  • Diabetes? Check with your doctor, that sounds like a blood sugar problem.

  • low blood sugar. You need to go have it checked out b/c you could be hypoglycemic. If you are, && your blood sugar drops too low, then it can cause you to have a seizure.

  • You need to get checked out by a doctor; I would also ask for a referral to a nutritionist.

  • Do you eat breakfast? A good healthy breakfast with a source of protein and lots of fiber? Most people think cold cereal or just a cup of coffee will do, but they won't keep your body fueled. Cereals are mostly carbs, which are used up by your body within 2 to 3 hours. If you don't have protein or high fiber with your breakfast (both extend your body's energy; protein takes longer to digest than carbs and fiber slows the body's absorption of carbs) then you WILL feel hungry, weak and shaky until you refuel your body.

    Whether you are hypoglycemic or hyperglycemic, snacks are a good idea: nonfat yogurt, apple slices and peanut butter, whole grain crackers topped with low fat cream cheese and fruit or veggie slices, whole grain crackers with slices of hard cheese, etc. Again, fiber and protein sources are more important than simple carbs or sweets (chips, cookies, candy)
