Doctor insights on:
Yes, but only: If you have diabetes and are on an incorrect dose of medication. Otherwise, there is no such thing as hypoglycemia in the absence of end-stage cancer, kidney or liver disease, or prior stomach or GI surgery. The diagnosis of hypoglycemia is made frequently and incorrectly in many people. It is not really hypoglycemia, and not dangerous but a normal body reaction if you're obese. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not sure question: The body has built in mechanisms that hopefully work when we need them to like waking when blood sugar too low, blood pressure to high, temperature flutuates too much. This is a serious problem. If becoming hypoglycemic adjustments need to be made with med regimen during the day/evening. Talk with dr. ...Read more
Hypoglycemia: Hypoglycemia usually takes a few minutes. The hypoglycemia is caused by a reaction of Insulin spike to glucose load. Try protein with sugar or a fat, this should help if hypoglycemia is the problem. If the problem is truly happening seconds after eating it may be more of an allery to what you are eating with the sugar, or some type of digestive reaction. ...Read more
fasting insulin 76pmol/l
after 75gOral glucose-
1hr-insulin-849pmol/l . 2 hr-864pmol/l
glucose fast 5.4mmol/l
Time to get serious: You have normal glucose tolerance. Your fasting and 2 hr glu is not quite at the level of "impaired". Your insulin levels are on the high side, suggesting insulin resistance. Now is the time to start getting your weight under control, proper diet, and physical activity. Talk to your doctor about your particular situation. ...Read more

Fasting insulin is 30uu even after metformin 1000-not diabetic. -random insulin was 55uu. doc says its insulin resistance.can it be insulinoma?
Glucose fasting 80, 60min 168, 120min 119. Insulin fasting 5.25, 60min 42.36, 120min 34.47. HbA1c 5,2%. Impaired glucose tolerance/insulin resistance?
Reactive hypo or insulinoma?FBS-98mg/dl ,fasting insulin-13.feel shaky ever 4-5 hrs but sugar will be arnd 100.30yrOld. CT scan n Ultra sound normal.
GTT: Have you had a 4 to 6 hour glucose tolerance test? Occasionally it shows a spike in the blood sugar which causes a release of insulin and then the blood sugar drops too low instead of stopping at normal: occasionally the sugar goes very high but d:rops to normal and both these reactions can cause symptoms of shakes, weakness,etc. An endocrinologist or diabetologist can advise you best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi.My fasting bg 96 mg/l, insuline 2, 42 miu/l, hba1c% 3, 85%, c-peptide 0, 71 ng/ml (my lab`s ref range for c-pep: 0, 78-5, 19).Is my c-peptide too low?Thx
Normal: All of these results are normal. The c-peptide is of limited value. It can help in the diagnosis of type 1 diabetes if the blood sugar is high. Your say that you have type 2 diabetes and are taking metformin/vildagliptin but have a bmi of 15.9. I would seriously question the diagnosis of type 2 diabetes, and would get an opinion from an endocrinologist. ...Read more
What can cause low t3, (liothyronine) hypoglycemia, hypokalemic periodic paralysis, weakness, jaundice in hands, extreme fatigue, hot flashes, numbness, bradycardia ?
Sounds complex: This is a perfect question for HealthTap Prime, cuz each of these Sx need follow-up questions. 1st, low T3 (liothyronine) but what's the free T4? Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis is associated w/ hypothyroidism. Do u have diabetes? Adrenal gland being affected? U seem to have some autoimmune phenomenon including jaundice (hepatitis). Does lupus run in ur family? Very strange mix of symptoms. Talk 2 a doc for Diagn ...Read more
Diabetic pt allready having polyuria so why given diuresis medicen? (having htn and diabetis mellitse)
Nope: Those are excellent numbers, even going to a little low. Diabetes is not a concern until your fasting glucose starts going over 100, and it isn't called diabetes until higher than that. A1c would also be much higher (6.5% or above is diabetes, 5.7-6.4% is increased risk, 4-5.6% is normal). Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Pattern for 4+ years. Early wake up ~ 5 am no symptoms. Out of bed by 7 am, anxious, jittery, irritated, fades by 3 pm. Why? Eat right, not hypog.
"Wired and Tired": A clinical profile i often encounter is the person who is simultaneously wired (anxious) and fatigued. Difficult to treat because it is nearly impossible from ssxs alone to identify the biochemical imbalances at play. In such persons I am likely to obtain, in addition to the usual blood lab tests, salivary cortisol and sex hormone levels and urinary neurotransmitter levels. ...Read more

Hoarse voice. Numbness in neck. Hard to swallow or speak. Hypog related? Bg 95 b4 eating dinner. Bg 156, 40 min later. How? I'm supposed to be hypog
Amylase and lipase both slightly elevated. Left shift seen on cbc. (h neut. L. Lymp) eating =adrenaline surges, dizzy, elev. Hr, hypogly symp cause?
Too complicated: Don't make too much of the symptoms as presented. Not sure these things are related. Cysts are interesting but may be benign, BP seems to display normal variation. Would have to see hypoglycemia to believe it. All in all you will likely need a local doc to put this all together in a coherent picture. May represent anxiety. ...Read more
