Anyone with PCOS? Reactive Hypoglycemic?

exercise will also bring your blood sugars down in addition to stress and the type of foods you eat. I fyou fix your lows with just sugary things like candy and soda, you will surely plummet back down soon. make sure that you eat some protein AFTER you eat the quick sugars to maintain.

Anyone with PCOS? Reactive Hypoglycemic?

Thanks everyone for your reply. I am so glad to hear I am not the only one having to deal with this, but on the other hand, hate to hear that others suffer with this too. I am waiting to hear from my doctors office on what dietician they are going to send me to. My doctor diagnosed me clinically, without the glucose tolerance test. I guess because I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and already at risk for developing TYPE II Diabetes and I already have the Insulin Resistance problem thing. I just spoke with my Repro Endocrinologist doc on the phone and he advised me to check with my dietician and to see if they want me to do the glucose tolerance test or not. Should I ask for one to be done or not? Ugh, I am so confused! If you would like to e-mail me, that would be great! I would love to hear what books and resources you have used to help out with hypoglycemia.

Thanks again,

I would recommend taking the glucose tolerance test. Sometimes you need the "official" diagnosis for insurance reasons, this could make a difference as to whether your insurance will cover your dietician (and other things). You may not have that problem with your insurance, but I would check to be sure. The test is not fun, but at least you will know. I would recommend asking them to extend the test to 4 hours (if they don't already). Many times they only run the test for 3 hours which may not be enough time to pick up your blood sugar drop. Also, I would recommend taking food with you to the test. When it's over you are going to need to eat right away!
I will go home tonight and get the title to the books I liked and PM them to you tomorrow.

glycemic loads

I have been following a wonderful idea-there is a book written by Ray Strand, MD called Releasing Fat, but it is about insulin resistance and glycemic loads. It is well researched and he also has a web site, Releasing Fat, Healthy for Life.

It has changed my life,helped me to lose and keep off 55 pounds, and keep my labs in all areas within normal levels.

He claims to have many of his patients be able to reduce or get off meds completely and reverse the insulin resistance using the low glycemic load foods, exercise and nutritional supplements.

's to you all-I hope this isn't a result of the hysterectomy-recovering is enough without the additional stuff.

My doc gave me a book to read. It is called..."Hypoglycemia, a better approach." by Dr. Paavo Airola. it's a bit hard to follow in a sense but I'm doing my best.

Also, I had to quit taking Karate over a year ago due to my hypoglycemia. I managed to hang with it for longer than i thought. I would eat an hour or less before going and drink a protein drink or vitamin drink(advocare) and within 10 minutes of starting my class I would plummit. I tried everything I knew to do. It can be really frustrating at times. Good luck to you and I wish you the best! Sorry you are having to deal with all of this too. Maybe you will do better than I have in the past.
