Diabetic diet hypoglycemia

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic diet hypoglycemia


Avatar f tn You may have pre-diabetes, and need to go on a diabetic diet. Meanwhile, make sure you have both protein and carbohydrates with all meals, and with all snacks, which you seem to be doing. You also might need to get a dietary consult and/or see an endocrinologist, for both are specially trained in working with people with blood sugar problems.
1662361 tn?1302765972 I am 23, I know I am over weight, I diet and exercise but never loss weight. I have been test for diabetes since I was 12, and my levels have always been low. I have noticed lately tho when I test because my mom and grandma are diabetic that my sugar levels are from 50 to maybe 75 no matter what I eat. I snack on granola and some times hard candy and sometimes cookies. I just feel sick all the time, and dizzy and i get really shaky and, Nothing I have been doing is working.

Avatar f tn I followed the diabetic diet, mostly. I always made sure to eat every two hours, avoided refined sugar and carbs (anything that's going to cause a big dump of insulin, because the rebound hypoglycemia and drop your numbers very low). Avoid junk food. Make sure you get protein. I ate a lot of peanut butter on wheat and milk. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I'm currently having multiple daily bouts of hypoglycemia - my doctors can't/won't answer my question. I'm taking IVIG, Imuran and Ultram - no steroids or antidiabetics. I'm very well aware of the hypoglycemia (I feel symptomatic at BS of 80 & less)any answers would be welocome.
Avatar n tn Recently I discovered that HCV can cause Hypoglycemia(low blood sugar). I have recently changed my diet and just about eliminated all of the symptoms. Headaches, stinging sweat, dizziness, tiredness, blurred vision, chronic backache, salt cravings, stomach problems, tinnitus and brain fog just to mention a few. (a partial list is at www.drz.org/asp/conditions/hypoglycemia2.asp) If you have these or other symptoms on the list do yourself a favor and get you glucose checked.
Avatar n tn We are not doctors on this Forum, but folks who either are parents of type 1 children or type 1 diabetic folks ourselves. Yes, your symptoms do sound like those of hypoglycemia, but an infection can also cause drenching sweats. When your body is battling an infection, stress hormones are released, and it is possible, I suppose, that your body is just not functioning at its best right now. Whether you have had mild hypoglycemia before or not, of course, we can't tell.
687079 tn?1230952212 what could cause reaccurent severe hypoglycemia in a type 2 diabetic who does not take any medicine or insulin and is diet controlled?
649848 tn?1534637300 Now that I've had the GTT, my doctor says instead of pre-diabetes, I have Reactive Hypoglycemia... Because of the pre-diabetes diagnosis, I have tried to follow a diabetic diet for some time to prevent full blown diabetes; however, since having this test, I find myself starving and getting weak/shakey within a short period of eating, no matter what kind of food I eat. I also have Hashimoto's/hypothyroidism.
Avatar n tn The pediatrician gave us the result of ketonic hypoglycemia. Is there a special diet i need to put him on? How often would he have episodes? And could he have had a one time only episode?
Avatar n tn No, he does not sound like he is diabetic, but severe hypoglycemia can be just as scary for parents to deal with.
Avatar f tn Many people find that hypoglycemia is the precursor to diabetes. For diet, I believe you should be eating a lower carb (avoid sugars), moderate protein, high fat diet. Small snacks of nuts, dried fruits, between meals. The problem with eating sugar all the time is that when you eat sugar you make your body produce extra insulin this is what later causes you to go low. You need to stop eating the fast acting sugar in order to stop the lows. How low is low?
Avatar n tn There is no way to know from your post if you are diabetic or not. Some people do experierience hypoglycemia without being diabetic. I would definitely suggest not waiting till 11AM to eat, that would certainly make the problem worse. Eating regular meals or snacks could certainly help with hypoglycemia whatever its cause. However, as soon as you were able I would get a blood glucose reading.
Avatar f tn I spoke to my doc about it and he said if I can control it with diet I wouldn't have to. Also, if I ran the risk of causing any damage to my baby from it going untreated I told him I would 100% take it. Happy to say I'm 32 weeks on sat and have been at a healthy sugar level (below 7) since Dec 23rd.
