What is considered low blood sugar. I swear I feel shaky at 80. I have never been diagnosed with either diabetes or hypoglycemia but decided to buy a blood sugar meter to just see what it is when I get that shakey feeling. It's about 80 or 85 and then I eat and it goes to about 105...then slowly goes back down to 85 or 90. I've poked my finger so many times to see what the heck is wrong with me. I hate that shakey feeling but I have never seen my b/s go below 80.

Goals for diabetics are fasting blood sugars are between 70-110

2 hrs after meals under 140...

Have you checked your blood sugar 2 hrs after a meal? Do you notice if you are shaky after certain meals? Sometimes large carbohydrate meals cause extra insulin production and then lower blood sugars because of the over production. Ive only heard of being shaky at 80 when someone is use to being high...above 150s...Are you on any meds that maybe causing the shakes? I say tell your doc your symptoms and go from there.
