Reactive Hypoglycemia - January 12th 2012, 06:30 AM

For a while now, I have been having problems with what I think is a type of reactive hypoglycemia. It has been happening when I eat (or drink) sugar. I'll go down real fast with a headache, lethargy, and sometimes nausea.

I know it happens when I eat a lot of sugar, but the fast few times, it has happened when I eat very little sugar (a piece of candy)! I don't know what has changed! I like to eat sweets (not excessively), but I can't at all since this is happening. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

Also, what can I eat to satisfy my craving while not making me sick?

I would suggest going to your doctor. Have you ever had your blood sugars taken during these episodes? If so, what have they come back like?

I'm not entirely sure what you can have that'll help. Have you tried looking out for diabetic chocolate? I know you're not diabetic but maybe it'll prevent the reaction you get when you eat normal sweet foods.

But as I've said, it's vital that you go to your doctors to make sure it is not anything else.

I hope this has helped.

No, I don't like needles or pain, so I haven't had my blood sugar taken. Thank you for replying. I didn't think anyone would.
