I have been diagnosed with Hyperglaciemia just a couple of weeks ago?

I have been treating it under a doctors care and feel much better. My question is is mild depression a part of the symptoms of hyperglycemia too? I find myself happy but have a hard time not sinking into a kind of mild depression as I go through my daily tasks. Is depression a part of it? What are the best sites on the net that deal with this problem? Thanks for any help.

    If you mean hypOglycemia, then yes, it can and will affect you emotionally. I have it. Hunger is the symptom I feel the least, so I don't always eat when I should. I can get very edgy and then after I eat, I am calm. Other symptoms of low blood sugar for me include: the shakes, a headache, anxiety, and my worst is nausea. That is the extreme one and then I know it is urgent I eat. I don't tolerate refined sugar very well either. If I were to eat a bowl of sugar sweetened cereal, for example, I will go through a complete mood change for the worse. Eliminate refined sugar as much as you can. Having depression along with low blood sugar is rough, but symptoms can be managed with diet and medication. Caffeine is a big no-no. It will interfere with your ability to get a good night's sleep. It is a central nervous system stimulant. See a dietitian about setting up a good eating plan and schedule. Also, last but not least, get a medic alert emblem and have 'hypoglycemia' engraved on it. You have a chronic medical condition and need this.

    I too have too have Hypoglycemia....thankfully without any depression. But, yes it CAN be part of the symptoms. We should all remember that out diet effects many aspects of our health, including mood. (just think of a kid you may know and see what happens after a candy binge).

    In fact, many doctors are now looking at a very controlled diets to treat depression.

    IF your being treated now, I suspect your mild depression will clear up in very short time..... please mention this to your doctor....but also think and notice things on your own.... YOU are the BEST one to know HOW and WHAT you may feel when you Eat certain foods (there may be a delay of a day after eating something. Good Luck
