Hi, I have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks for the last few years. I have also been diagnosed with hypoglycemia at age 12. I recently have been told that the two may be linked. I've been monitoring my diet and blood glucose for the first time in many years. This morning I ate a banana and some almonds for breakfast. I felt extremely dizzy afterwards, and two hours later when I checked my blood glucose, it was 79, which is very low for me. I'm wondering why this happened, because usually after eating my glucose is in the 90s or low 100s. Thank you!

Thank you for asking
I read your question and i understand your concern. Just a banana alone cant rise glucose enough. Also it should be evaluated for the cause of any hypoglycemia. Endogenous causes like insulinoma should be excluded. Rest anxiety and anorexia can induce hypoglycemia.

I hope it helps. Please consult your doctor as our advice is just for education purpose only.
