Hypoglycemia Diet and Foods

There is a selection of methods used in treating hypoglycemia. Techniques range from specially formulated individual hypoglycemia diet plans to prescription drugs.

Watching what you eat when suffering from hypoglycemia is essential. However it is often very difficult to simply know which foods to eat and which to avoid.

This website will help you determine which hypoglycemic foods you should avoid and which to eat and why.

What foods should a Hypoglycemic avoid?

As mentioned, the symptoms that accompany hypoglycemia are caused by a sharp rise in blood sugar after eating sugary foods or drinks, or refined carbohydrates.

These foods (also known as high GI foods) are absorbed very quickly into your bloodstream, causing your pancreas to overact and produce large doses of insulin which then brings about headaches, tiredness, irritability, sensitivity to noise, insomnia and all the other symptoms you may have been experiencing.

Cut out Sugar!

The only way to ensure that your body does not react to sugar and with a large release of insulin is to eat foods that are absorbed and broken down slowly in the bloodstream.

Complex carbohydrates, proteins, and fats do not cause a dramatic and immediate rise in your blood sugar level but instead are broken down and absorbed into the bloodstream at a much slower rate. And as a Hypoglycemic this is what you should be eating

Foods for the Hypoglycemic to avoid
