no not at all it seems to happen a few times a week usally between 8 and 10 in the morning i usally dont eat breakfast but today i did and it happened any how my brother suggested eating cerial before bed and when i get up but hes no doc and its kinda scarry when it happens ,with the blurry vison and slow reactions
i know you dont have insurance but you would need to see a doctor so that he can run some tests to identify the cause for this low blood sugar including serum insulin level, C PEPTIDE.. may also need imaging as MRI to look at the pancrease to rule out any tumor that might be causing it namely insulinoma.. also important to rule out post prandial hypoglycemia/ adrenal disease.
