I have been having low blood sugar a lot lately in the upper 40s and lower 50s a lot lately (more than 12 times in the last week). It's like my blood sugar drops really fast after I eat. The doctor said I have reactive hypoglycemia, meaning my blood sugars spike and fall drastically really fast. The doctor just told me to cut out sweets without proteins, but I've already done that. I mix and balance carbs and proteins all the time, and I just don't get what I'm doing wrong. I don't understand what is so wrong with me that I can't have normal blood sugar readings again. After my attack where my blood sugar dropped to 38, I really started to take control of the times I eat and started testing my blood sugar a lot more often. This is expensive because my doctor "doesn't think I need to test so often", and I have to buy the strips myself. I have been having panic attack after panic attack lately and severe nightmares because of this and all the other health issues I'm going through. I really wish my doctor would refer me to a specialist before my insurance runs out because the readings I'm having can get serious fast. I'm really worried about how this has been affecting my life, and I can't take it anymore. I wish my doctors would understand I'm really concerned and that have had near fainting spells at work requiring me to eat and take extra breaks when they don't really like me to do. I can't drive sometimes when I need to because of this as well. I just don't know what to do.
