Brief Answer: Hypoglycemia. Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. This seems to be due to hypoglycemia(Low blood sugar). There is impairment in the levels of blood sugar in a pre-diabetic due to high insulin resistance. This also happens when your energy intake is less then energy expenditure. I advise for your problem is - Adequate intake of calories depending on your energy expenditure. (Exercise, day to day activities and work). - Frequent small meal to maintain good blood sugar levels to prevent hypoglycemia. - Check your blood sugar regularly. - Get your basic blood tests done including vitamin levels like folic acid, vitamin B12, vitamin D levels, etc. Your treating doctor may consider Metformin to help reduce insulin resistance and weight. Hope the answer helps your. Let me know it there is any further clarifications. Regards.
