What to do if i know what to do if my blood sugars go too low, but what about if they go too high?
Blood sugars: Do not go too low unless you are on diabetes medication or have end stage cancer, kidney or liver disease, etc. Your body protects you from low glucose.

My blood sugar is too low a few hours after meals, but my doctor says its not hypoglycemia even though I have all the symptoms. What else could it be?
Doctor wrong?: Eat only meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry and low starch veggies, drink only water. In other words avoid all carbs, carbs will only briefly raise your sugar levels and then your Insulin levels. The fats in the meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry will act like a "log on your metabolic fire" to keep your blood sugar stable for hours without raising insulin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not sure what you are taking, but it is likely keeping your sugar lower. I would suggest follow up with doc to discuss it. Good luck. ...Read more
Nothing: 66 by finger stick is normal. I have never seen a true case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to you sugar returning to normal. A glucose tolerance test (if you've had one) is not and never will be a valid diagnostic test for hypoglycemia. Low glucose only ocurrs when treating diabetes, cancer, renal/liver disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
