On my last blood test my post glucose (after I had breakfast and then took a blood sample 2 hours later) it came back as 65ml/dl is this too low or is it a normal reading I am 19 years old, I am not overweight in fact I am underweight, I don't smoke and no one in my family has diabetes and I personally never rely had sweat tooth. They said this could be sign of reactive hypoglycemia and lead to insulin resistance and then type 2 diabetes. The doctor recommended me to eat more often and to let my pancreas normalize it's insulin production. I this possible I don't want to become a diabetes not with all of the risks it brings.
yea know, I can't answer your question but I was interested in your post because I have Hypoglycemia. I have never heard of Reactive Hypoglycemia. I will have to google it. I have family members with diabetes and I was always worried that I would develop diabetes too. So I totally understand your concern.
