Intermittent tachycardia with blood pressure changes every few hours, looking like but is not hypoglycemia, needing diagnosis and treatment.....?
More information would help clarify how to solve the problem:
The combination of recurrent tachycardia, "unstable" blood sugar and blood pressure, "all the symptoms of diabetes" but normal HgbA1c, "reactive hypoglycemia" and symptoms occurring every three hours, and atypical sleep apnea.
The differential diagnosis would include:
*Insulinoma (insulin secreting tumor) producing recurant hypoglycemia with tachycardia)
*Pheochrocytoma (adrenaline secreting tumor often of the adrenal glands)
*polyendocrine syndome encompassing either or both with possible hypophysitis with ovarian hypofunction or autoimmune oopheritis.
You may have been screened for insulinoma but remember that common screening test use monoclonal antibodies which will not pick up proinsulin.
To assist in diagnosis - providing more detail to the phrases in paragraph 1 including labs and then consultation with an endocrinologist would be an appropriate next step. ...Read more

No: To eat foods containing chemicals known to be similar (in effect) to the body's hormones is usually a bad idea. The dosing would vary each day because the foods never contain the same amount of chemical from meal to meal, people don't eat the same meals each day, foods from different farms have different levels of chemicals, etc... The only way to get exact amounts is by approved, purified drugs. ...Read more
Progesterone sources: Progesterone comes from both the ovary and adrenal gland as sources, and if a MD has determined that it is too high then the adrenal gland should be evaluated for a cause. The ovaries provide high progesterone normally during pregnancy and rarely produce a progesterone secreting tumor, but it should be ruled out. ...Read more

Inner lining: Estrogens produced by the ovaries during the first half of the menstrual cycle, before ovulation, make the inner lining of the uterus grow to provide a nice cushion for a fertilized egg. After ovulation the ovaries start producing progesterone which transforms the inner lining into that nice cushion. When there is no pregnancy, both hormone levels drop at the end of the cycle and menses commence. ...Read more
