Hey guys, I have a quick newbie question about blood sugar levels and what not.
Quick back story:
Grandpa is diabetic, checks his blood sugar everyday at 4pm before dinner. Anyways, me being the inquisitive 15 year old I am…I am always have him check my blood sugar when he does it also (just curious, that’s all).
Anyways, it’s been about 3 times he has checked it now. Now he has to make sure his blood sugar is between 80-110, which he says is the normal / low side of blood sugar.
Anyways, long story short, the past three days I have checked my blood sugar I have gotten readings of 91, 86, and today 64. My grandma, a nurse, says that is very low for someone my age and I actually should go see if I am something called hypoglycemic.
I felt fine today when I measured in at 64, absolutely fine, but she made me have a glass of my grandpa’s light orange juice to kick it up to 80.
Should I listen to her and get some blood work or something done or just forget about it?
