No: In years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia; it doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal. It is not hypoglycemia, which doesn't occur unless you're receiving treatment for diabetes or have had GI surgery, cancer, severe liver or kidney disease. For normals check diabetes.Org. If overweight, lose.
