Food for hypoglycemia & reflux

Hi!

I was officially diagnosed as being hypoglycemic about a year ago, after having to go to the ER from a camp I was working at because of dehydration and low blood sugar symptoms. All year I've been having ups and downs with symptoms - some days I'm fine and others I'm miserable.

Camp is coming again soon and I'm worried about having another episode and a repeat of last year, mostly because I won't be eating what I normally eat and won't be on my usual routine. What are some foods that are good for hypoglycemia, in general? What ones should I especially eat if I'm getting low? I've done reading online but can't sort everything out.

I also have reflux, which can make it hard for me to eat without feeling nausseated and thus my blood sugar drops. So reflux friendly suggestions would also be great.

Thanks!

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~
