I got a reply earlier that started to make me really think. I noted that semi-recently, about 4 months or so now, I get really tired early in the day for no reason. For example I could get up at 8:30, be at work by noon, and I'll be tired and sleepy by 12:30. I do usually eat breakfast, usually corn flakes with berries or the fruit filled mini wheats, but I feel like I've been up all night and could fall asleep where I stand. I've even resorted to getting a red bull a couple times just to keep going. Someone posted that I could be having blood sugar issues, and I'm starting to think they might be right. I eat way more sugar than I should. WAY more. And I've been trying to be conscious about not adding sugar to things or eating high sugar content foods, but could this be my problem?
I've noticed for tiredness, stomach aches, even dizziness-- I almost passed out the other day on my way to work because the car started spinning, luckily my mom was driving, but I felt like I was either going to pass out or be sick. Took about 10 minutes to pass.
Is there a way to "test" your blood sugar without getting those little fingertip prickers? I'm really hoping I haven't made myself diabetic, that's my worst fear, but for anyone with experience with diabetes or these symptoms, can anyone shed some light on the situation? A trip to the doc is definitely in order as well...
Sorry if I posted this in the wrong area... wasn't quite sure where it fit
Thank you for taking the time to read this, I appreciate any help or advice
