Can high blood sugar make you dizzy?

Last 2 blood sugar tests where you drink the sweet stuff and wait two hours
first was 166, few months later 146, I am 6ft 1 185Lbs eat right execise,
no history of diabetes in family. If I am type II, will that explain why I get so very dizzy all the time in the last year, some times it goes away if I eat some fruit or candy. I will see the doctor this sat Sep 29th and have him do a blood monitor test on me just to see if it his high. Anyone care to comment?

Thanks...

Hi Jake. The two blood sugars you mention are definitely high for 2 hours after eating something.

On the other hand, you say that you sometimes feel dizzy and that when you eat some candy or fruit that goes away. That could be two things. It could be a bit of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) which does often lead to diabetes. Or, your body has become accustomed to having high blood sugar and when you get closer to "normal" you feel "low". The dizziness is often associated with low blood sugar. It could be either of those things. Unless you can test yourself when you feel that way, you won't really know. Do you have a friend you coud borrow a blood sugar monitor from and test yourself once in a while? I'm not suggesting that you diagnose yourself, but it would be helpful for both you and the doc to see some results from during a normal day.

Take care.

Cora
