Default Hypoglycemia, anyone?

I was curious if anyone has had issues with low blood sugar since losing their excess weight. Pre-op my blood sugars would sometimes run a little high (~115+/-). Now I find that from time to time I get a serious case of the jitters and once almost passed out. Coming from a family of diabetics, I know what to do (eat!!! preferably fruit or juice) but since this has never been an issue before, I was just curious what your experiences have been. I borrowed a glucose meter just to check my sugar next time it does this so I can see if my guess is right.

Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

Post gasterectomy (stomach surgery that removes part of the stomach) hypoglycemias are known to happen. It's the essence of the dumping syndrome, actually. Which means, you are experiencing dumping, even though you may not consciously be eating high carb foods. Try getting in protein first or a protein-carb combo and see what happens. And yes, it can start at a later stage post op.

I had a few bouts of this around the 6 month mark. I got dizzy and weak and felt like I was going to pass out. It lasted for a month and then I seemed to level out. Hope it clears up for you too.

Yes i experienced this alot and see a endoconologist for it. Bananas with peanut butter is a very good way to help it. Fruits not to high in sugars. I stay away from the juices because they can bring your sugar to high.

I have been having this also. I have to steer clear of certain foods and sometimes certain foods during certain times of the day. Just last week I found out I cannot eat cereal before work, cause by the time I get a 10 min break, my sugar has dropped from the high the cereal causes. I ended up in the break room lying on the couch sipping orange juice till the jitters were gone and I could drive home. Ice cream is a definite NO anytime, I get really messed up from it.

I was wondering about how many of you have cut out sugar all together and yet use alternatives.. ie.. steviaand or organic sweetners, or equal etc...
and too, what things do you find are the worst for using as substitutes in coffee and or the hardest things to give up when it comes to sweets? i dont have to much aof a problem at this ponit if I want to feel good then I stay clear of the things high in sugar and fat. But on occassion I will allow myself something low sugar and lowfat or fat free and sugar free.
I could useany help or suggestions for mixing up variety andwhat about your portion controls? Isit hard for any of you to maintain a certain measurement on certain foods? I mean I knwo our new pouches are only so big - but what is the average amounts people are eatingnow say 6 months down the line after surgery? I stay within 3/4 - 1 cup of food per meal and then 1/2 cup for snacks, between meals.
thanks
seapf/Peri

Peri,
That's a good question. You should start a new thread so everyone sees it.
