Is there a diabetic or pre-diabetic condition that causes dizziness when consuming large quantities of sugar, or is it probably more related to my age?
I'm 59, male, 5'10" 175lbs. I'm on Metroprolol 25mg once per day. No diabetes in my family, no other major health problems except heart arrhythmia requiring a pacemaker to manage it.
I test for diabetes every 6 months or so, including a glucose tolerance test. Tests are always negative.
I don't eat or drink a lot of sweets. In the past year or 2, I have noticed that when I drink an occasional glass of grape or cranberry juice, I get dizzy. I asked my doc about that, and he said "well, don't drink the juice". Recently, I drank a glass of juice, and became very dizzy, so it seems to be worsening. I used to eat a lot of sweets, and it never made me dizzy before, so it has me puzzled and concerned, because my doc is not exactly a fireball. Or should I just shut up and not drink the juice?
