I have experienced countless low blood sugars, without knowing my symptoms were the result of low blood sugar. After eating a healthy breakfast around 8 or 9 am, usually 1/2 cup oatmeal with a big scoop of peanut butter, I have experienced a racing heart, cold sweats, nausea, light-headedness, and usually a terrible headache that I previously thought was a migraine causing all of the symptoms. Later I thought it was caused by sinus pressure from allergies which led to the migraine-like headaches... While another friend thought my symptoms were similar to her own panic-attacks, however I certainly did not feel anxious or panicked - outside of my racing heart beat.
As I feel I eat quite well, what would cause these low blood sugars? I have always been active (sports, jogging, hiking) and I do not eat white flour, nor are there processed foods in my diet to any significant amount which may cause a reactive drop in blood glucose.
I have had my blood sugars tested first thing in the am during a 'Live like your diabetic' week where I was always told to go eat something and yes, obviously I was hungry and ready to eat. Then recently I had my blood glucose tested at about 10am (After eating breakfast about 8 or 830) and my blood glucose was only 60... As that is low even for a fasting blood glucose, should I be concerned? I know that high blood glucose is unhealthy, but what are the consequences of my lows?
Thankyou for your help!
