HELP PLEASE! Hypoglycemia?
I'm in the middle of a DS SD cycle. For about a week now, every day at least once I'll get light headed, sweaty, foggy in the head, almost like hypoglycemia and I feel like I'm going to pass out. Problem is there's no pattern. Sometimes full stomach, sometimes empty, sometimes morning, sometimes afternoon, sometimes once a day, other times twice. No pattern and I'm starting to get worried. Oh, it even happened on a day that I forgot to take my dosages. I'm starting to get quite concerned. Could someone shed some light?

i tried that. i had an episode this morning about a half hour after drinking a sugary juice. thats whats gotten me confused because its hypoglycemia symptoms even when a have plenty of simple sugars in my system.

When I took SD I'd go hypo within a couple hours after my sugary post-workout shake.. So, it's def not unheard of.

Very which is why I'm concerned. And I don't have medical insurance so it makes it hard to go to the doctor. And even if I did it makes it hard to diagnose esp. when the compound in question is one without medical backing. I'm just hoping it's related to the SD and not something else, I still have a week left in my cycle and I don't want to cut it short after all this planning.

Unless it is keeping you from functioning normal, I would just see it through. But if it gets worse then you can always stop.

Yeah I know. It does keep me from functioning normal. Each episode lasts about 15 minutes and I have to sit down, and I don't think clearly.

Yeah, it's not that bad, if I was sitting down I could control it. The only reason it bothers me is that I have a very active job so it affects that. I'll just stick it out and try to keep the carbs high.

low blood sugar and oral anabolics/prohormones
I have noticed that when using some of the stronger oral prohormones - hormones out these days that my blood sugar crashed without any warning. I recommend keeping juice and snickers bars around all the time if your gonna push through it. its no surprise to me at all this happens. With more and more powerful products out on the market, yuour gonna see this. Its crazy but anadrol and dianabol just dont make your blood sugar low like these new chemicals. Sometimes I think these new chems are pushed out so fast theres no time to research the side effects. 10 15 20lbs of mass thats awesome, but Iam tired of freaking out about my blood sugar.
I say [email protected] these new chems and stick to the tried and true anabolics. dbol anadrol test and deca. I never had crazy sugar problems w these.

Since there's no pattern I would say that it's not hypoglycemia but rather your blood pressure has sky rocketed.

Beyond that, I knew what you would say and always go in the opposite direction. Plus, I play a doctor on TV.

I'll keep an eye on my blood pressure, I'll have to check it tomorrow my meter is at a friends house. I have gone hypo before and it feels exactly like hypoglycemia. But like you said theres no pattern. What I don't understand is why I'm getting this now and not with past cycles.

It could be anything, maybe even phosphate poisoning from sewer gas, or some other gasses,open a window avoid sugars besides fruit, make sure you are not being exposed to fumes of any sort, open a window. JMO

The symptoms he's describing in no way "fit the bill" for an elevated blood pressure. I'd call those symptoms fairly generalized overall at best, and could be symptoms of a variety of different things. In the event your blood sugar drops suddenly or significantly, (even if it still remains within a normal range at end result) this can cause these type of symptoms.
Episodes of hypoglycemia can most certainly still exist despite having just eaten a meal, or intake of a simple sugar. Insulin is a VERY powerful hormone. There in no way needs to be a certain pattern here to rule this out. The pathways our bodies utilize and control insulin can be altered by these type of pharmacological additions making symptoms erratic and non-correlating at times.
To add some objective support, i'd suggest getting a blood sugar check next time it happens.

whatever it is its not hypo. been off sd for a few days now. worst episode was last night right after i ate. i had to lay down because i thought i was going to pass out. Couldn't think clearly or anything. Lasted well over an hour, and started ten minutes after my nolva dosage. Now i'm still feeling strange and light-headed today regardless of diet. Don't think its blood pressure because i get bloody noses when high and none so far. I'm getting quite worried.

I would like to hear what you are eating and drinking during the day. Give me the full daily diet. Also include preworkout drinks, supplements, etc.

You got it Partyman? Well party on then...
If you guys want to work with your sugar levels, buy some bulk Gymnema Sylvestre and take it 15 minutes prior to eating. Make sure you eat though You'll feel hypo if you don't. Gymnema reduces the amount of circulating blood sugar as well as increases the number of Beta Cells in the pancreas. Beta cells produce insulin. If you take it powder form in your mouth, anything sweet taken after it will not taste nearly as sweet. It's wacky weird. Try it.
Insulin is the most anabolic hormone in the body.
