I'm hyPOglycemic. Have been since I was diagnosed after my second child was born almost 30yrs ago. I weighed 120-125lbs and had a low BP of 90/60. I had issues with anemia until menopause (haven't had a period in over a year now) and up until I was 38 or so (after three births, the last at 32), I'd always maintained my at 125-132. After that, a sedentary lifestyle and depression (divorce, bad relationships) boosted my weight up to where it is now...175-183...only 7-10lbs less that what I weighed before I gave birth to my first child over 31yrs ago.
It's not easy to find websites that are strictly for hypoglycemics. I understand the concern with diabetes (lost an ex-boyfriend two years ago to diabetic symptoms), but I'd like to share with other hypoglycemics. Any recommendations?
Because it's recommended that hypoglycemics eat at least 5-6 'small' meals each day to keep our blood sugar level, it's not easy to find tasty, healthy and satisfying 'snacks'. There are days when I just get too busy and forget to eat. Now I set my iPhone alarms to remind me to eat.
A cup of cinnamon tea and some crackers with thin slices of cheese is my current rage now. A hard boiled egg with a couple of dashes of hot sauce between my morning 'meal' and my afternoon 'meal' and an ice cream scoop of cottage cheese with a handful of fresh berries is my snack an hour before bed. Chopped chicken thighs wrapped in corn tortillas with corn salsa, broiled talapia with a pasta primavera (olive oil and chopped veggies)...a glass of wine with dinner.

Drink a least 5 glasses of water per day. When you take medication , the water will help flus out the excess sugar. Water will also keep your kidneys from working to hard. Eat plenty of fruit like apple and bannas.

I have found by eating whole fruits and vegetables and avoiding processed foods my BS has gotten spot on and my A1C has been around 5.5 the upside by making that Change I have also lost 36 pounds in the last 6 weeks even though I have not increased the exercise I have been doing and I have tried losing weight for the last 2 years with exercise and changed eating habits but until I went to mostly whole fruits and vegetables the weight would not come off
