In brief: Small frequent meals
A diet that is high in protein, high on fiber and low in carbohydrates can help.
Having 100-200 calories every 2-3 hours will keep blood sugars and metabolism even.

In brief: Low blood sugar
Another thought, how do you know you have low blood sugar? Are you relating the symptoms you might have-lightheaded, dizzy, weak, sweaty, fatigue , hunger, etc.
Make sure that you have a home blood glucose monitor with new tech and are using it correctly. Especially, when you feel unwell take your blood sugar immediately if you have readings that are low in conjuction with sx.Please see an endocrin.

In brief: Find cause
If the blood sugar is low when fasting, it is essential to rule out an insulinoma and nesidioblastosis.
Weight loss is impossible when these are present, and they will eventually kill the person. If this is simply "low blood sugar", the fad diagnosis for people who get queezy two hours or so after eating, calorie-restricted, adequate-protein diet and exercise should work as usual.

In brief: Cause?
What is the cause of your low blood sugar? Generally, unless someone has an insulinoma (tumor making Insulin inappropriately) or liver failure, most ppl are able to keep their blood sugars normal.
Question here is why you have low bg? Even if it's in 40's, that might be normal (depending on symptoms)...Finding out if it's a real prob can simplify ur life.
