Re: Weigh gain, headaches, tiredness, low moods
NMW: Start with the hormones and then if that's o.k. get checked for diabetes. Get your blood sugars tested. You don't say your age but if you're nearing menopause your hormones could play games with your blood sugars. Increased estrogen in your body can cause hypoglycemia. The side-effects of hypo are: Shaking, Fast heartbeat, Sweating, Anxiousness, Dizziness, Hunger, Impaired vision, Weakness/Fatigue, Headache, and Irritabiltiy. Remember, insulin is a hormone too. The hypo is when you've got too much insulin and your body needs food to bring the sugar levels back in balance. Some people even have what they call Reactive Hypoglycemia. They don't have diabetes but their sugars run low and they need carbs to keep them balanced. Good luck.
