Hello everyone! I'm new to this community, so I'm not sure how everything works just yet. Thanks to those who have welcomed me! Since I was young, I have had hypoglycemia issues and this summer it was especially bad, to the point of passing out. I am 19 years old, 5'5" and 101 pounds. No matter what, I can't gain weight even though I eat like a horse. Last summer, I dropped to 95 pounds but since then have been able to get back to 100.
When I went to the doctor in September and expressed my concerns about my blood sugar, I had lab work done but everything came back normal with slight highs and lows on things like phosphatase and the like, but nothing to be concerned about. My fasting blood glucose was 90 at 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon (I hadn't been able to eat that day).
My GP (a different doctor than the one I saw) suggested I start monitoring my blood sugar just to see what was going on. So far, my fasting blood sugar has been between 98-110 pretty consistently over the past few weeks. I have checked it randomly sometimes and have gotten ranges from 110-155, but it is never really below 100 except one time I checked it was 78 and I felt really bad.
Any suggestions as to what this could be? I'm just really confused and am tired of feeling so exhausted every day. I don't even have the energy to stand up while I get ready in the mornings and I'm hungry and thirsty pretty much 24/7.
I know my numbers aren't high enough to be diabetes, so I was wondering if it could be pre-diabetes or some other pancreas/insulin issue. Thanks in advance for any help or advice!
