I wasn't really sure where to go to ask this, I just googled "blood sugar forum" and this was the first thing that popped up.
I recently got a lingual frenectomy and it hurts to move my tongue, so I can only eat liquids and stuff. 2 days in a row I ate a 3.5-4 cup container of ice cream that each had around a total of 80g of sugar. I was worried that I was eating too much sugar, so I went out and bought a blood glucose monitor, tested out the accuracy with the test control liquid and it worked fine. I think I was fasting when I tested, I don't remember, but I tested for 58mg, didn't think much of it.
The next day, I went out to walk around for some fresh air and stuff, then all of a sudden I get sweats, rapid breathing, shaky, dizzy, so I immediately went to buy 2 cups of yogurt that had 7g of sugar per cup and ate it. After a few minutes, I felt fine.
I went home and tested my glucose which was around maybe 45-60 minutes after I ate my yogurt and I teste for 98mg.
Was the dizziness/sweats/rapid breathing/etc. caused by low blood sugar or was it something else? Should I carry some glucose gel around with me next time?
I know that sugar isn't the sole cause for diabeties, I figured that this is as good of place as any that would know more about hypoglycemia/hyperglycemia/etc. than me.
