Can you tell me, if I am hypoglycemic can I eat more calories daily than the average person?

Never: Your effort is to work with a dietitian to understand a correct diet for you.This would focus on having the right amount of slow release carbs in your diet that can be converted to sustain a normal blood sugar. Quick release sugars would only be needed for a rescue if your BS drops. If you take in more calories, you just get overweight, which makes figuring out how to eat more difficult. ...Read more

If the paleo diet consists of no carbs or grains how is a hypoglycemic person supossed to follow it ??

Hypoglycemia: A spike in blood glucose (from eating sugar) is followed by a spike in insulin (which moves sugar from the blood into the cells) but these insulin spikes often "overshoot" resulting in hypoglycemia. So interestingly it is the high sugar levels which CAUSE the sugar crash/hypoglycemia later. Eating paleo will actually improve hypoglycemia AND hyperglycemia giving you steady glucose levels all day ...Read more

What exactly does it mean if you hypoglycemic?

What exactly does it mean if you hypoglycemic?

No: In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal. A glucose tolerance test (if you've had one) is not and never will be a valid diagnostic test for hypoglycemia. Don't waste your money o GTT or any fad diets of treatments. Lose wt if heavy. ...Read more
