Hello I am new and just after some help and advice. For as long as I can remember (at least 20 years) I have been having episodes where I suddenly get very shakey, flickering in my vision, clammy, feel like I’m going to die etc. I always felt like this was related to food. Recently I purchased a blood glucose monitor from Amazon (Sinocare), took my blood sugar when feeling like this and got a reading of 3.1mmol/L. I have since then had readings of similar when feeling like this -always around 3mmol/L. Last week I called the doctor and a nurse phoned me back. She has booked me in for blood test which I have next Monday and said in the meantime to eat a high Carb diet. I told her I was really shocked by this as I told her the only time I’ve ever not got these episodes was when I Was following a very low carb diet. She laughed and asked if I wanted to try a high carb diet and she cancel the blood test, but I asked to keep it anyway. So after talking to her I followed a high carb diet- shredded wheat, brown toast, potatoes ...and birthday cake (there Have been a couple of family birthdays). Then last Tuesday at 5pm I started feeling ill again, took my blood sugar and it was 15.1mmol/L. Since then it has hovered around high 9mmol/L- 10.6mmol/L. I spoke to a doctor yesterday and she said it was nothing to worry about and to continue eating as normal to get a better idea from the blood test on Monday. I don’t feel I can eat normally because I’m so scared! She also said that it’s perfectly normal to get low blood sugar from time to time and to not worry about it. It terms of other medical history- I have PCOS, retinal vasculitis and GAD which often manifests itself as health anxiety. I been on Sertraline for my anxiety For about 4 years. My retinal Vasculitis is not active at the moment but I still get flickering in my eye, which I am certain is related to blood sugar and what I’ve eaten but my ophthalmologist just laughed at me when I said this. They have never found a reason for my vasculitis. Autoimmune conditions do run in the family. I have been tested on and off over the years (at my insistence) and my blood glucose has always been fine. This morning I took it first thing and it was 8.9mmol/L. I’m really after some advice over what I should be eating, questions i should be asking the doctor etc. At the moment I feel I am just being fobbed off and that they do not take me seriously because they can see I have anxiety. I told the doctor I feel generally unwell but she was unconcerned by this and to be fair it may well be because my anxiety is pretty bad over this whole thing. Thanks in advance for any advice.
