Hypoglycemic Insulin Reaction In Children
My older sister has t2dm, is taking oral hypoglycemics, but is still finding her bgls are rising as high as 15 fasting. Should she be taking insulin?
Quite possibly: 15 (270 mg/dl) is quite high and she needs something changed, whethe it be higher doses of her diabetes pills, adding more pills, calibrating her blood sugar meter, adding insulin, she needs the sugars to improve. She should also meetwith a dietician to improve her diet, bc drastic bg changes can come from cutting down on foods that sneak sugar into your day (syrups, candy, bread, soda, ketchup). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What causes insulin resistance besides obesity? Im not overweight at all, have been hypoglycemic since teens, now new diagnosis of insulin resistance.

No: In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal. A glucose tolerance test (if you've had one) is not and never will be a valid diagnostic test for hypoglycemia. Don't waste your money o GTT or any fad diets of treatments. Lose wt if heavy. ...Read more
