Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Since your glucose level fell after taking a glucose tolerance test, there is a possibility you have insulin secreting tumors called insulinomas. These can secrete huge amounts of insulin after food and a person can suffer from hypoglycemia despite eating. This is the reason you have hypoglycemia like features (increased heart rate, dizziness) after you eat.
Please consult an endocrine specialist with your GTT results.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Hi
Thanks for keeping me posted!
As I probably said earlier, you need to consult an endocrine specialist. You will need to run a few more tests which will monitor your blood glucose level, insulin level and C-peptide level. A CT scan or MRI may be done. Sometimes suppression tests are done in  a hospital setting to see the effect of insulin.
Hope this helps. Take care!
