healthy is volume depletion / dehydration. Tank up on fluids. Then, if recurs, time to see a dr. ...Read more

I'm always feeling dizzy, nauseous. Lightheaded. I took my blood sugar test after eating a goid meal was 5.7. Is it normal or too low? Blood tests r good

This and your symptoms could mean low sugar or hypoglycemia and it could have been much lower before you ate. It's a good idea to see a doctor right away for a fasting sugar test and diet management. Best of luck. ...Read more
