Sugar Containing Foods Causing Dizziness.

I have been a type 1 diabetic for over 24 years.
I have been having problems with extreme dizziness after I eat milk and/
or sugary food products.
I sometime have low blood sugars and not have dizziness till after I eat some form of sugar to correct the lows.
I need some help on this,i understand that neuropathy can cause this.
I asked my doctor and he said to see an ear specialist.
I think that can be hogwash.
I need answers to why the dizziness after sugar foods.
Hope someone out there can help

can't say for sure, but you should ask for a glucose test and an a1c test of your blood. And, this may sound simple, but if sugar is causing an adverse reaction, stop eating it. It's easier said than done, as I have been a sugar and carb addict my whole life, but I am purging myself of all that crap, and I feel tons better, and don't feel like i've really missed anything.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its due to autonomic neuropathy. You should go for HbA1C and pure tone audiometery.
If problem still persists then MRI brain should be considered.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
