Re: Food for hypoglycemia & reflux
If you have hypogylcemia, it is probably best to avoid all sugar, but keep a fruit juice or candy bar or a few hard candies close by just in case of a sudden "low". I find that if I eat a high protein breakfast (egg whites, bacon, 1/2 a muffin and glass of skim milk - try to avoid cereals, too many carbs and sugars to start the day with) and then eat a small snack 2 hours or so later (p-butter crackers), then lunch (turkey sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes or cucumbers and a fruit), then eat another small snack 2 hours or so later (maybe an applesauce cup or yogurt), then a healthy dinner, (chicken and lots of any veggies you like and can handle, maybe a little bit of rice or potatoes), then another cup of skim milk for snack late in the evening. I'm not sure how this diet would work with your reflux, maybe substitute foods you can tolerate. Oh, and drink LOTS of water all day long. By eating small meals, a few times a day, it might help with the reflux and keep your blood sugars regulated. The skim milk is excellent to drink and having no fat shouldn't bother your reflux. I don't really care for milk, but it is a satisfy my hunger pangs. Good luck~
