    Dear tarannum91602,

    No, my friend, hypoglycaemia [hypoglycemia if you prefer the American spelling] is NOT a type of diabetes.

    Diabetics only experience hypoglycaemia due to medication(s) that they have taken in order to control their diabetes; if they are late/delayed in eating a meal; or they have undertaken exercise without making change to their medication intake.

    What you are experiencing MAY be hypoglycaemia but the ONLY way to know for sure is by testing your blood for it's sugar content at the time that you are experiencing these symptoms.

    Hypoglycaemia IS a separate condition which needs to be checked out by your doctor.  (There are a couple of different types of hypoglycaemia, and it depends on which type, if any, you have which will determine the treatment for it.)

    I wish you well, tarannum91602, and hope that you will see your doctor to get this checked out.

    Lots of Love and Light.

    If you fast (do not eat) this can cause all kinds of problems particularly if you are not used to it.

    I am diabetes Type 2. My blood sugar is usually high not low, but it does depend on when I test myself.

    If I test before a meal it will be lower than if I test a couple of hours afterwards.

    Best thing is to test at different times for a few days and then take an average of those tests.

    Take care and keep in touch