Avatar n tn I am a 41 year old female that has hypothyroidism and hypoglycemia and am trying to lose some weight, about 10 to 15 pounds. I take meds for my thyroid, watch what I eat and exercise 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hrs a day 5 times a week. I've tried following a low blood sugar diet and was able to lose about 4-5 lbs the first week, but for the next 5 weeks I lost nothing. This last week I went off the diet slightly and gained 2-3 lbs. back. Am I eating the wrong things?
Avatar n tn breads. I'd encourage you to learn a lot about hypoglycemia from reliable sources such as the hypoglycemia foundation: http://www.hypoglycemia.org/ It is not uncommon for hypoglycemia to preceed diabetes. I visualize the process as one in which the pancreas spurts & sputters and eventually fatigues into diabetes. Not everyone who has hypoglycemia develops diabetes.
Avatar m tn It seems like hypoglycemia, but I'm not diabetic, and I ate the day before, even having had cheese and crackers right before I went to bed. I wasn't actually starving. I could have been a little dehydrated, but the yogurt wouldn't have instantly fixed that - nor would I have felt intensely hungry. I've never had this happen, even after fasting for 24 hours or more for surgeries, blood tests, or community service.
Avatar n tn I Google'd "hypoglycemia causes" with the first link showing a gazillion reasons for misdiagnosis. http://tinyurl.
Avatar n tn Is hypoglycemia the same as diabetes? What's the difference between type 1 and type2 diabetes? is it the age of the person that makes the difference between the two types?
Avatar n tn What are her chances of becoming diabetic? Her doctor said hypoglycemia sometimes precedes diabetes in children. Is is possible to "grow out of" hypoglycemia? If so, what are the chances of this happening?
Avatar n tn My husband has had diabetes for 10 years and had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital for severe hypoglycemia with a seizure. This is the first time this has ever happened to him. It has now been 5 days since the seizure and he still can barely get around due to extremely sore back muscles. I'm assuming this is due to the muscle spasms that occured during the seizure. He's taking ibuprofin and a muscle relaxant prescribed by the doctor.
Avatar f tn Fasting sugar was 80 and fasting insulin was always 6-9. He diagnosed adrenal fatigue and reactive hypoglycemia due to poor diet. My problems improved with diet overhaul and life went on. A few years later, I suddenly began losing weight rapidly without cause. I got down to 110 pounds, and I am a very tall woman. My BMI was under 18. I was put through another battery of the same tests, and everything was normal except the blood sugar dropping to the 70's after meals.
Avatar n tn 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???
190341 tn?1192166779 As I become more diabetic, the spike downward will not be as sharp. Why is that you may ask? Reactive Hypoglycemia is a condition where the Pancreas is continuously putting insulin into the bloodstream because of the high sugar in your system and the pancreas has a defect that is causing it not to shut off the insulin valve. This is because of all the sugar that has been in my diet for many many years that resulted in abuse to my pancreas and other organs.
2118271 tn?1337466704 I have a question, have you been diagnosed with diabetes, or hypoglycemia? If not, then why would you be checking your blood sugar? Were you instructed to do so by your doc? If you've decided to do this on your own, this is another one of those things that will fuel anxiety, just like someone checking their blood pressure or pulse frequently.
946578 tn?1258666887 Does anyone with sphincter of oddi dysfunction have any issues withy hypoglycemia or type two diabetes? I have had all the symptoms of SOD and I am going in to get checked for it. I have the pain, nausea, elevated liver enzymes, back pain, etc. I have been misdiagnosed with everything everyone else has... IBS, gaul bladder disease, pancreatitus, acid reflux, I have been told I was faking it for attention, asked if I had broken ribs...
Avatar f tn The first diet you could try to help control your symptoms is a gluten free diet. A gluten free diet is a diet free of wheat, barley, rye and possibly oats. A gluten intolerance (which is when someone doesn't have the enzymes or not enough enzymes to break down the gluten in the above foods) can cause all of your above symptoms - PCOS, RA, hypoglycemia, etc. It's easy to look this up on the internet.
