A1c 4.9 while on low carb diet passed glucose tolerance test go to bed sugars at 100 or lower wake up 8 hrs later sugar 110 or so why & am i prediabet?
We're all Prediabeti: As we grow older, we all tend to become Insulin resistant to some degree or other. Consequently, our sugars tend to rise, along with our insulin. Insulin is the hormone that causes sugar to enter our cells, where the excess is stored as fat. I recommend a low carb diet to everyone, and also recommend that just about everyone over 30 will benefit from metformin (an Insulin receptor sensitizer). ...Read more
Have hunger pains not hungry what does it mean eat then and go away then it comes back like 30 40 minutes later?
Think gastritis : The symptoms you are describing are common in patients with peptic ulcer disease or significant inflammation of the stomach. The discomfort is often misinterpreted as hunger. Eating food buffers the stomach acid and provides temporary relief however stomach acid production increases resulting in worsening pain 30 minutes or so after meals. The fact that you take ibuprofen makes this more likely. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hypoglycemia: Hypoglycemia usually takes a few minutes. The hypoglycemia is caused by a reaction of Insulin spike to glucose load.

Can hyperthyroid cause low blood sugar? I get bouts of dizziness if I don't eat every 2 hours or upon waking. Eating helps a little but doesn't resolv
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
I often eat my last meal after work but sometimes fall asleep right after. Will that make me become fat? Is it better to just exclude this meal?
Listen to your body: If you distribute meals through the day, eating a meal before going to sleep is not likely to cause weight gain. Try having your biggest meal before going to work. Be sure to get at least 60 minutes of fun exercise (try jump roping) every day spread out through the day.. ...Read more
Heard sugar & simple carbs turn into same thing once digested. why then do i feel sick after eating much sugar, but not after eating much wheat/rice?
It could be: the rate at which these substances are metabolized. Once in your digestive tract sugar hydrolyzes into fructose and glucose. Glucose starts out as a carbohydrate but is quickly stored as a fat. Rice and wheat are made up of more complex chains of carbohydrates with fewer simple sugars. The effect of these foods on raising blood sugar may not be as rapid as with simple sugar. Hope this helps:) ...Read more
