Hi Sydnee, it seems to me your FBS is fine, but for interpretation of the results of the GTT, the doctor or endo is the person to go to.  Your reading of 59 is low after 3 hours, in my opinion.  From what I've read, there are several types of hypoglycemia, all with different names!  I think the key is trying to keep blood sugar more level, not swinging too high or too low.  Trying to keep that goal might mean complete change of eating and lifestyle plan and maybe medication - but this is where an endo should be able to tell you what's what.  Sorry I can't help more.  What's a typical day's food for you?

Hi Lani,

I don't think they were bad readings either,but the problem was,it dropped below normal instead of returning to normal.That is why they diagnosed Reactive Hypoglycemia.RH is a precursor to Diabetes,I haven't been diagnosed with Diabetes (yet) and worried I will be.The GTT was 13 Years ago.I don't mean to sound negative,but I'm really not sure a complete change of eating and lifestyle plan would help Reactive Hypoglycemia.If it's gonna go low after eating instead of returning to a normal level,it will happen.I eat lots of leftovers even for Breakfast.I'd have to ponder a typical Day's Food before answering.
