For many years now, and on a daily basis, I have suffered with what can only be described as severe symptoms of hypoglycaemia,. The symptoms come on very suddenly and I feel very weak, light-headed, shaky, sweaty, also very impatient and irritable, and, of course, cravings sweet foods high in carbohydrates.
I continue to feel unwell for many hours, even after eating the foods I described. In fact, a single attack just ruins the rest of my day.
This also affects my weight
I have been tested for diabetes but of course the results were negative. I DO NOT HAVE diabetes!!!!
So, what is my problem?
My question is: is it possible to produce too much insulin and, if so, is that a precursor on type 2 diabetes? And is insulin level, rather than sugar level, what the doctor should be testing?
And if insulin levels are too high, how does one bring them down and prevent further attacks?
I am 69 now and I cannot go on like that. It makes me depressed and almost suicidal.
Please can anyone out there help?
