Every morning and afternoon I get really dizzy light headed and have no idea where I am. Is it low blood sugar?
No: In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia.

Adjust insulin/food: Assuming you have type 1 dm, chronically low blood sugar means that you're over insulinizing for your specific requirements. Discuss with your doctor how to manage that. Make sure you're not just eating carbs. Mixed meals are best. If you're exercising, then go low, you may still need less insulin. Someone needs to go over your total care regimen with you in detail. ...Read more

Haven't walked in years today is ny fourth day waking and at the end of my mile I started to feel real weird dizzy kinda checked my blood sugar 109?
Start slower?: Obvious question is WHY haven't you walked in years until today? If you've been wheelchair or bedbound for that long then, to me I think walking a mile at a time is starting a bit too ambitiously. Has your cardiac status been tested? I know you're young but I still believe a stress test may do a body good in this case if you insist on the mile a day. I would be more conservative with distance. ...Read more
