Re: home meter accuracy/cause of hypo
When I was first diagnosed with RH, my endocrinologist told me he hates giving that diagnosis because there's usually nothing he can do. I'll rephrase that -- sometimes RH just *is* -- and if you drink regular soda, that's probably contributing to it. Regular soda would cause my blood sugar to shoot to 160 and down to 30. And I am NOT pre-diabetic. So I hope that reassures you. You probably do not have a tumor or something nasty, but it's worth a doc appointment to be sure. In my case, a Yeast infection (systemic) worsened my symptoms. There are dozens of reasons why you could have RH, including celiac, surgery, yeast, etc!
Your home meter is probably accurate. Symptoms generally develop below 50mg/dL, but your body could be overly sensitive. I would take readings EVERY time you feel ill, to get an idea of how your body reacts over time.
Best of luck!
