I had hypoglycaemia for years but, not the gastro.

While a BGL of 3.8 can make you feel awful, especially if sugars tend to run high a lot, it's not too low (hypoglycaemic episodes or "hypos" are 2.8 and under). I used to find that it was the sudden drop that would do me in rather than the level I actually sank to. With this condition the recommended route to follow tends to be multiple small meals/snacks throughout the day; keeping them balanced in protein, fat and carbs. This is the best way to keep sugars level.

Another common practice when you see an Endo, is to be referred to a dietician or nutritionist. They will help you build a lifestyle plan (diet, exercise, meds), tailored to your specific condition. It's a team environment, with everyone (including you) working together.

Try to relax a bit with the knowledge that you'll soon be having the right specialist addressing your concerns :-)

Good luck and let us know how the appointment goes.

So...saw Endo on Friday...

She is going to try and medication for my gastroparesis, and I have to get allo kinds of blood work done...anti insulin and anti something else...also she wants me to try and eat a meal that triggers my sugars to drop, if the nurse at my work can do this, then I would feel hypo, check glucose, if <3.5, then don't treat....get nurse to do the blood work and send to hospital...if she cannot, then the doc will admitt to daycare at hosiptal and try and get it there....she said that it seems to be a reactive hypoglycemia......which because of the gastroparesis, will be hard to treat...

Other then that ....I will start the meds for gastro on Monday...Doperin or something like that ,,,almost sounds like the

Anyway I'll keep ya posted...
