As a kid my doctor felt that I was showing signs of something. I was not allowed to have sugar for a long time. If I did I would get so dizzy and sometimes I would come close to passing out. If I skipped meals I would get the shakes.
Since i've gotten older it has become worse. If I have a lot of sugar I get heart palpatations and if I don't eat right I get so shaky and feel like I am going to pass out. In 6 years i've had four children and they test your blood sugar when you are pregnant and i've always tested normal. But I was wondering if whatever I had as a child might be coming back into my life. My grandfather has latent diabietes. Somewhere someone told me that it skips a generation. I don't know if that is true but if it is the generation to get it would be my brother or i.
Anyone have an idea about what might be going on with me?
It has been said that diabetes does skip a generation, however it was referred to type 1 I beleive (autoimmune) usually in such a case another autoimmue disease had a 50% chance of being passed to the next generation..In the form of arthritus, lupus etc..Also, hypoglycemia has been found to be linked to family lines that had alcoholics. There was a weakness linked into their livers and personality behavior which lead to this. Depression as well.
It is possible if you aren't eating properly and you can have hypoglycemia not related to diabetes purely- I have the same as you in story and family background. How old are you now and have you ever had a child?
