Low blood sugar

I was wondering if anyone here with CFS experiences bouts of low blood sugar, particuarly overnight or in the morning. I'm not 100% sure if I have CFS - doctors have said its a possibility. But even with a low GI diet with lots of fruit and vegetables, I find that there are times when what I eat just doesn't 'register', as if my body is under stress and is burning more energy.

The weirdest thing is that since I became sick, I get extremely hungry in the middle of the night sometimes, and can't get back to sleep unless I eat something. I know it's unusual, but does anyone else experience this, or low blood sugar symptoms?

Re: Low blood sugar

You shouldn't have low blood sugar unless your on insulin medication or have a condition knows a hypoglycemia. You need to see your doctor for a blood test known as a insulin resistance blood test. Meanwhile have snacks handy with you incase your BS goes low & also purchase a blood sugar monitor from your pharmacist & when you think your going low, test yourself & record it down in a diary. Good luck
