| | Blood sugar off in otherwise healthy person
I'm 28, female, 5'8" and 140 pounds, active, pesco-vegetarian and I eat pretty healthily (1700-1900 calories a day, average 55% carbs, 15% protein, and 30% fat). I wouldn't think, given my weight, age, diet, etc., that I would have problems like this, but in the last year or so I feel like my blood sugar is all over the place.
About once a week I have an "episode" just before lunch time where my hands start shaking pretty violently and I sweat and get really hot, like I would if I were exercising, only I'm just sitting at my desk. Eating lunch makes the sweating and shaking stop, but then I'm exhausted and weak. Right now I've just passed an episode and it feels like a chore just to move my hands on the keyboard.
I eat cereal with skim milk and a cup of coffee for breakfast, my only caffeine of the day. Lunch is usually sandwiches and fruit or cheese, dinner is fish and salad or something similar. Like I said, I eat pretty healthily-- I'm not pumping myself full of candy or caffeine or anything, although I do crave sweets all the time.
Does anyone have any thoughts for me? I haven't talked to my doctor about it yet, although I know I should. I just don't want to go through a bunch of tests for them to tell me they don't know/can't find anything wrong. Thank you!
