I am hypoglycemic.
I was diagnosed when I was 17, after my 6th or 7th episode of passing out during the class period immediately following lunch.
My diet consists of lots and lots of protein, little bitty amounts of carbs, and avoid sucrose like the plague. I also am supposed to have small meals throughout the day.
I usually start out breakfast with an egg, a piece of toast, and a small (4 oz) glass of juice. 2-3 hours later, I'll have another piece of toast with peanut butter, and a glass of milk or a bottle of water. 2 hours after that, I have lunch - usually a salad with feta cheese and walnuts on it, sometimes I'll dice up ham or chicken if we have some left over, and a glass of tea. 2-3 hours after lunch, I have some sort of veggie sticks, or maybe an apple, either with cheese or more peanut butter. Dinner, I splurge, and will do a full meal of meat, starch, veggie, fruit, and milk. I do that because I don't like having another snack between dinner and bed, usually just a glass of tea or water.
If I start feeling weak, juice is an instant pick-me-up, but I have to have protein pretty quickly thereafter, or I'll crash and burn.
Amazingly, though, I haven't had any problems keeping my hypoglycemia under control since my DD was born. I was certain it would get worse while breastfeeding...I also didn't develop gestational diabetes, even though the doctor who initially diagnosed me assured me I would develop g.d. if I ever got pregnant.
For those of you who were told you didn't have it, did you have a 12 hour gtt? That's what it took for me to be diagnosed...it sucked, I wasn't allowed to eat anything for 24 hours prior, then had to have blood drawn 13 times in one day.
I was a sad panda...and my arms actually scarred from it.
