Do I have low blood sugar?

Patient

Q: Hi doctor, I started jogging and went on a no starch diet this year, I have been feeling great until recently. Lately I have been eating and sleeping alot and craving something sweet, especially desserts. Should I be worried?

Symptoms:  Fatigue, increased appetite and sweet cravings
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
The symptoms you are getting are not due to Hypoglycemia. These symptoms are just because of craving as you are not taking any sugar products.
I would advise you not to devoid yourself completely of sugar products. Take everything in moderation. Do regular exercises.
I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
