Reactive hypoglycemia symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Reactive hypoglycemia symptoms

hypoglycemia

I was diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia and was wondering if internal tremors or weakness in extremities was a symptom? I do have episodes where I get visible tremors in the hands and cold sweats but those symptoms usually do not come with this weakness I am feeling. I do notice that when I eat something, the weakness goes away.

An alternative would be to simply make the dietary changes needed to treat reactive hypoglycemia--avoid heavy carb loads, and instead have several small mixed meals(small carb, protein and fat in one meal) during the day. Hope this helps,take care.
I feel you, for sure. The kind of Hypoglycemia that we have is called Reactive Hypoglycemia. When you eat sugar or starch your body releases to much insulin and then your glucose level plumits. I went to my PCP two weeks ago with a list of symptoms. She told me "oh, I wouldn't be concerned. There are many things that could cause these symptoms." She was more concearned about why I even had a glucometer than my health (can you believe that ****?
1) Could I have REACTIVE hypoglycemia? If so, what is the best test for that? 2) Don't get hives/rash after food so my Doctor won't test for food allergies. Should I? No, I don't smoke or consume caffeine. Have normal blood pressure (more on the low side of normal), no heartburn/GERD, no anxiety/depression. I've covered the basics.
Well, my last test showed by levels were back to normal, yet my fatigue remains, so does the insomnia and depression (for which I take anti-depressants). My weight gain continues and I suffer from reactive hypoglycemia - yet it seems inconsistent. I track my food daily and often eating similar foods on consecutive days - most of the time I'm ok, then I can repeat a meal and have an attack. Don't understand why.
not so much a fatigue, but more like a sick, unwell, uneasy feeling throughout the day, and when my blood sugar becomes low, this feeling I have been having only increases as well as adding in the usual symptoms of hypoglycemia -- sweating, anxiety, feeling faint. Only eating a meal that isn't conductive to weight loss will I recover to an extent, but I still am not feeling well even when my sugar level recovers. I would say that maybe this happens 2-3 times per day.
You would do well to keep juice available in case it does. Symptoms of hypoglycemia to watch for in small children who aren't verbal enough to tell you if they feel woozy are: irritability or unexpected tears sleepiness chills, followed by breaking out in a sweat yawning for no apparent reason (a toddler I babysat would do this if his glucose was dropping...
Hi, I have reactive hypoglycemia. One of the best websites to learn about hypoglycemia is reactivehypoglycemia.net. I don't think it's possible to grow out of hypoglycemia. I'm a teenager and I've had it since I was two or so. I really wish though!!
If true hypoglycemia is rare, then when do they decide that this is not reactive hypoglycemia and decide to treat her for diabetes. I am really worried! This has been going on for a year now and I see symptoms getting worse and worry that I'm not doing enough but when the Ped Endo won't listen, what next?? **Do these numbers of the 145's 198's and 245's indicate a need for insulin? **Does her GTT reslut look like a typical or early Type 1 GTT result???
Until that time, eat small meals several times a day(about 5-6 small meals) containing some fat,protein and carb. This is the basic dietary recommendation for reactive hypoglycemia as well. Avoid simple carbs, sweets,sodas etc. Hope this helps, take care.
I have had the symptoms of hypoglycemia for many months now, I feel very weak and tired,shakey, and sweaty. I have tested my blood sugar, and when I feel this way, the results are usually in the 60's. I also have a rash on my chest and back, that will not go away. Is this because of the low sugar?? My question is, if I do go to the doctor, what can be done for the low sugar attacks??
I asked about low blood sugar since snacking sometimes helps. Both drs said hypoglycemia is over-dx'd and treated, and didn't think this was her issue. Diabetes does run in the family. I think GI isn't looking at her whole picture. Also, she has never been an anxious child, but there definitely is a psych. component now (behavior, moodiness, glum). I wonder if that is a result of feeling sick, not vice versa. Please help! Thanks.
I think there are two types of hypoglycemia. If it is reactive hypoglycemia the intake of sugar will depress blood sugar further. In the other type an intake of sugar will raise blood sugar. The latter would explain why the intake of sugar helps you. I hope other people on this forum can explain it better, since my knowledge is sketchy. I have reactive hypoglycemia.
