    I have hypoglycemia and I don’t know how to control the symptoms when I’m asleep. It wakes me is with a sweaty body and heart palpitations. It’s an awful feeling. I’m sick of it. No one understands. I eat right before I go to bed but sometimes I wake up low blood sugar sweaty and heart racing. Everything calms down once I drink something sweet. Help

    to Olivia:

    It seems I have the same problem. Just recently I used to wake up with a such strong headaches that It would effect all may mornings. after few hours I used to get better and better. I had figured out, still not sure, but certain It is, that my heavy exercises were the reason for headaches, tiredness and mood swings. I used to put my heart rate to up to 120b/min (30b/10s – measured when exercising)and sweat like a pig. It may have caused that through sweat I used to loose important nutrition from my body. When seeing a doctor I was advised that I may be too stressed I tried reducing and changing exercise habits and it seems it worked.

    I was just told by my naturopath that she thinks I have hypoglycaemia. I have all the symptoms. Nausea, fatigue, shakey, anxiety, lightheaded, especially in the morning. It gets better as the day goes on. Have be diagnosed with anxiety and on Lexapro. The only relief for the nausea and anxiety is Zanax which I only take when symptoms are so bad. I’m now trying to change my diet and taking protein shakes before bed, at 3:00 am and when I wake. It’s been 4 days and still not feeling well. As the day goes on I feel better and by late afternoon feel great. Don’t understand this at all. Is there anyone that can help

      It may be a while before the benefits of a hypoglycaemic diet may take effects. Stick to your naturopath. Later ion you may have to consider possible allergies.

    It is not clear from your post, if you have adopted the hypoglycaemic diet.

    Hi
    my girlfriend suffers from depression and panic attacks. She also has problems with headaches, insomnia, and remembering things. I found a link to this website while looking for advice on how to help with her depression and i was wondering if you think that this diet might help.
    Thanks

      Hi Isaac, Yes this is the first step in treatment, adopting the hypoglycemic diet. It should reduce he symptoms. If no drugs has been used the result should show in about 2 weeks to 3 months. If it does not work there could be other problems like allergies. Also have a look at: Silent Diseases and Mood Disorders

      Please always discuss with your doctor.
