Dilemma

Hi, I am 43 yrs old housewife. My sugar level has always been on borderline never went beyond the red line. Have no history of parental diabetics.

Today I checked my sugar, fasting was 120 & after 2.30 hrs of my breakfast it went down to 93. I don't take any medication for sugar. Since last 3 - 4 days I am experiencing a heaviness in my head linking till my nose.. I really don't know what it is..

Consume less food more times in a day. Sudden drop of blood sugar from 120 mg/dL to 93 mg/dL may be the reason for experiencing a heaviness in your head.

Hyperinsulinemia, or hyperinsulinaemia is a condition in which there are excess levels of insulin circulating in the blood relative to the level of glucose. While it is often mistaken for diabetes or hyperglycaemia, hyperinsulinemia can result from a variety of metabolic diseases and conditions. Hyperinsulinemia is most often caused by insulin resistance — a condition in which your body doesn't respond well to the effects of insulin. Your pancreas tries to compensate by making more insulin.

Measuring C-peptide can help to determine how much of their own natural insulin a person is producing.

Consult an Endocrinologist.
