Dear ma'm, there is a little error i feel. Your vitamin D levels, b12 and iron all levels are low according to me. Your TSH might be normal, but what are the FT4 values? kindly see to it that FT4 is normal as well. Frequent hypoglycemic attacks can due to low cortisol, high insulin levels. Please check for insulinoma, or pituitary suppression as two differential diagnosis. In addition please supplement vitamin D, Iron and B12 in your diet. Regards!
