It happens between meals, i eat normally probably a little more than i'm suppose to. I am 17 years old and i've been dealing with it ever since i can remember i've just never done anything about it my mom's always told me it low blood sugar. I would just like to know a answer, but between meals sometimes i start to get shaky and have cold sweats and it makes me feel like i'm going to pass out, i've yet to pass out, but when this happens i know that i need to get some kind of sugar in my system it usually helps and sometimes it does not help at all. I think it may be hypoglycemia because i have all the symptoms, whatever it is i need to know before it might cause something bad to happen. Please and Thank you.

I think you would be better off eating protein instead of eating sugar,the sugar will spike your blood sugar but then it will drop again.You should eat small protein meals throughout the day.Maybe you should go to the dr. and get a fasting blood glucose test,it is a blood test.Hope this helps.

Glucose test
Hemoglobin A1C is a better test compared to the fasting blood glucose test. Since your symptoms are classic I would definitely get this done. It gives a average glucose level over a period of time(3 months or so). Since your glucose level fluctuates widely throughout the day, this test gives a clearer picture of what is happening in your body over time.
