Hypoglycemia was a fashionable diagnosis in the 70's and 80's for
for a broad range of symptoms. These included: headaches, fatigue,
tremulousness, and palpitations after eating a meal rich in carbohydrates.
They now call this Reactive Hypoglycemia.
The diagnosis is based on a blood sugar level of below 50 milligrams per deciliter and also if the patient improves directly upon eating.
Most doctors say that the diagnosis is quite rare.
But if you are one who has been diagnosed with this, I hope this page helps you.
RHG is common in people with FMS & MPS complex.
In FMS, it is enhanced by dysfunctional neurotransmitter regulation and other systemic mechanisms.
With FMS, you crave carbohydrates but cannot make efficient use of them.
This is due to an electronic imbalance and other biochemical imbalances in the body.
Controlling intake of sweets may help and contribute to your feeling
better. Irregular meals, caffeine, and alcohol can disrupt the balance of
glucose in the body. Small, regular meals throughout the day can help keep the levels of glucose more even.
