No, really, it's true! I am hypoglycemic (low blood sugar-OH you thought I meant the other B.S. didn't you?)
Hypoglycemia is very hard to diagnose, until you do the actual GTT test, which I didn't do because I hate failing tests. I purchased a meter to check it out myself.
Anyway, the symptoms of low blood sugar mimic so many other 'ailments', that's why it's difficult to determine if that's really what it is. Some of them are; fatigue (had it), dizziness (yep), heart palpitations, nausea, blurred vision, inability to concentrate, lightheadedness, headache, irritability, fainting spells, depression, anxiety, confusion, night sweats, leg weakness, swollen feet, etc. etc. and I had it ALL.
Some may think that low B.S. is nothing major, but paradoxically, it can be an early sign of diabetes (high B.S.). Therefore it is something to keep a check on.
Some of the aids to maintaining low B.S. are brewers yeast, salt, vitamins B, C and E as well as zinc. One of the best is garlic. I say best because garlic has so many other benefits besides just this, so you can 'kill two birds with one stone'.
Of course there are many other remedies on the market, like giant sugar tablets-which surprisingly taste awful. But there are common sense and cheaper ways to handle this. Simple diet changes being the best. Removing alcohol, packaged refined foods, soda's, white flour and sweet fruits and juices are just some things to help balance the body.
Happy health to you!
