Question My hypoglycemia disappears when I'm sick

I've noticed that when I have a really bad cold or a stomach virus my hypoglycemia doesn't bother me. It returns when i start feeling better. Does anyone know why that happens? Is it normal? The doctors I see aren't interested in hearing about my hypoglycemia. They always brush it off so I can't get any answers from them.

Why does it bother you at all? It's very controllable with diet. Mine only bothers me if I don't eat regularly.

For some reason sickness increases blood glucose. My dad has type 2 diabetes, and his blood glucose raised to dangerous levels. His doctor said this happens, although it might warrant treatment to sort it out.

I have noticed this as well. I had a flu-like bug for 2 days recently and not once did I have any hypoglycemic episodes. Very strange

Reactive hypoglycemia normally occurs after eating high gi carbohydrates. Fasting hypo is different.

Re: My hypoglycemia disappears when I'm sick

It really is a matter of controlling your blood sugar and not eating foods high in sugar. However, I found that chromium yeast has really helped me stabilize my lows and highs into a pleasant level (no more sweaty, sleepy, hangry incidents), where I don't have any episodes during the day whatsoever, no matter my diet.
