Hi everyone. Im abit concerned, always suffered with my blood sugar level. Always wanting to eat something sweet, even shortly after a main meal.

Am on anti D's and have just been put on Yasmin pill and since then I think it has got worse.

Everytime I turn my head I get a knid f tingly/ fuzzy/ spinny feeling in my head and get very shaky if not eatne for a while.

Thinking of doing a home testing kit but wondering if anyone can advise further please?

How long have you been on the antidepressants? Lots of them can cause dizziness and shakiness.

Why don't you make an appointment with your practice nurse for a fingerprick blood sugar test? That might give you an idea of what's going on.

sounds like you have hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) rather than diabetes which would cause high blood sugar. You should see your gp though.
