Hallo Sally
You may get low blood sugar episodes. Try eating a diabetic diet - no to little sugar, low GI foods and eat something like provita and cheese in between meals to keep your blood sugar levelo constant. In some people sugar/high GI food (like white bread, cake, sweets, potatoes) triggers a spike in insulin which causes the blood sugar to drop too low.

Sally, I think you need to go and see your GP asap. You seem to be suffering from low glucose levels, this can be quite serious, I have lived with a diabetic for 27 years so I know the symptoms. Please do not play around with it.
