Low blood sugar or hypoglycemia symptoms typically worsen several hours after a meal. Scientific studies show that there's much more to hypoglycemia symptoms and hypoglycemia treatments than just low blood sugar. The adrenal stress hormones, adrenalin, and cortisol, are critically involved. In fact, most hypoglycemia symptoms are caused not by low blood sugar per se, but by an over-reaction of adrenalin and cortisol discharge-part of the body's defense against blood sugar falling too low. A broad holistic approach to hypoglycemia treatments provides the best results.


Which of the low blood sugar diets are best for your individual needs? Each version of the hypoglycemia diet has its pros and cons. When we see patients in the office, we helping you select which diet is best for your individual needs. Surprisingly we find that for about 80% of our patients with hypoglycemia the best hypoglycemia diets are those that are relatively high in total carbohydrates, but very low in sugar and most grains. Instead take your carbs almost all from colored fruits, vegetables, berries, and selected, coarse whole grains.
