Anemia or Hypoglycemia? Can I have both?
I have many symptoms of both Anemia and Hypoglycemia. I am anemic in the sense that I have rapid heart rate at times, lightheadedness, fatigue. I am also hypoglycemic because when my blood sugars are low, they are low RIGHT NOW. I get nauseous and faint with both. It's amazing how fast these symptoms come on. I had been regulating both through diet, but that no longer works. I am a mess. High, low, high, low....There is a strong history of diabetes in my family and I just had blood drawn this morning to check my hemoglobin and sugar levels. I should find out the answers soon.
What I want to know is how do I know when what I am feeling is related to the anemia or the hypoglycemia and can it be both? I take supplements, but these don't help all of the time.
Are these symptoms indicators that something else might be wrong with me? Any imput would be greatly appreciated. What's the next step?
