Falling Asleep After Eating

ive never experienced something like this before, but it could be as simple as the time of day your eating it as well as previous activities. Try eating chocolate from a different company, then we can come up with a plan... You need a diabetic evaluation and an hba1c test. If it is diabetes, find another health care practicioner. He/she should have ordered this test instead of dismissing your complaint. What you suffer from is probably narcolepsy, which is a neurological disorder. This is thought to be caused by low protein called hypocretin, which is made in the brain. The symptoms are an urge to sleep especially after meals. Sleep studies and EEG are done to rule out other causes of poor sleep and insomnia. Eating light and frequent meals during the day helps. Also assigning a nap time during the day often helps. You can take a light meal before this. At times some ante depressants are prescribed to control the symptoms.Do consult your doctor and get a referral for a sleep specialist and a neurologist.Other possibilities are pancreatic insulinomas causing a surge of insulin production after meals, hypoglycemia and an urge to sleep. In women it can also be due to PCOD. thanx i wi Continue reading >>

    I have had that happen, but only after eating too many carbs so that my glucose level went above 160 or so. Roast chicken with string beens shouldn't do that!

    If I eat too many carbs I will get tired but it doesn't seem like chicken and beans would be too many carbs. Are you taking 1000 or 2000 of metformin? Your before meal number (152) is a little high. What are your other numbers during the day.

A powerful tool for helping insomnia, a combination of Binaural Beats for Delta Waves and the 852 hz Ancient Solfeggio Frequency. This frequency will balance your Third Eye Chakra while inducing deep states of relaxation. The binaural beat will stimulate a deep sleep state. Binaural beats, or binaural tones, are auditory processing artifacts, or apparent sounds, caused by specific physical stimuli. This effect was discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove and earned greater public awareness in the late 20th century based on claims coming from the alternative medicine community that binaural beats could help induce relaxation, meditation, creativity and other desirable mental states. Binaural beats reportedly influence the brain in more subtle ways through the entrainment of brainwaves and provide other health benefits such as control over pain. Binaural beats may influence functions of the brain in ways besides those related to hearing. This phenomenon is called "frequency following response". The concept is that if one receives a stimulus with a frequency in the range of brain waves, the predominant brainwave frequency is said to be likely to move towards the frequency of the st

Some times after I eat meals depending on what I eat I'll be sitting at home or even at the doctors office with my daughter and I'll fall asleep. My kids say mom are you asleep?

You should test your blood sugars to confirm your suspicions, it's about the only way to really be sure. She didn't say she had the shakes real bad. Yeah, it would be good to test your bG before you eat and then 2 hours afterward. Sometimes, too, even if your bG is not too high after a meal, it still may make you sleepy if it has moved up a lot from your pre-meal bG. On a different line of thought, do you snore? Do you feel sleepy whenever you sit down and get still...or watch TV...or stop at an extended traffic light? It only happens when I eat a big meal and a carb high meal. My bg will be 108 bf i eat and it will be in the 200's sometimes after Continue reading >>
