Please Help Once Again??????

Hi everyone It has been a long time since I posted here but I still am going thru all the medical problems and still no one can figure me out. I was diag with reactive hypoglycermia because of a sugar test going down to 30 about 2 years ago. But I have tried to tell all of the doctors that sometimes when i check my sugar it is really high. Tonight after eating supper I began to feel really wierd and felt like a blind was slowly closing over my eyes, I felt like these waves were going thru my head and real weak. So I had not me ssed with that blood meter in along time but got it out and my hubby and I checked and it was 383. Within just a few minutes about 10 I started to feel better just really sleepy and we rechecked it about 35 min later and it was 136. Does any of this sound familar?Also I have been having alot of stomache problems burping and my stomache actually hurting ,lots of headaches still ,and some days i just cant fuction .I hurt everywhere there is a place. Please any insight would greatly be appreciated Thanks Bev

You clearly have some pretty significant insulin resistance. What's happening is that your body is needing to release a large amount of insulin to cover the carbs you are eating. Because you need more insulin, it takes longer for the insulin to kick in, allowing your blood sugar to spike high after a meal, usually within the first hour or two, then producing a rapid drop in blood sugar. That's most likely what caused the 30 on your glucose tolerance test too. Speak to your doctor about the best course of action regarding dietary changes.
