Hypoglycemia

While my son does not have diabetes, his genetic disorder produces the same end result as hypoglycemia, and I read with interest the article on the uncooked cornstarch bars. Are such bars available to be purchased in my area? They would be helpful in keeping his sugar levels stable.

A few weeks back, my son had a severe hypoglycemic episode at night. Since we cannot pinpoint what lead up to this episode, I’m so afraid it will happen again. How often do these type of things happen without good explanation?

My father’s wife is 85 years old and has had two episodes of severe hypoglycemia in the last two days, resulting in ambulance trips to the hospital. What is your opinion of any hypoglycemia warning devices that might be available? Would someone of this age and incapacity be a good candidate and which product?

My almost four year old adopted son had hypoglycemia after birth, and I have seen him have completely behavior very much out of character which is normal after getting some sugar. I’ve taken him to two doctors about this problem who have both said that his fits are most likely just typical temper tantrums. Does this sound like he could still have hypoglycemia?

Recently, our daughter had early morning shaking followed by a seizure, even with a slightly elevated blood sugar. For quite some time since she has been on the pump, we have noticed this early morning shaking but it never lead to a seizure. Can physical activity the night before and/or lack of sleep or fluctuating basal rates cause these seizure-like symptoms?

My wife and I have recently had a new baby whose blood sugar at birth sugar level was practically zero. For the last two days, his blood sugar has been staying around the 20s mg/dl [1.1 mmol/L], but will go as high as the 70s mg/dl [3.9 mmol/L] sometimes. Could this be a sign of hypoglycemia? Would this most likely be a case in which my son’s body just needs a little time to get adjusted?

My daughter has fainting spells. I have had test after test and they keep coming back normal. Could she have hypoglycemia that is brought about with exercise or by getting to hot?
