In brief: For reactive hypogly
Eat only meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry and low starch veggies, drink only water. In other words avoid all carbs, carbs will only briefly raise your sugar levels, then Insulin levels and then your sugar will drop again.
The fats in the meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry will act like a "log on your metabolic fire" to keep your blood sugar stable for hours, without raising insuli.

In brief: Careful watching
Hypoglycemia occurs if there is too much medication in relation to the diet and exercise, all of which can lower the blood sugar.
Alcohol can also lower the blood sugar, especially on an empty stomach. In general, if everything is similar from day to day there is little problem, but if any of the above changes hypoglycemia may occur.
