Salad's not the: Culprit, but your overall diet may be at fault, especially if you don't have anything else other than salad to carry you through the day, and/or have a light breakfast too. If you ate other high carb (other than croutons, salad dressing, and cheese) with the meal, often people do experience a 'post-prandial alkaline tide' that can make you feel tired, as all the circulation is going to your gut. ...Read more

Gluc level 65 one hour after eating salad w/croutons, salmon, & caramel apple. Not diabetic (I think). Is this LOW gluc level unusual? Problematic?

Gluc level 65 one hour after eating salad w/croutons, salmon, & caramel apple.  Not diabetic (I think).  Is this LOW gluc level unusual?  Problematic?

Not a problem: Hi. We've got to stop meeting like this! ;-)
No, that glucose is fine and not low. In a person who takes insulin, we'd be getting concerned, because injected insulin will lower sugar whether the patient needs sugar lowered further or not. But your pancreas will automatically regulate insulin release to keep sugar normal. Glucoses in the 60s and 50s are seen all the time in healthy non-diabetics. ...Read more

You can ask his family doctor or rheumatologist, who may also know drug reps or have other options. Finally, check with the hospital in your area. Sometimes they have 'sponsorship' programs for the uninsured that help with the cost of care and medications. I know it's frustrating. Sorry! ...Read more
