Can insulin resistance cause feeling light headed, feeling faint, shakiness, and weakness?

Maybe: I would be much more worried about hypoglycemia in a diabetic with those symptoms. Seek medical attention and get the blood sugar tested. Remember that too low a blood sugar can be very dangerous. Insulin resistance describes physiologic changes that occur in type 2 (primarily) diabetics. ...Read more

Waking up everyday feeling faint, giddy, lightheaded and shaky- is this hypoglycemia? I'm an otherwise healthy female! thanks.

Some thoughts..: What you're describing can be caused by dozens of things: blood pressure, blood sugar, thyroid, hormone changes with pregnancy. I've had patients really concerned about low blood sugar with symptoms of lightheadedness. I tell them if they have a glass of orange juice and the symptoms go away, it could be the sugar. Some people will even check their sugars with a glucometer. Best of luck! ...Read more

Spoken to your doc?: If you suffer from epilepsy then, you do not want to be skipping meals or being sick with some infection that can be treated. That could make your seizure disorder respond in a negative way (i.e. trigger seizures). Are you certain of your pregnancy status with these symptoms? If you've just recently missed a period and are sexually active then, you may wish to perform a home test. ...Read more

My blood sugar fasting is usually around 70-100 but I experience symptoms like shakiness, sweating and dizziness.  I'm waiting for a dr app.

Does eating help?: If those symptoms go away when you eat food or drink a sugar-containing fluid, then they might still be due to low blood sugar. While waiting for appt, try cutting down on refined carbohydrates and sugar: sweets, white bread, processed cereals. These cause a spike in blood sugar and then a spike in insulin, which makes your blood sugar drop. Could cause your symptoms. Eat high-protein food instead ...Read more

You also might have a bladder infection. ...Read more

Sugar level 78 doctor at ER told me it was low gave me a 5 hours glucose test. is 78 low? whent to the ER cause of shakiness dizziness BP was 166/82

Glucose level: A glucose of 78 is normal, not low. The only exception is in the case of diabetics who are poorly controlled. If a diabetic's blood sugar is running 300 all the time, a sudden fall to 78 would feel like "hypoglycemia". ...Read more
