Let's talk blood sugar

I'm a non diabetic, but I have noticed over the past few months or so that my blood sugar seems drop quite a bit in the afternoons. A family member suggested that I pick up one of those self testing meters and keep a track on my blood sugar when I feel like it's dropping low.

For example I was feeling a bit shaky and anxious earlier and it had dropped to 70. (That's the lowest number I've ever had it read). I drank some 100% fruit juice I keep in the fridge at work, tested it again 15 minutes later, and it was up over 100.

Is this a normal thing that I'm putting too much thought into, or should I speak to my doctor about it? I tend to be on the more anxious side, and I notice even very subtle changes in my body.

For the record I had labs done about a month ago and everything was normal.

Thanks for any and all input.

Yep a blood sugar of 20 wife called 911 paramedics got a mariano rivera like save.
Dr. Oz also spouts pseudoscience or outright quackery in more than 2/3 of his pronouncements .

However, everyone does hang out in a slightly different area. If you ever check your labs, "normal" is the baseline normal value for 95% of the population. That woman could be part of the five percent who runs low and is ok (my heart is like that), but it's always good to remember the averages and consider your symptoms. In the OP's case, if he's feeling symptomatic and it's happening more often, ingesting about 15g of simple carbs will benefit him.

I don't consume any sugar at all. No pop , no candy, no fruit. No Beer (for now). down 17 pounds now in 14 days. Keto rocks. Eating one nice meal a day and no hunger cravings. It was 7pm before I decided to eat last night and I started to just say **** it and skip the day. Blood pressure is now normal. In fact I just checked it after my workout and it was a little low. 107/79. Not taking anymore meds after that last episode almost killed me. **** pharmacies!

My older brother is fat and diabetic. 2 years ago he mentioned some of his symptoms, including frequent urinating and I said I did that, thirsty all the time, so he let me use his blood sugar monitor to test my blood sugar after eating some pancakes. I was over 300 blood sugar. Went to doctor and she put me on metformin, my A1C was 10.5.

Over the next two years, I let my diet and medications lapse. I was drinking soda and having too many desserts, I have a big sweet tooth. About a month ago, I started feeling foot pain and numbness. I read about diabetic neuropathy and it scared the crap out of me, so I decided to make big changes. I started a keto diet along with intermittent fasting. I checked my readings of blood sugars before, and I was 200-250, and within a few days it dropped between 100-140, and today I had two readings in the 90's.

Basically now I eat close to zero carbs from anything except vegetables. Avoid all grain and sugar and fast carbs. It's not the worst, there are tons of home recipes that use great tasting fats like butter and creme cheese and meat and spices, which I can have a lot of. For take out I get rotisserie chicken from Walmart, subway salad, cheeseburgers minus the bun, 5 guys has a lettuce wrap for instance.

For fasting I skip breakfast and don't eat lunch until 2 or 3, then I have dinner around 6 or 7 so I have a 4-5 hour feeding window. I've done a 4 day fast and plan on doing a 5-7 day fast on my vacation coming up Labor Day week.

I agree I think he's a jerk. I was yelling at the tv that she is going to bottom out while she drives home.
On a some what related note people should be careful who smoke marijuana.
Marijuana makes the symptoms of high blood sugar not feel as bad which is dangerous. Had blood sugars of 300 and I felt normal. On days I didn't do any 300 would feel the way it is supposed to tired insatiable thirst and hunger.

On a lighter note if the dr wants you to visit with the diabetic educator lady don’t fall for her pranks. She is helpful in lots of diet tips and things you need to pay attention to but if she says ok let’s assume all of your fingertips are sore and you need to quickly check your levels and she says ok sport whip it out and we’re gonna prick the tip of your pecker don’t fall for it like I did dude

Hypo can be dangerous for Type II diabetics. Be careful. FWIW, in most cases if your A1C is over 9 they'll start you on insulin, because Metformin can't lower your A1C enough.

And when you say labs, did the doctors measure your A1C? It's a far more accurate measure of glucose control over the last three months than a one-time blood glucose test.

Trying to pull up my labs now to see if A1C was measured. I don't think I'm hanging around 70 regularly. This was a pretty extreme case where I could tell it was very low. Usually I'm somewhere between 78-94 between meals.

I don't actually see A1C listed anywhere on my latest lab results. Unless it is named something else on there?

If your job is physical that can make your sugar go low esp if you skip meals. Try to find a pattern. Are you skipping meals ? Stress actually raises blood sugar but low blood sugar and a little anxiety tossed in can give you that out of it feeling.
I don't skip meals. This dip actually came about 2 hours after I had eaten lunch.

My job is an office job. Our office was extremely warm today and I went out to smoke shortly before this happened.

Was actually feeling some stress due to some reports I was working on before it hit.

I'm 29, and very slightly overweight. Blood pressure runs good. No health problems overall except high triglicerides (which my doctor thinks is a genetic thing)

I also don't drink anything with sugar in it throughout the day. Usually I'll have a couple diet soda's in the AM followed up by lots of water

It might be called HbA1c, glycated hemoglobin test, or glycohemoglobin.
