I need your help--what should I do for meal prep:? Hypoglycemia
Alright so I know I should probably go see a dietitian, but I really want to have the right kind of routine for myself when it comes to eating...I'm hypoglycemic so in the morning, I have a really hard time eating certain foods..It's hard to explain and I want to be prepared, I want to feel good when I'm out the door and going to work.

So, here's the problem.

I can not not just eat cereal. I used to be able to do that and now I need more "sustenance".

My friend, he takes a banana and a granola bar to work for breakfast, eats that and he is totally fine. I am not.
That is way too little for...
10 or 15 min after eating one banana I crash.

So here's something: I was at work and in the morning I had this

Oatmeal/peanutbutter/honey/banana:

But about 4o minutes later, my head started feeling weak again and my body.. weak.

So I ate these pepperoni sticks which, again 30 min later.. crash... repeat with another stick.

For lunch I had a can of tuna< That by itself made my low blood sugar worse.

then I crashed again.. not enough, felt sick. Had an apple, and my stomach didn't really like it that much but then I felt a little better after that...

I lasted another 2 or 3 hours until I got home and ate cheese and grapes.


So I'm just asking for some help in what to do because I'm pretty sure I don't have diabetes but I have hypoglycemia. That's low blood sugar...
When I wake up it hits me like.. ughhh,... I need something, but what?

Salmon helps.A lot usually, but its expensive. My stomach agrees with me and my head feels sharp with it. I feel like I need like a whole meal plan or something because whatever I'm doing is not working.

I've done smoothies before too but I crash after those too so what can I do?

What do you guys do?

Re: I need your help--what should I do for meal prep:? Hypoglycemia
I had low blood sugar for years. Learned that on a cellular level if potassium is high, sodium and sugar are low. For me and many others, the cure was sea salt. Himalayan pink salt was the best because of it's broad spectrum of electrolytes and minerals.

I start the day with salt water and keep a quart of it by the bed to drink when I wake up at night.

After a while my sugars balanced out on the cellular level and I didn't need salt every day - just occasionally.

If you are like me, your blood pressure always tends to be on the low end as well

As far as food goes, before the salt, I found that a combination of protein and slow acting sugar was best. So, like, wholewheat toast and cheese. Raw milk and a handful of nuts (milk has sugars in it). A fried egg on toast in the morning with a glass of milk. Coffee would upset the balance unless I had the salt water first.

Not having anything with processed sugar after 4 PM every day was also important.

Meat was good for the slow burn, but I need a carb like wheat toast or milk to keep the meat from dropping my sugar.

But, like I said, the salt water took care of the underlying problem.

1 teaspoon of pink salt per quart of water, 1 to 2 times daily.

*** MAKE SURE YOU SEE AN ENDOCRINOLOGIST - BUT MAYBE THIS HELPS***

OP, I began having hypoglycemia after being a Div I athlete ... it almost killed me. At 6-7, I got up to 600lbs on "their B.S. Hypo diet."

I went from 220 lbs. to 598lbs. in 2 years, eating their whole grain, bananas, crap like that every 3 hours - while still passing out/seizures ...I ended up hospitalized with pulse ox as low as 71 at times at night. (C-Pap then)

You MUST get a 5 Hour glucose tolerance test, plus 24 hour cortisol test and hemoglobin A1-C and see an endocrinologist. SEE AN ENDO!


For me, it was hyper insulin secretion combined with cortisol levels that were super high, and natural testosterone levels that were 3x elevated.

What saved me?

On my own I went Atkins, but low carb veggies, with high fat, lots of fresh spinach, asparagus, eggs, cheeses, anything that does NOT trigger insulin.

I'm now at 270lbs. - but I also used Phosphatidylserine (Neuro PS) and to lower cortisol and Vitamin C, B-1 and other things to lower insulin. Also B-100 tablets

*** Every case is different though, you must figure out WHAT is causing the HYPO ...

For me, it was a complete endocrine meltdown from weekly injections of cortisone so I could play B-Ball .. I got almost WEEKLY injections of cortisone (and god knows what else) - from age 14-18 in the 1980s. In addition I was on Accutane, a horrific drug, in the 80s.

GO GET A COMPLETE ENDOCRINE WORKUP - DO NOT GO THROUGH WHAT I DID - I WENT AS FAR AS A FEW NDE'S TOO.

it seems that the answer is protein.

I remember I Had lox. and having lox in the morning was absolutely perfect.

How do I get an endocrine work up?

I guess schedule a physical huh? I hate the doctors but sometimes figuring out what's going on is important and while I would naturally like to do it the natural way, I'd rather at least a blood test show me what's going on.
