Diabetes is a disease where your body cannot control its blood sugar levels properly a€“ either because your body doesn’t make enough (or any) insulin, or because your cells have become resistant to insulin. Reactive hypoglycaemia (non-insulinoma pancreatogenous hypoglycemia syndrome) is a seemingly rare and potentially serious complication following gastric bypass. If you think you may have low blood sugar after eating, you should measure your blood sugar level using a glucometer available at any pharmacy. You will need to experiment with foods and figure out what YOUR triggers are, and what foods work BEST to bring you back from a sugar crash.
Here is what happens in experiment A, when 12 patients 2 years after gastric bypass suspected on Reactive hypoglycaemia, are given a high carbohydrate meal of 8 oz. Here is what happens when the same patients are given a low-carbohydrate meal was composed of decaffeinated black coffee or tea without sugar, 1 egg, a 1-oz. Note how the glucose level and the insulin level stay within normal levels and DO NOT SPIKE WIDELY as in experiment A.
These experiments show us why we should not treat reactive hypoglycaemia like we do in diabetics. In cases of severe hypoglycemia with loss of consciousness, immediate treatment with 3-4 glucose tablets (5 g each) or 3-4 tsp of honey should be given to patients who can swallow. From my experience, causes for cravings (other than hunger) can be  stress (chronic, or acute), fatigue, burnout, hormonal imbalances or can stem from a diet lacking in essential nutrients. Also, drinking water within the first few seconds of a craving popping up can actually dissipate it all together, and wash it away.
2. Check in and feel where the craving is from, is directly from your stomach (hunger based) or is it from your head and mind? You’ll be able to tell whether you are hungry or just stressed and using junk food to tame the stress. I suggest that for each cup of coffee or tea, drink the equivalent of water, so that you still gain the benefits of feeling awake and not dehydrating your body. 5. If you may actually be hungry, go for a protein bar or a protein shake if you’re not able to get your meal right away. This will stop you from compensating with a cookie, a muffin or a sugary drink while you wait.
6. If your sweet tooth just won’t go away after trying the above steps, you’re not screwed. 8. Your overall diet may be lacking in essential nutrients if you find yourself craving junk food or sugar in excess.
Your overall diet should consist of protein, iron, whole grains, healthy carbohydrates, fruit and veggies. Once you replace your junk food craving thoughts with more positive thoughts about your health or life goals that require good health, you’ll be able to gracefully walk away from any food that does not benefit you.
Eating well is not a ‘diet’ it is actually a lifestyle, and a healthy exterior appearance actually starts on the inside.

Keeping your blood sugar at a safe level means you’re less likely to experience other health problems. Do the test an hour before a meal, a few minutes after eating, an hour afterward, two hours after, etc. Your food log including the times you eat and any blood sugar highs or lows on that same log will be used to spot any patterns that might develop. Make sure you are following our dietary guidelines and instructions – eat protein first, then the complex carbohydrates and lastly the healthy fats. For example, diabetics are asked to eat candy to bring their blood sugar up quickly from an overdose of insulin (the cause of their hypoglycaemia). Of course, almost any type of increased stress can slow down your metabolism and cause your blood sugar levels to fluctuate at an abnormal level.1 In my experience, when this happens, I am naturally drawn to sugar to cure that ‘low’ of energy that I am feeling and then within an hour of consuming a sugary food or drink, I crash and go for even more. If you are craving sugar or salt excessively, this could be a hint to look into what you are eating, and which food groups  in your diet may need some re-balancing. Upon entering a store or coffee shop, I can always walk away from the pastry case and look for healthier options upon snapping my little band on my wrist. You can treat yourself – of course, but even then, you may eventually start treating yourself with healthier versions of your cheat meal or cheat snack. By coincidence, he stumbled upon an old friend (and doctor) who had lost a lot of weight and looked really great. Despite following it “to the letter”, he rapidly gained 15 pounds (7 kg) and needed to double his insulin doses, while feeling like he was starving! In this very honest interview he shares what he learned – and what he wish he had known earlier. Given the fact that 30% of Fijians have Diabetes, you have a 1 in 3 chance of having or developing diabetes.

Keep a food log and keep track of your blood glucose readings at all the various times before and after meals. Over time you’ll be able to spot trends and understand how your body is working a bit better.
The rule-of-thumb is a bit of simple carbohydrates to bring the crash up quickly, then a balance of protein and fat to keep the glucose up. What I mean in this article by ‘sugar’ is the refined white stuff that can have a negative impact on your immune system, and of course it turns into fat (the unhealthy kind).
The only issue I find myself facing at the moment is I lost 10 pounds (5 kg) my first week and a half, but for the last 4 day I put a pound back on. His doctors told him that the reason for his weight gain and joint pain and other things was that he was just getting older. So he started doing research on how to lose weight and become healthy, and soon stumbled upon the low-carb lifestyle.
This chart shows the different levels of blood glucose, what are safe levels and what are dangerous levels depending on when you last ate.
How my body tends to metabolize sugar, as many of you may also experience, is that it stores it into fat and does not actually get absorbed because my body does not recognize it as real nutritious food and has no clear use for it.
By junk food I mean anything that is overly processed or artificial, another way to define it is by the definition of ‘empty calories’, this can be soda, candy, chocolate bars, chips, and items that hold a scarily long shelf life.
Eat something real that contains nutrients and light salt, like whole wheat crackers or baked pita chips. The only thing to do was to take a lot of medications for the rest of his life, and accept his fate. By changing your diet, increasing your level of physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight, you can stay healthier, live longer and reduce your risk of Type 2 Diabetes. Diabetics who inject themselves with too much insulin, can develop reactive hypoglycaemia because insulin drops their blood glucose to very low levels. They can check your blood glucose (sugar) levels there and assess any symptoms you may have. Low blood glucose levels can occur in certain patients after gastric bypass (exact number not known) and this can produce several symptoms of varied severity. However, some people with Type 2 diabetes have symptoms so mild that they go unnoticed so it is always best to get your blood sugar levels tested by a medical professional.
