If you are feeling dizzy all of the time, it could be low blood sugar which will cause dizziness when your blood sugar is low. Proper monitoring is important when it comes to diabetes and always checking blood sugar and eating withing your doctor guidelines is also important when it comes to diabetes.

Dizziness can be a common symptom of both hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Part of any diabetes treatment program will include frequent finger pricks to test blood glucose levels. If you are experiencing dizziness you should be testing your blood glucose. You should then treat any abnormal glucose levels according to your prescribed treatment plan.

When you have low blood sugar, one of the most common symptoms is dizziness. To get rid of this, simply eat something sugary and the dizziness should go away quickly.

Yes, dizziness can be a common side effect of having diabetes. Since your blood sugar levels can fall extremely low, this causes your body to feel dizzy.

Dizziness is a common problem when your blood sugar is too high or too low. Thus, if you have diabetes, it can actually be a warning sign that you need to check your blood sugar and take appropriate action. If the diabetes is under control, there should be no episodes of dizziness.
