@SweetRose2011: I am definitely NOT a nurse or a doctor-but I do remember when I was a child that my grandfather (who had diabetes) used to drink  a bit of orange juice when his “sugar” or insulin was off.  If you have already tried that-you definitely need more advice than I could possibly give.  and I am hoping this bumps this so someone who is actually qualified to answer your question -will post!

Honestly, I think you should go to the ER.  If you don’t have insurance, they can work with you.  Something just doesn’t sound right.

@SweetRose2011:  If its extremely low and eating is  not helping then I would go to the ER because you do NOT want to go to sleep with your sugar dangerously low.  Call your doctor’s office and the answering machine should have some kind of hotline to call, they may have better advice for you !

What makes you think you’re hypoglycemic?  

A little candy or something would help a hypoglycemic episode (protein not so much since it takes longer to break down), but it would be odd for you to feel that way all day, especially despite eating.  There may be something else going on.

I am not a nurse or a doctor, so I cannot give any “real” medical advice.

But have you checked your blood glucose (aka blood sugar) level? Do you have a glucose meter that you could use to check it?

I know you said that you don’t think candy would help you, but it might be worth a try. Try drinking orange juice or any sweet coke.

Also, calling a doctor or a clinic hotline could be very helpful. They could point you in the right direction!

Hope you feel better soon!!

There are usually all night walk in clinics open somewhere in your area, they may send you to the hospital after checking your sugar and then you will have to pay 2 places…. but I would definitely go to the Dr, if its nothing, than that’s good! If you need medical assistance than you would be in the right place! Hope you go and you feel better soon

I’m a diabetic.

I don’t know why you’d eat protein, when you need carbohydrate. most protein has no carbs to speak of. Juice, bread, muffin, some sort of dense carb. Protein will do nothing for raising your blood dugar.

Yes, I think that you should probably find a clinic also.

Hmm, ok…your symptoms are just a little odd for hypoglycemia.  I agree with everyone else that you should head to the ER if you’re concerned, because it may not just be hypoglycemia, especially if it’s not resolving with juice or carbs.

Please just have someone take you to the ER. I can’t offer any medical advice but agree that things sound very off.

Yes, an ER bill will be expensive but your health & life is worth 50 billion times more than any credit card bill.

My husband and I would give every single cent we have and be in debt for the rest of our lives to know something was wrong with my Brother-In-Law the night he passed away in his sleep.

GO.
