I'm not diabetic but I have some odd symptoms and I'm wondering if anyone can provide some insights.
About an hour or two after eating, I'm experiencing severe symptoms which include exhaustion, shakiness, palpitations and difficulty concentrating or focussing. I frequently am unable to stay awake. These symptoms gradually wear off but it takes some time.
My mum has diabetes so I've been getting her to check my blood sugars. My fasting bloods are usually between 5.1 and 5.3 - after eating, even only an hour or after a meal my blood sugars aren't elevated, if anything they're marginally lower at 5.0-5.1. This is the case even if I've eaten a meal which is high is sugar and refined carbs.
What I'm wanting to know is whether not experiencing a rise in blood sugar following a meal is normal? I recently had a blood test done as I have Vitamin B12 deficiency and nothing else showed up as abnormal.
Looking online I think my symptoms seem to match post prandial syndrome but I'll obviously go and talk to my GP. It's the blood sugars that I'm curious about - I thought someone in here might be able to let me know whether experiencing no rise was normal?
Thanks all, much appreciated
