Question about my blood sugar level?
Topic: Question about my blood sugar level?
April 24, 2019 / By Babe Question:
Ok so i have a family history of type 2 diabetes on my fathers side. My sister who had a miserably unhealthy diet recently got dignosed with diabetes, the only one out of all my siblings.
Yesterday, I sort of passed out because I was too busy to eat. So my mom wanted me to check my sugar this morning but I forgot. I ate a small breakfast (not too small) at 9:50AM. I checked my sugar at 4:25PM because I had the jitters and was once again to busy to eat my 1pm lunch. My blood sugar level read 86.
I'm 17 years old and about 5'3 122 pounds. Im kind of a health fanatic so my eating habits are pretty good. I'm the kind of person who craves fruits and kale, not candy lol)
I often have symptoms of a diabetic (I see them in my dad and sister) like mood swings and jitters for example! There are more but I don't feel like listing them.
I dont think Im diabetic

Supposed to be 80-120 at normal levels. So 80 is a bit low. You sound more hypoglycemic than diabetic.
Just make sure to have a snack if you're going to skip a meal. You will get dizzy like you did before if your sugar levels are low.

A strict diet and daily exercise can reduce blood sugar levels greatly. Working with a physician and nutritionist to attain this goal is crucial to success and long term lifestyle change. At the very least, with diet and exercise you can minimize the amount of medication you need to be on. Good luck.
86 is normal for a non-diabetic. 86 is not low, so had nothing to do with your symptoms.
The only way to know for sure if you are diabetic, or what causes your symptoms is to see a doctor.
You can get diabetes at a "healthy" weight and while eating a healthy diet.
A normal fasting glucose reading (8 hours without food, and only water to drink) is 70-99.

I'm a 45 year old woman and was recently diagnosed as being a borderline diabetic. My doctor prescribed some medication, but before filling it I decided to do some research on the internet which led me to the methods. After reading this ebook and applying the methods, my scepticism turned to 100% belief. I noticed that my energy levels increased significantly and I felt more rested in the morning, my symptoms started going away.
I am very happy to tell you that I have been feeling better than I have felt in years and my doctor informed me that he will be taking me off my prescriptions if I keep this up.
I recommend you use the Type 2 Diabetes Destroyer to naturally reverse your diabetes.

You do not have diabetes. 86 is perfect - it is neither high nor low. If your mom tested your blood sugar, she should know what the data means and should have told you that.
Mood swings and jitters are not common symptoms of diabetes.
I have never met a 17 year old that did not have mood swings!

Your dizziness and symptoms appearing similar to that of your dad and your sister may have nothing to do with your diabetes -- I strongly recommend you rely on the readings of a relaible glucometer or thaty of two glucometers . Thanks.

Could also be something like reactive hypoglycemia (your body over-reacts to foods you eat and produces too much insulin, causing you to go "low.").
Despite how it sounds, a lot of folks recommend a low-carb diet for this, as it helps to reduce your body's reaction to the carbs that you DO eat, and it can reduce the lows.
Some folks also recommend frequent small meals, if that's an option for you.
Either way, you should probably talk to a doc.
