Are you on insulin?: Hi. Unless you take insulin or have a vanishingly rare genetic syndrome, your "hypoglycemia" is not real, and has nothing to do with blood sugar.

I took a blood sugar test due to having symptoms related to hypoglycemia for several months. It was 69mg/dL, is this low? What should I do now?

"Hypoglycemia" used to be a common fad diagnosis, but it isn't a real diagnosis in those cases, and those people's symptoms have nothing to do with blood sugar levels. Look elsewhere! ...Read more

I have hypoglycemia and I can be 55-65 with no symptoms and sometimes feel better with low blood sugar. What can cause this?
At risk for diabetes: Whenever hypoglycemia occurs, it implies that there's a problem w/ how much insulin ur body makes (in this case too much @ the wrong time). Oddly enough, this means in the future your pancreas may "run out" of insulin when it needs it: diabetes. Consider this "pre-diabetes" or a diabetes risk factor. TTYD about dietary changes and ketogenic diets. It's good that u r w/o symptoms; hope it continues ...Read more
