    Blood sugar. Pre diabetic?

    If I go too long without eating I get grouchy, nauseous, shakey.

    If I eat too much sugar (not a lot for SAD) but a lot for ME! (One small tub of haagen daaz for example) I become immidiately tired. (So tired I could sleep.) It passes fairly quickly.

    I don't eat a lot, but I've noticed this reaction recently.

    I've been low sugar / grain / 'carb' for a year, and otherwise feeling great, with plenty of energy. I used to be able to go all day without eating when I was younger, not so anymore! Are these signs of pre diabetes?

    What is your overall caloric intake? I wouldn't jump to the "worst" conclusion first; maybe you're just hungry!

    Go to Wal-Mart and get a Hemoglobin A1C test kit (about $10). It's a simple finger-prick that you mail off. Very accurate. If it comes back above normal I would make some adjustments in your diet.
