Hi, I am new here. I just wanted to Ask a question because there seems to be so much conflicting information online. I have just had a blood sugar reading of 2.9 and want to shed some light on it. I have not been diagnosed with diabetes. However my Dad and most of his family do have or have had diabetes. I have recently been given a blood glucose meter by a friend and some test strips. This is because I often feel weird if I am overly hungry and just wanted to see if my sugar was low. I also have been having a few other potential symptoms such as frequent urination, sweats etc... I have only tested a few times and generally from what i can make out the readings seem ok. Fasting in the morning it has been 4.6, and 2 hours after eating it has been 6. Except the other day where 1 hour after eating a bowl of custard with bananas it rose up to 9.6 - is this ok? So today i have been busy but I have eaten. For breakfast I had a bowl of fruit and fibre, and the same for lunch as I was busy. at around 3pm I had a fig yoghurt and a banana and a small piece of chocolate. At 5pm I had 2 handfuls of Cheerios (I should stress that I don't normally eat such a lot of cereal - i was just putting the box away and my daughter asked for a handful so I did the same). At 5.30 I started to feel faint - it felt like the blood was draining out of my head. I sat down and put my head low between my legs. I also felt a bit shaky. I checked my sugar and it was 2.9. I panicked a little and put my mouth around the squeezey honey and took a big swig. I opened the fridge and had a glass of apple and pear juice. My hands were quite shaky. 15 minutes later sugar was up to 4.6 then shortly after 5.2. I still feel quite strange in the head. Could anyone offer advice on what is going on, and whether I should be concerned about this? Should I chat with my GP? Sorry about lengthy post just trying to provide as much info as possible. Thanks, Sam.
