Low blood sugar level, feeling tired, urgency to urinate. Blood sugar may be the Factor?

I am just trying to find out if I should got to my doctor about my blood glucose levels. I randomly check it and typically I am between 71-78 and this is even after eating but i also notice that I am tired most of the time and have had a few occasions where I felt I was getting ready to pass out and I am wondering if my blood sugar could be a factor

Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

Yes, I definitely think it is a good idea to visit your doctor. Dehydation, low sugar levels, Alterations in blood pressure, blood sugars, thyroid abnormalities , anaemia (low hemoglobin) , etc can cause severe tiredness.

It would be a good idea to get your blood pressure checked...... cholesterol levels, Vitamin B12, hemoglobin, TSH, Fasting blood glucose and post prandial blood glucose .

Have well balanced meals.
Instead of 3 large meals a day, try having smaller frequent meals 6 times a day.
Drink 8-10 glasses of water a day.

Your glucose levels 71-78 seem to be in the normal range. However, some people get hypoglycemic symtoms even with this value. Any history of tremors, sweating , palpitations etc ?

I hope I have answered your question. Please do get back to me if you have further queries.

Have a great day :)
