A Food List For A Diet For Reactive Hypoglycemia

Reactive hypoglycemia is low blood sugar that occurs 3 to 4 hours after eating a meal. Symptoms include hunger, weakness, shakiness, lightheadedness, anxiety and confusion, according to MayoClinic.com. Reactive hypoglycemia requires a medical evaluation for a diagnosis. To treat your reactive hypoglycemia, you need to eat small frequent meals -- going no more than three hours without a meal -- that include foods high in fiber. Video of the Day Whole grains provide carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals. Carbohydrates in food turn into sugar and raise blood sugars.

    Hello all! I have been on here for a while and have lost a decent amount of weight...however I feel like I am not taking care of myself. You see, I have reactive hypoglycemia, and I struggle daily with the crashes of blood sugar. I was wondering if anyone else on here who has this condition would be willing to give me examples of their daily food intakes and maybe add me as a friend so that I can really work harder on taking care of myself. This site isn't just about losing weight. It's about being healthy. I think one of my greatest struggles with this is that I am a working mother to a very vibrant/energetic girl and my husbands works...ALOT... so it leaves a lot on me to do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    hey there, i may be able to help.
    i was officially diagnosed when i was about 17, but didn't notice the effects of the condition on my body/energy levels till i was about 20 (being a teen, right?! immune to everything)
    it was really bad when i was overweight, but since i've lost 50-60lbs i'm able to go longer without food and be less crabby when i am hungry.
    you can PM me with specific questions if you want, or friend me good luck

    My mom is hypoglycemic....I'm not just to note
    Would it help to space your food out so you're eating smaller but more frequent meals to keep from crashing?
