hi!!! i'm new to hypoglycemia (i've been diagnosed with reactive hypo for about 2 months) and i used to be super active...i swam competitively, figure skated competitively, and was training all year. i get a major drop after training even if i eat before hand.
...that being said, i also have asthma, and am in the early stages of hashimoto's, and am on levothyroxine.
the cause of the hypoglycemia was due to having not enough of glucagon, and absence of thyroid hormones, along with sickness when i was younger.
my blood sugar also doesn't rise after i eat, (my endocrinologist doesn't know why either lol) it ranges from 82 - 87 all day, unless i get low, of course. :)
my dietician put me on the hypo diet similar to "south beach"
so...with that information,
*what do you think would be the best food for after, or in the middle of working out to prevent hypos?
*other than eating every 2-3 hours, how can i minimize blood sugar drops in school, and at work? (like, what works best for you)
*how do you explain hypoglycemia, (especially reactive) to friends and coworkers?
*if you are athletic, how do you handle long practices and training sessions with hypo?
anything else you can think of about hypo. even if you're diabetic, i would be extremely grateful for!!:D
thank you for your time, kbye!:)
