Hello. I'm very frustrated at my spells of lightheadedness for the past few weeks. It happens daily, and usually at specific time. I live a very routine life. I do not think it's a cardiac issue. From everything I have researched it appears it may be a blood sugar type thing. The problem is I bought a blood sugar machine and my values are always normal...very normal. I'm in shape and I exercise regularly.
I'm a 38 year old male. When the lightheadedness strikes I often feel hot too.
So here's the question. Can I still have hypo like symptoms even if my blood sugar is a normal reading?? I read someone on this website say that hormonal changes can screw with your insulin levels, etc. I am 38 and under a lot of stress and sleeping poorly---perhaps my hormones are out of whack. But I'm pretty sure my testosterone levels are ok---I still have a strong sex drive (thank God lol).
So I wondered if it could be a blood sugar thing even if my levels are normal. And if the answer is yes, what should I or could I do about it? Drink fruit juice when it happens? In other words should I treat it as if I were experiencing hypo?
When was the last time you saw a doctor and had full health checkup? We can run loops and circles speculating why you're getting lightheaded, find no real answers as your health continues to deteriorate. Go see a doctor before you end up in a hospital bed. Good luck -
