Here are the symptoms: abnormal hunger pangs, NOT appetite, not exactly hunger something similar, lightheaded, clammy (sometimes), sweaty (sometimes) faint like, causes palpitations or ectopic beats, then leads to angina, feel a surge of hormones, could be cortisol, could insulin, could be adrenaline, not sure. Blood sugar level SOMETIMES goes up, not always, and as for the A1c test, which is unreliable, it was negative. Not done a glucose challenge test, yet, which from what I read is also unreliable. As for diabetes, its difficult to diagnose, because symptoms fluctuate, are erratic, unreliable. I also suffer from heart failure which has worsened recently, and I attribute the worsening those symptoms...

I met many who suffered similar symptoms, some ended up dead, some in diabetic coma, others heart attacks or strokes, some got diagnosed with diabetes, after the heart attack!! Their glucose challenge test was NORMAL. Confused? I am..

Who knows could a nutritional deficiency, but which one(s)? Advice please???
