Hypoglycemia, Meal Planning, Food and Diet
Question from Easley, South Carolina, USA:
I have recently just been diagnosed with hypoglycemia, and I don't know what kind of diet I am supposed to be on.
Since hypoglycemia is caused by too much insulin in the system, it is best to eat foods which will not stimulate a lot of insulin to be released. In general, it is best to avoid concentrated sweets and to eat small meals at least six times a day. A diet which is balanced in protein, carbohydrate (other than sweets) and fat is appropriate. For further details, I would suggest you contact a dietitian who can help you plan a diet which will be appropriate for you.
