User :   Good Morning,I have a history of hypoglycemia and for the last couple of weeks I have noticed instead of being low my levels are much higher than usual. For example I have been fasting for almost 11 hours and my level was 133. Normally it would be 60 or 70 for me. I am very weak and feel shaky like I do with low blood sugar but I don't know if eating will make me better or worse...and I don't know what to eat to bring it down....Is this something I need to go to the hospital for? Please help I feel awful.
Thank you for your help!
