I find this interesting.  I also remember having hypoglycemic episodes 
before I was diagnosed.  You know, the ones where you can't think straight 
and you shake because you've missed a meal?  One of my daughter's friends 
is now pregnant and she told me that she's being tested for gestational 
diabetes now because she gets hypoglycemic when she doesn't eat.
