flyingmonkey Posted March 3, 2006 Report Share Posted March 3, 2006 Does anyone find here that they experience frequent episodes of hypoglycemia? Also has anyone been tested and can someone give advice for preventing it? (other than staying away from simple sugars and starches and such things, which I am already trying to do.)I've noticed that if I have things like fruit or chocolate, or even a white potato, I feel absolutely awful afterwards and get more symptomatic, even if there is a time shortly after where I have more energy. Also, I know I've mentioned before that if I don't eat for a certain amount of time, I start getting catatonic, my brain shuts down and I can make decisions at all. Does this sound like an episode of hypoglycemia?I was recently tested for a bunch of things and the results said I have "low fasting insulin." My doc said it was nothing and wouldn't explain it. What does it mean? I know that too MUCH insulin causes a fall in blood sugar, and not enough causes a rise. SO I have no idea what impact this would have ... I don't know, I'm confuzzled. Also, I don't suppose the ANS controls blood sugar or insulin somehow?OK, sorry for so many questions.--flyingmonkey Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
