I am suffering from hypo like symptoms, hot flushes, racing heart, shaking, dizziness, feinting, cold sweats, loss of concentration which, although I know can happen, is very scary for me.
I'm currently trying to work out what triggers them but I wanted to know if anyone had any advice for what to do during one - i.e. does it indicate that I need sugar? Do I need slow release carbs? Do I just need to ride them out? Am I now basically considered a type 2 diabetic and should follow any advice given to them?
I've just called to ask my hospital nutrition department and they said they can't give advice over the phone and I have to get an appointment and while I've generally got no complaints regarding the NHS you know how it'll be, I'll wait a few weeks for the appointment letter and the appointment will probably be in the next 3 - 6 months but I'm getting these quite often and, like I said above, they scare me!!
