To relieve reactive hypoglycemia,some health professionals recommend taking the following steps:
Your doctor can refer you to a registered dietitian for personalized meal planning advice Although some health professionals recommend a diet high in protein and low in carbohydrates,studies have not proven the effectiveness of this kind of diet for reactive hypoglycemia.If the diet does not provide a relief in symptoms,there are some medications which can be useful in reactive hypoglycemia,and that should be administrated only by a physician.
My son has reactive hypogycemia but does not eat regularly like he should and often does not feel well. He suffers from many of thesymptoms associated with hypoglycemia such as mood swings and depression which I see as asoociated with his bad eating habits. However, a therapist recently told him he has mikd bi-polar disorder - cyclothymia. I read up on this, and he does NOT display the characteristics of someone with this condition. Has anyone else had problems with this type of mis-diagnosis?
Did your Son have a GTT,Glucose Tolerance Test to confirm a Diagnoses of Reactive Hypoglycemia?If he has been diagnosed I'd say not eating regularly would make him feel unwell..he is more than likely experiencing Hypoglycemia.I really don't have mood swings,however feel Depressed,sad or down,but I have a lot of Stressy crap going on in my personal life ATM (at the moment)..how old is your Son?Have you or your Son sought a second opinion for the Cyclothymia?
