Low Bloodsugar and Endo

Is there any connection between low bloodsugar and endometriosis. I have been struggeling with symptoms of low bloodsugar (nausea, dizzyness, shakiing, sweating) and because my sister is a diabetic I check my sugar regularly. Sometimes my sugar goes as low as 2,5mmo/l after I have eaten and sometimes I even experience symptoms if my sugar is 4,2 mmol/l. Does this have anything to do with endo?

Dear Annie

I do not recall any connection between the presence of endometriosis and low blood sugar. It appears that you may be having a problem of a postprandial hypoglycemia. This may be present and may not necessarily be relate to the endometriosis in other words there may be two conditions present and that may be co- existing but not relating. I would also advise you to have your thyroid function checked as some of the symptoms that you are describing may also be related to an over active thyroid gland.
