Before i was diagnosed with type 2 hyperglycemia I went days without hardly eating or sleeping. I had an incredible amount of energy, but I was constantly thirsty and way too hyper for everyone. I was also and still am extremely happy which I haven't seen anywhere to be one of the symptoms. For me it is has been a life changing experience for the better even though there are some bad effects and risks to other long term health problems. I am not scared of anything, my brain works better and faster than ever. I went from being kind of shy and depressed to the most talkative person I know. Even when I got my sugars down to a less scary level I am still happy and full of energy. Maybe I have something else but the doctors see the sugar level and a couple of common side effects and they say diabetes.

Just wondering what is fasting hyperglycemia. In my case and after measure five day in row, the level goes up to 144 after waking up in the morning and drops to 100 rang in the afternoon. This may be the case for the past four years ago and had offered no medication and my HAC1 is normal at 5 max, but the latest urine test reveals +3 for the first time and my Doctor recommended for me to take low dosage of Glucophage. Can someone enlighten me on this.

Here a few years ago I noticed anytime I had sugar or had something sugary the first thing I would start off with is a headache, shaky, and then have to lay down (would go to sleep). Now here lately I noticed if I had not ate for a while and then ate a little bit after I get a headache and not feel good. What can I do?

My experience with hyperglycemia is that I'm always tired my head hurts and when the light is on in my room I squint. I am tired most of the time unless I get some coffee or soda pop like a Coke or Pepsi and I have insomnia.

I am a post gastric bypass patient of 10 years. I was not diabetic before gastric bypass surgery. I had an episode where both my legs lost muscle control and I fell, never losing consciousness. For two months now we are trying to find out why? I had episodes of hypoglycemia in the past, but this is a switch. At the beginning of year I was changing eating habits to a vegetarian and sometimes total vegan. I have been told that my new eating plan would not cause this reaction.
