Re: Any experience in this?

Good point Gemini... You might want to have the physician do a blood sugar A1C which is a test of blood sugar levels over time.... Or if you have a glucometer available for a finger stick that will give you an immediate reading. Gemini is right, the revival after sweet tea might indicate low blood sugar levels. Might be worth putting on your "ask the doctor" list. You can buy glucometers cheaply but the test strips are usually perscription and what cost. The doctor will usually give you a kit with a few test trips so you can determine if this is the cause of his symptoms... or mine did. The drug companies like to have their machines in the hands of consumers so you buy their strips
