Sensitive to changes in sugar levels. How to know low sugar level and to stabilize?

Hi, I started taking cipralex over the summer. I now take 20mg a day. I have noticed recently that I am highly sensitive to changes in my level of blood sugar , and that every few hours I have to eat something or else my brain shuts off. Are these connected? How do I know if my blood sugar is low? What can I do to stablize myself without constantly having to eat? Camille

we take food when we are hungry and hungry is nothing but you need food and you should be satisfied atleast for 3 to 4 hours. how do you know that you are sensitive to changes in blood sugar craving for food has lot of reasons starting from psychogenic and may be wat you are eating is not utilised so you feel like taking more which may be a sign of diabetes , but do u have other symptoms of diabetes . like feeling thirsty passing urine often and wt loss etc. simple thing is check your blood sugar ' good luck keep in touch
