Diabetes
Dear Dr.'s

I was feeling rather bad and sick yesterday and a family member who is a diabetic then tested my sugar, it ended up being 3 which is low apparently. Could you please assist as I have these symptoms at least three to four times per week and do not know if it is neccessary to see a doctor to get treatment. I have been treated a year ago with glucophage and was told I was glucose intolerant, nothing serious. I stopped with the drugs as I had problems with not sleeping at all.

Regards,

Green Eyes

Green eyes, it sounds like you might have relative hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar). I wrote something on the subject a while ago and if you mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za, I’ll mail you a copy. Read it and let me now if you have more questions. Good luck.
