Customer Question

I had hypoglycaemic symptoms,(headache, sweating, shaking , feeling of extreme low blood sugar nearly vomitted and almost passed out) which came on suddenly without warning. I treated it with quick acting sugar followed by banana. In 15 mins I started to feel better. This has happened for months now to a lesser degree(headache persistant for past two months).I bought a monitor and the lowest my blood sugar has been is 4.5(fasting). I had a bm done at the pharmacy two hours after pancakes and loads of syrup. The reading was 8.8. I have had ketones and protein in my urine even tho my bm at that time was 7.4. I have had 3 consecutive fasting venous glucose tests but don't know the result yet.One Dr thinks I may have a neuro endocrine tumour.I would value your input.