fasting hypoglycemia often is. Symptoms Symptoms of both types resemble the symptoms that people with diabetes and hypoglycemia experience: hunger, nervousness, perspiration, shakiness, dizziness, light-headedness, sleepiness, confusion, difficulty speaking, and feeling anxious or weak. If you are diagnosed with hypoglycemia, your doctor will try to find the cause by using laboratory tests to measure blood glucose, insulin, and other chemicals that play a part in the body's use of energy.
Hi, A 3-hour GTT is still used by some doctors to diagnose what is called "reactive hypoglycemia" but on the whole many endocrinologists do not use it anymore. If you are having symptoms AND recorded low blood sugars on your own meter, this will usually suffice. You can proceed with that, or what most folks do is start with the dietary changes needed anyway and see if symptoms get better.
I have found these symptoms are similiar to Postprandial Reactive hypoglycemia. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced symptoms of Postprandial Reactive hypoglycemia and if they went away after your thyroid levels returned to normal.
They said that I showed signs of rective hypoglycemia but did not show absolute hypoglycemia. The doctor told me I was getting symptoms that felt like hypoglycemia because of the amount of adrenaline I produce (the stress release hormone). He said that this was because I used to be an athlete and through my teenage years I was brought up under immense competitive stress.
who thought not all of this was thyroid related. Underwent a 6 hr. glucose tolerance test that revealed reactive hypoglycemia. Went back for a check-up at the endo. last week to find out that she suggests a thyroidectomy because the Synthroid isn't working to keep the goiter/ nodules from growing. I have an app. with the ENT/surgeon next week to discuss surgery further. I just want to feel better.
Reactive hypoglycemia, simply put, is low blood sugar. The symptoms you are describing are typical of hypoglycemia, especially if they disappear when you eat. I too had blood tests, all that came back with a normal result. I then saw an endocrine specialist and she sent me for a six hour glucose tolerance test. This test involved drinking an orange liquid high in glucose and then testing my blood every half hour for six hours.
1) Could I have REACTIVE hypoglycemia? If so, what is the best test for that? GP tells me fasting glucose would cover that....even though I have the problems in response to food. 2) Don't get hives/rash after food so my GP won't test for food allergies/sensitivities. Could this be a possibility? If so, what kind of test is ordered for food sensitivities? 3) Any other suggestions?
most of them go away as soon as I eat something. Now sounds like hypoglycemia (reactive or whatever) but when I check my blood glucose, it is around 100 a bit more which means it's not hypoglycemia. . What else may be causing this? My docs say it's not asthma. Any other endocrine disorders such as Insulin Resistance can cause this? What else should I look into? Any doc here has a clue?
) Basically, I'm wondering whether I've developed reactive hypoglycemia, or whether this could be due to other causes. If so, what could those causes be? Here's a little history: About a year and a half ago I had a glucose tolerance test (2hr) and the following were my results: Fasting blood sugar: 79 1hr blood sugar: 81 2hr blood sugar: 71 At that point I had been feeling very similar symptoms.
My morning blood glucose is between 25-30mg/dL and I always feel like crap, I only experience reactive adrenergic symptoms like, moderate hypertension, sweating, arrhythmia, headache, lightheadedness, shaking and nausea during the episode.
of these symptoms and I am wondering if anyone here has ever had to deal with Hypoglycemia. My symptoms were again the cold sweats, light headedness, high anxiety (breathing pace increased and felt almost out of breath) and nausea. I checked my heart rate while this was going on (although it wasn't easy) and it was 84bpm which is fairly normal for me.
That sounds like Reactive Hypoglycemia, which is a condition where people's blood sugar drops after eating a meal high in carbs. You could try eating less carbs and see if it improves or you could visit your doctor.
For about the last month I've been weak, drowsey, lethargic, involuntary body shaking (torso tenses up and shakes, relieved by deep breaths) some heart palps and near syncope, near syncope when startled into tachycardia, pulse ranging from 50 to 120 at rest, with near syncope happening at the high end and weakness, heavy aching chest and dizziness occuring at the low end. Also have had some reactive hypoglycemia even after a solid meal.
Hypoglycemia~Subject:Hypoglycemic or diabetic symptoms in my 4 yr old daughter? After several work ups I am back.Spells do seem to be hypo.We now have a glucometer.The lowest so far was 35,the highest being 250 but very random/sporadic at best!Her endo saw a spell 5 mins after lab work was drawn on her.She fell out first time ever.BG *determined by lab results*at the time the blood was drawn was 66.Fell lower causing spell?
Would see your primary doctor to have symptoms evaluated including labs for electrolytes, thyroid, etc. This may be reactive hypoglycemia (as you suggested). I am not very familiar w/ Huntington's.
