Perimenopause?

Hi Sisters!

I need a little help since the doctors know so little about female hormones. Has anyone ever experienced feeling like your blood sugar drops or a general feeling of malaise out of nowhere and sometimes lasting for the majority of the day. I have recently had a ton of blood work, due to my hair falling out, so I know all my levels are good. I was wondering if this can be perimenopause related. I blacked out once when I was pregnant and went through some very strange feelings in my body similar to this after a miscarriage. I just notice that if it doesn't fit the normal symptoms of hot flashes then the doctors make you feel crazy. Can anyone share your symptoms that aren't typical because this has been a very rocky road for me.

Thank you!
Gert

Re: Perimenopause?

I think you should order some hormone test, you’ll know if you’re in peri menopause.
Have you had your blood pressure checked?

Last time I had my hormones checked I was in perimenopause and I had my blood pressure checked a week ago and everything was good.

Re: Perimenopause?

Gert75,

Yes I have had this symptom on an off for a long time. I tend to think it is blood sugar related. Especially since in the last few years it is so much better and rarely happens any more. I finally have gotten on a good dose of levothyroxin, so I generally feel a lot better. I also have noticed if I drink water, a (whole glass) when it happens I do revive quicker. I think it may happen more when I have had a bout of binging on higher sugar foods. This started happening when I was in peri-menopause so And I think the fluctuation of those hormones made it worse. Maybe my body was just all out of whack with the change but now I rarely have the problem and the consistent thing now is the thyroid. Hope this insight is helpful. You might want to talk to your Dr more about the general relationship of all hormones.

Sister hugs,
Anndy

Re: Perimenopause?

I was just about to post another thread about this. I've had this issue since my hysterectomy. It's getting worse. I don't have diabetes, but have what feels like terrible hypoglycemic attacks. I have body tremors daily. Dr. referred me to an endo, but I can't see her until late May! When you find out what the heck this is, would you please keep us updated?

Perimenopause?


Your levels of estrogen and progesterone affect how your body responds to insulin, and the hormonal swings that commonly occur during perimenopause can cause your blood sugar levels to fluctuate. One simple solution to this is to be selective about your carb intake: that means minimizing or avoiding high-glycemic carbs from white potatoes, sugary drinks, sugary spreads like jam or honey, candies, refined grain products, and most packaged breakfast, snack, and dessert food, which can cause your blood sugar levels to surge and then crash; and focusing mainly on low-glycemic carbs from most fruits and vegetables, legumes, and whole grains, accompanied by moderate servings of protein and healthy fats, which can help to keep your levels more stable. Best wishes for finding your balance soon, and for your continued health!

I wanted to reply to your post. I'm still waiting on my results from the endocrinologist. I will keep you updated. I also was getting the tremors in my body but those for me were hormonal. I had tremors after a miscarriage and at times before my cycle so those I was used to. As soon as I know more I will post again. I hope you feel better soon!
