I Have Fibromyalgia/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but it Doesn't Have Me!
Eating for Reactive Hypoglycemia
Controlling Overlapping Symptoms of
(Low-Blood Sugar) & Fibromyalgia
with a Low-Carb Diet
What's in our shopping cart?
From the moment that I found out I was pregnant, I realized that, I most likely would have gestational diabetes due to my reactive hypoglycemia. So, I knew to continue to follow the Diet for Hypoglycemia by R. Paul St. Amand, MD, while pregnant and after my kids were born, they would learn to eat this way too. I wanted to give them the best possible chance, since type 2 diabetes runs in our family.
To learn more about hypoglycemia:
This is our most recent trip to Costco. All of the foods in our cart are very low on the glycemic index. My kids are allowed one Honest Kids per day drink box for their lunches at school and two tubes of either the Yogurt Simple or the YoKids yogurt by StonyField Farms—one for breakfast and one for lunch.
If they eat more sugar than this, they usually end up with a frontal headache or a migraine. They both are pretty aware of the body-food connection and how their bodies feel shaky or jittery after eating sugar. We have invented a new tradition in our family. During Halloween and the Fourth of July, they are allowed to save six pieces of candy (to enjoy) and then they turn the rest in for Legos or another small toy. This way, they get to experience being kids, and hopefully, not closet sugar eaters later in life.
