I’m not asking for medical advice but I’m wondering why, very occasonally, if I haven’t eaten, I’ll get shakey. It doesn’t happen often and I’m healthy (not overweight, I exercise a bunch, and my blood work is good), so what can make the body occasionally not handle not eating well?
For example, yesterday I was very busy and only wound up consuming at most maybe four or five hundred calories before I got home at 7pm. I wasn’t starving so decided to do a quick vaccuum. Midway through, I realized I was sweating but just thought I was hot. Then my hands started shaking and I finally realized I hadn’t eaten much. Today I still feel kinda shakey.
But usually, I’ll just hungry and eat. Why was yesterday diifferent? Unusual occurances:
I’d been out in 100 degree heat for a couple of hours. Can heat exposure contribute?
Because of the heat, I got a large slushie with sugar. I almost never drink sugared drinks. Can a large intake of sugar mess up insulin levels to create a low blood sugar situation?
Do female hormones affect blood sugar levels?
I’ve tried googling these questions but I haven’t found much.
