Q:
I'm 15 and I have been real dizzy,tired, thirsty,shaky, my fingers and toes are always cold,and lately I've been getting black in my visions so everything is blacked out. I just got my blood tested at the nurses office during school right after lunch around 5 min. I had 125 count is that normal.

A:
I do hope the nurses have already steered you to your physician to get this all checked; it sounds like something neurological that I certainly am not qualified to answer from my keyboard. 125 blood sugar after lunch is quite normal, depending on what you ate. If you are showing symptoms of low blood sugar--hypoglycemia--you will experience dizziness, fatigue, shakiness on a more regular basis if you have not been eating properly. The type of blackouts you are describing are not usual.
