Yeah, that's why I asked. My sugar never goes too low, but if it drops really fast, I get dizzy. That happened once when we went out to eat. I felt dizzy and sick to my stomach when we got to the restaurant. I didn't even feel like eating. I checked my BG level and it had dropped drastically. I ate a roll as soon as we sat down, and my dizziness and upset stomach immediately went away.

You might want to carry hard candies with you. If you feel dizzy eat one (and then eat of course). It could help while you are waiting for the food to be ready.

Yes, thats why if i go to long im man down before i know it. It used be that i could go a day or two with out eating and be fine becasue my metabolic rate was screwed up, now since i have started to exercise more, it seems that a few hours is all i can go,.

thats why i am going to have a harder time losing weight. I need to eat carbs every so often, so i have to make sure they are good carbs that wont cause me to gain.

i am diabetic, dr. prescribed new oral meds as the highs were way out of line.now it has gone the other way. been fighting dangerous lows for a couple weeks.

i can really feel it when it goes that low, headache, dizzy, can't think and vision is blurry among other things. food to bring it up was not fast enough so had to eat glucose tablets. that is fairly fast.

if your blood sugar goes to low u can pass out and worse case go into a coma.

better to eat small amounts over the day. so no starving yourself to lost weight.

Fresh fruit, especially oranges, is good for that. My aunt was diabetic and always carried orange juice with her in case her blood sugar got too low, but if you're not actually diabetic, eating an orange will give you the sugar with the added benefit of fiber.
