Hello everyone, I don't have diabetes but I do have Hypoglycemia. Its not a daily problem and will just happen out of the blue. Once it does happen it seems to happen for about three days in a row. This morning I ate waffles with syrup and drank two glasses of o.j. Then about an hour later I started to feel sick to my stomach and my a bit faint. I took my blood sugar and it was in the low 70's. Anything under 80's cause me problems. So I'm wondering, why didn't the waffles and o.j. keep my sugar level up? I can't figure out why it would drop. Also, I don't know if this matters or not but for the last few days I have been ill and have only been eating soup and rice. I thought that since you all have to deal with Diabetes that maybe you could help me with this question.View Thread
Nutrijoy, Wow, that was quite informative. I liked how you wrote it in a way that I could understand. So if I'm going to eat bread, it should be whole grain. I do eat a lot of vegies but not much fruit. I have apple sauce but I bet thats not a good thing to eat if you have reactive Hypoglycemia. I guess I need to eat more fresh fruit.
You said something about lack of glucagon thats normally processed by the liver. I take medication that affects the absorption of other medication in the liver and kidneys. I wonder if that medication also affects the way that the liver processing glucagon.
Thank you so very much. You have been a great deal of help.View Thread
