Just wondering whether anybody can give me advice. I'm a keen runner...not doing much at the min but usually run 15-20 miles a week and more when training for a half-marathon. I'm running my first marathon in October and I also try and get to the gym at least 3 times a week to do weight/sprint training. I also play hockey.
I've recently had blood tests for various issues but twice my blood sugar has come back 3.4...I'm confused as some things I've read is that the level should be between 4-7 and other's I've read 3.5-7.5?
When I had the blood test I had eaten 3 weetabix, skimmed milk, 1 banana, 1 pot of fruit yoghurt and 2 quality streets (it was Christmas) so I wasn't having a blood test on an empty stomach.
I do feel dizzy and slightly faint when it's more than say 4 hours and I haven't eaten or drunk anything. I'm always without fail starving in the mornings and I sometimes wake at 8 am on a weekend just to have breakfast as I can't get back to sleep again if I'm hungry...
I'm going to go the GP again but just wondering if anyone has the same thing/or knows anything regarding this?
