Hypoglycemia and Neuroglycopenia

And the complications begin.

I have an appt. w/ my PCP on Tuesday.

I have an appt. w/ my NUT next week.

My surgeon's nurse told me to follow a low carb diet and if I get a low drink some milk. She said though if I follow the LC diet I should be fine.

Through reading I am finding that I need to give up the caffiene and artifical sweetners as well.

Health is supposed to be my #1 priority here so I just need to do this. I know I do not like the feeling of low blood sugar so I'm willing to do it.

The only fear I have though is that I know that following a LC diet will make me drop weight, which is fine til I get around 130 lbs. But what do I do then? I can't have low blood sugar, but at some point I need to stop losing weight too.

I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

Hi, Amber. I'm glad you found out what is going on. Do some research on the Glycemic Index. You can follow a diet lower in carbs, but make sure they're carbs that are low on the index. That should help you to stop from having these lows by doing low carb, but also help to stop your weight loss when you get to that point. Kind of like South Beach, instead of Atkins. I hope you get to feeling better soon. =)

WOW! Glad you found out what is going on.... I agree with Kyla.. something LOWER carb or Lower GIndex should help even you out but allowing you some of the things you love.

Did you see I gave you props on my FIRST ever VLog!
