Here is a question some one recently emailed me about hypoglycemia. I’d like to share the question and my answer. The person’s name, of course, is omitted. Question: “Hello. I have just been diagnosed as hypoglycemic and am looking for a diet that REALLY works. Do you by chance have one in print you can share?”
When I first discovered the glycemic index a few years ago I thought I had finally found the missing piece of the hypoglycemia jigsaw. I knew from experience it wasn’t just as simple as cutting out sugar. For example, on many occasions I had eaten what was supposedly a “healthy” lunch with no sugar, only to get hypgolycemic symptoms during the afternoon.
