Is a diabetic to eat more of complex carbohydrates and reduce simple carbs...What are foods having complex carbs and will it cotrol PP sugar levels.

But I doubt the psychological effect has either a physiologic basis nor a physiologic consequence (the sugar only feels low). ...Read more

Have hypocly. Was tested for islet tumors, don't have any. Don't eat sugar or high carbs, sugar still drops to 60's some am's. Why? Do eat proteins

Have hypocly. Was tested for islet tumors, don't have any. Don't eat sugar or high carbs, sugar still drops to 60's some am's. Why? Do eat proteins

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
