I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia. If I eat too much sugar my body creates too much insulin and drops my sugar toooo low ( had it at 40 once) and that was after I ate. I realize I do not have much in common with those who suffer from diabetes, but I don't know of any sites about hypoglycemia.

Actually, you have more in common with Diabetics than you might think. I have had many hypoglycemic episodes where my blood sugar was down to 46. If it weren't for my dog waking me up so that I could eat, I could have easily gone into coma.

When I was a teenager I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia. My doctor told me that I could develop diabetes later in life and he was right.

My bride "Jem" started out as a hypoglycemic person, her pancreas went into overdrive (to hear her tell it). Her pancreas burned out later and she became a person with diabetes, and a very brittle one at that. She passed from this life in July 2010 from one of her "medical challenges" which challenged her too much. Don't know exactly which one as she had several potentially life threatening "challenges"

My mother was hypoglycemic and had to eat from a diabetic meal plan. Deb dud welcome to the site, I feel that you can learn a lot here. Just keep poking around.
