I am 22, and my family does not have a history of diabetes. I am rather hypoglycemic and have been so since I was about 12. It has always been fairly under control, and I only have sugar episodes when I get so busy I forget to eat. About the middle of my pregnancy it started getting worse. My baby is 5 months old now, and I am not breastfeeding. If anything, my diet has gotten better, but I've been getting worse.
I am moosy/irritatable. I swing from happy to upset/depressed. My blood sugar has been causing my body to crash. Today, it crashed about an hour and a half after I ate breakfast (I had biscuits/gravy, sausage, and milk!). I get really bad headaches, tunnel vision, and I have started having black-outs. I get really shakey for no reason.
I am beginning to think this isn't something I can control with my diet anymore, but don't have insurance. I read most hypoglycemic adults have an underlying disease.
