... Which I never use to. I get hungry then begin to feel shaky. I eat and still feel a little shaky. After an hour or so I get a headache. I am over weight about 20 pounds because I stopped smoking and gained extra weight. My Dr ordered a Hba1c test CBA CMA lipid BH. Duno what tests they are
Hypoglycemia is high blood sugar and diabetic is low. My father has hypoglycemia and I believe I have it too. Less severe cases can sometimes be controlled by diet.I have to eat smaller meals several times a day. If I don't I get shaky and lightheaded. I don't know about the tests you mentioned. I assume it is levels they are checking for a blood test. My doctor ruled out. diabetes in a urine sample. Hope you find out what's causing your symptoms soon and hope this info helped
I think lucy has it confused. Hypoglycemia is low blood sugar and Hyperglycemia is high blood sugar (diabetes). I don't know what those tests are either, other than the lipids. To diagnose either high or low blood sugar, a glucose tolerance test is needed.
Being Diabetic means that the body doesn't produce enough insulin to use the sugar in the body and results in high blood sugar levels and high sugar levels in the urine. This is dangerous for the brain and the kidneys.
Hypoglycemia means that when a person eats the body produces too much insulin and that causes the blood sugar levels to drop too quickly resulting in low blood sugar levels which is also dangerous.
Hypoglycemia can be control by diet just as early diabetes can. Simple carbohydrates are turned into sugar very easily so one needs to eat complex carbohydrates and enough protein to help regulate blood sugar levels.
I hope this helps.
Hello ChaCha. The symptoms you recently described are the classic symptoms of diabetes. Your blood sugars may be dangerously high. This causes shakes, sweating, thirst, dizziness, mood changes,to name a few things. Get an appoint,net with your doctor for the follow up with the blood tests. They are very important and will tell your story best.
The A1c tells how high your blood sugars have been over the past months. The CBC tells how your blood is working and if there is infection, or other problems. I think some of your letters are a bit confused, unless you are copying them from something. Have you done the blood draw? The numbers with the reports will tell you a lot more about this. Your doctor will discuss each one with you. Hold tight. These things are well known for finding out your condition and what needs to be done.
Stop eating all those carbs as they raise blood sugar quickly and then once used you will crash and be miserable. Start the reading and let's see what they find out.
Hypo glycemic is low blood sugar. Yes it will cause dizziness, and shakiness.
Hyper glycemic is high blood sugar. This causes sleepiness and if not treated can lead to coma.
Hypoglycemia is low blood sugar and diabetes is when the body can't control is blood sugar levels and can be too high or low depending on the situation.
Hypoglycemia is low blood sugar(glucose). This means you need to eat or drink something. If you had hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar (glucose) then, if severe enough you would need insulin. I know it can be confusing, old school suggests you keep jelly beans, or a coke, or orange juice close at hand, in case your blood sugar drops too low and you could pass out. Please take care and hope this helps.
