Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

hypoglycemia is very easy to check for

a simple finger blood test when you have your symptoms can check for hypoglycemia

just go to the doctors and ask for a simple finger blood glucose test

or ask to borrow a home glucose monitor to check your sugar levels at home

have you had your blood glucose levels checked before?
