Local therapy: There is a little evidence that supplements like chondroitin and glucosamine may help a little, and local anesthetic patches like Lidoderm might be helpful as well. Capsaicin cream can also help reduce the pain. Anti-inflammatory meds work, but you have to take prescription doses (ibuprofen 400-800 mg three to four times daily or naprosyn (naproxen) 500 mg twice a day) regularly for good effect. ...Read more

I've been on a reduced carb diet for reactive hypoglycemia for a few years but now more hypo episodes, is there any medicines that can help? Non diabetic

I've been on a reduced carb diet for reactive hypoglycemia for a few years but now more hypo episodes, is there any medicines that can help? Non diabetic

No: In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia.

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
