Hypoglycemic?

Patient

Q: Hi my name is Adam. I am 24 year old male and I worry that I am hypoglycemic. I have had sporadic symptoms of hypoglycemia since I was young but they are so uncommon that I usually did not pay them any attention. The sy mptoms I refer to are shaking cokd sweat lightheaded and extreme thirstyness I decided recently to check myself so I bought a glucose meter and did a couple fasting tests and 2 houra tests. My results for the fasting tests were 86 and 82. The results of the 2 hour tests were 96 and 102. There was one instance when I took a test three hours after eatinf and I had 62 and 72. At first I registered 62 but did it again because I wanted to nake sure and it said 72. I wouod say I have symptoms maybe 4 to 6 times a year and I just want to make sure I don't have an underlying condition. Thank you for your help! Am I hypoglycemic?
