diabetes? can i have it?
im 22, i was once considered "border line" when i was 300 pounds, i had gastric bypass, and now i weigh in at 155. but a nurse gave me a meter, and showed me how to use it, over a year ago. ive gotten all sorts of numbers, if i get dizzy or light headed my number is in the 30-50 range, i eat something and feel better.(this happens almost everyday though) and ive also tested after i eat something sweet its in the mid too high 200's. (i usually feel really sick after i eat sweets)which im not sure what the numbers mean. but my tests came back normal after the tests, i just continue to test myself cause im curious what the numbers are when i feel sick. do i need to go to the doctor are these numbers normal? i have taken it and its been in the 70-90 range when im feeling normal. so i guess my numbers are a vary wide range? please help!

i do get sweaty and chilly when its really low, and usually when i eat sweets it would be like a regular candy bar, nothing too big. and yes the test was just a fasting test. i didn't know there was more

30 - 50 is very low - you get the sweats, dizzy immediate answer eat something

yep I would see the doc asap

normal glucose 2 hours after meals is
140 or less with diabetes 160 - 180

See a doctor as soon as possible. If you are confirmed to have some form of diabetes (sounds like type 2) you should get a referral to a specialist like a diabetic endocrinologist.

You should not be spiking in the 200's at any time. Get your status re-checked and have an A1C test run. It will show your doctors the average that you have been running over the last 3 months. Tell them about your 200 spikes.
EDITED: Please go see your doctor 282 is much too high. I'm not sure why you would have such lows but I do KNOW that your numbers above 140 qualify you as a diabetic. You need to ask about the HA1C and tell your doctor about these highs and lows.

Gastric bypass is not the answer to obesity, as you have found out. It cannot and should not replace a healthy diet and exercise.

In fact, it can CAUSE additional problems and complications, as you have found out. In addition, it has not be shown to actually prevent Type 2 diabetes. Many obese people still develop the disease afterwards. You need to physically exercise to restore the insulin sensitivity lost in Type 2 diabetes, and follow a healthy anti-inflammatory diet. Simply mechanically reducing or re-routing ones stomach is not the answer.

While I cannot say you have a diagnosis of hypoglycemia or Type 2 diabetes as of yet, you definitely have disordered and abnormal blood glucose levels. Only your doctor can diagnose you. This is COMMON with those who have gastric bypass surgery, as the stomach is bypassed directly into the small intestine. This creates all sorts of havoc within the body, affecting absorption, digestion, and yes, erratic insulin secretion.

This is why gastric bypass should not be covered as a treatment for weight loss to improve health. Only a healthy lifestyle is the answer to that.

Please follow up with your specialist familiar with gastric bypass, you likely will need a special care plan tailored to your special case. What you describe is not an uncommon result in bypass patients.

I am not sure why you are eating "sweets". In addition to the fact that they are unhealthy and can cause obesity in the first place, you are dumping the glucose essentially directly into your small intestine, jacking your blood sugar up rapidly and sky high. Then, you will have the quick release of insulin, followed by a low blod sugar and that "dizzy" feeling. Rapid swings in blood sugar can cause this.

I suggest that rather than rely on surgery, you meet with a dietician to learn how to eat healthy, and attack the root cause of your problem. If you don't, nothing has been accomplished. You have to make the effort to save your life, no one else will.

When your blood glucose is in the 200s, how much sugar have you eaten? If you ate A LOT, then this could be normal. But if you've only eaten a small amount, it sounds like you could be diabetic.

The 30-50 blood glucose range could mean you're hypoglycemic, especially if it occurs a lot.

What tests did your doctor do? Hemoglobin A1C? Glucose tolerance test? Fasting blood glucose? With the numbers you've been getting, I'd request that he/she do any tests that haven't been done yet. If you only had a fasting blood glucose test, you're not getting the full picture.
