Non Diabetic hypoglycemia anyone?
I’ve been dealing with low sugars for over 20 years. I got tired of drs not believing me. No diabetes ever. I get monitored every year. I finally found an endocrinologist who believes and is happy to help figure out the cause. I had a blood test the other day when my sugar was 49. The pro insulin icma came back high. What does that mean?

My sugar for a while was up into the 300’s and I went to the hospital to bring it down and a drip bag into my IV of vitamin K after an hour it went down to 105 .. I have type II diabetes and on metformen now and it’s been from 86 (kind of low) to 146 the highest. My heart rate had gone up to 146 but that eventually dropped without medical intervention.
@andytheman your post turned up in a discussion about “Non Diabetic hypoglycemia”. I see that you have “type 11 diabetes”. At any rate I’m glad that after a hospital visit your blood sugar got regulated. 86 – 146 blood sugar sounds like a pretty decent range.
I’ve seen people with a reading of over 400. That is high. I also heard that you can survive at 600 but of course you’re rushed to an ER. An 86 would get you a glass of orange juice. ( it’s morning) where I live. I’m normally between 94 to 102. Great! In fact, they took me off the metformin and I’m still pulling in low but way within range.
A recent hospital visit showed a heart rate (pulse) of 146. The doctor started panicking because it wouldn’t stop going up. It peaked at 146 then went down. But I did pass out and was carried to a bed but I don’t remember who or how they did it. I had no recolection.
