Diabetic

Years ago when i managed to go to Australia and stayed with my diabetic cousin, she said i ate like a Diabetic and i sometimes i just long for chocolate or sugar - makes me feel better.
Anyway re our illness she has it too - so i went to her Dr and he said i was a diabetic - but when he did the blood test i was clear.
Anyone else need sugar?
and when i eat too much i feel really sick.

Apparently fluctuating blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia-sp?) are a part of fibro.
I often crave sugar, but too much will give me a splitting headache & make me very thirsty.
I have been tested for diabetes repeatedly because of these symptoms

Eating low GI foods to keep your blood sugar stable helps, but its hard to really stick to it :roll:

My Dr keeps taking my thyroid and diabetic tests, but they always come back negative.

And WHOPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE My BP was normal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - its taken 2 years and medication but its normal so now just to get the colestral down a bitty.

Am so happy today and slept well last night exhausted after having grand daughter to stay for 3 days.

As far back as I can remember I have had sugar cravings. When I'm very tired there is nothing better than a sugar fix.

It's not just sugar/chocolate cravings I get carbohydrate cravings in general - especially my homemade bread rolls :D

I also get the shakes, dizziness, sweats etc, last time it happened when my diabetic friend was with me she took my blood sugar level - it was 2.4 :shock:

I mentioned to my GP how tired I've been lately (practically comatose some days) and I ended up having yet another set of bloods done today.
