Diet For Hypoglycemia Without Diabetes

The type of hypoglycemia that occurs in people without diabetes is referred to as reactive hypoglycemia. Reactive hypoglycemia would be the results of too much insulin secreted or not enough glucagon released after a meal, which lead to low blood sugar levels a few hours after eating. If you blood sugars are too low -- below 70 mg/dL -- you may feel dizzy, light-headed, tired, hungry and confused. A few changes to your diet can help you prevent reactive hypoglycemia. Video of the Day Instead of eating two to three large meals, split your food intake into five to six smaller meals. Eating too much at once can stimulate the overproduction of insulin and increase your risk of experiencing an hypoglycemic episode. Space your meals evenly throughout the day, every two to three hours, and don't forget to reduce the amounts of food you eat at each meal to avoid gaining weight.

    Metformin - 1000mg x2 day has it caused any weight gain with anyone?

    A1C normal for 4 years, should I ask doc to reduce cause I feel I'm gaining weight the longer I'm taking it, but I have no other side effects. Weight gain is not a phobia/image thing it's a health concern only because I'm taking gabapentin 900mg 3xday. see my concern

    You're A1C is normal you want to stop what is making it normal. That makes no sense. Metformin usually causes weight loss, in fact is used for weight loss. I would suggest the gabapentin is the problem. It is known for weight gain.

    Not meaning to be mean sounding cause that's not what I want anyone to read this as. Like I said, weight gain is not a worry about image. I'm not asking this question to be taken as shallow of a person as that. I have so MANY help problems stacked up due to a severe toxicity poisoning that I have not recovered from and won't due to the poison that took place from silicone implants leaking for 10 yrs. I was so sick, took that long to find Holistic surgeon 200 miles from home that had knowledge. 3 surgeries later- 2 weeks apart (3 because my chest cavity was black mold and fungus, to go in and scrap out dead tissue replace clogged drainage tubes and 6 month bedridden and nurse care. so yes weight gain would be a concern since I can barely get around now, do you understand a little more now. This site is to help understand meds. I am not planning on stopping my Metformin. That would be dumb since I do want my A1C to stay normal range.
