I keep having what i believe are hypo's. I feel very shaky and weak, sweating palms, heart rate speeds up, confused, and like i am going to collapse. Usually if i have a sugary drink or a chocolate bar i start to feel a little bit better after 10 minutes or so. But recently this is not working so well. I have had 2 blood tests in the past that have shown i am not diabetic and am currently awaiting the results of a 3rd blood test. I am morbidly obese. Is it possible to still be diabetic even if fasting blood tests are saying i am not? Are there other tests that can be done? Please help.

Welcome to the forum
anyone , diabetic or not can suffer from low blood sugar, if for example, you haven't eaten for a while.
Best bet is to see gp when the results of the latest test is back.

2/4/12 HBA1C 5.9% (42)
3/7/12 HBA1c 5.44% (36)
18/11/11 Cholestrol 4.2 - HDL 1.6, LDL 2.1, Trig 1.2, Ratio 2.63

Your doctor should have given you some indication what is causing these problems, or at least referred you to have a oral glucose tolerance test.
I would return to the GP and let them know that you are very concerned and the stress is not helping.
Good luck and welcome to the forum.
