I get dizzy during or right after a meal where I eat more sugar than usual (eg a piece of cake or a cookie). Should I be worried?
Probably not: Probably not. You don't usually feel high blood sugar unless its super high. Your body is just probably making a little extra Insulin to compensate for the blood sugar spike.

Likely due to an Insulin surge. A glucose tolerance test - if not already done - can more accurately reflect what actually happens after a sugar load is earlier ingested. Fasting morning glucose, the standard test, may miss this.
Altering your diet may help prevent episodes. Frequent small snacks would help prevent the dizziness. If symptomatic, ingest candy or juice as soon as possible. ...Read more

Have your family doctor check you glucose level in the morning when you are fasting (no food for 8 or so hours). Also you can check your sugar when you are symptomatic. Good luck. ...Read more
