Hi my name is Barbara. I'm 29 years old and was recently diagnosed with reactive Hypoglycimia. In the past few years I have become disabled from chronic debilitating back pain/ nerve and leg pain. Because of the pain I can't really exercise or do much activity of any kind. Since the disability I have gained over 50 lbs which I'm sure has contributed to me getting Hypoglycimia as well as my mother, both grandmothers and grandfather all have diabetes and my moms started as Hypoglycimia when she was in high school and changed to type 2 diabetes in her 30s. My BG is like a roller coaster it spikes and then drops really low. This happens multiple times a day. I know a lot of my problem is my diet but I am a VERY picky eater and 90% of what I like is carbs. Potatoes, rice, bread, pasta, pizza is mostly what I like. I don't eat much meat, I only eat chicken, pork, and turkey and I mostly like then plain with no barbecue sauce or anything. I live with my boyfriend do I'm cooking for two and he doesn't eat healthy either and has also put on about 50 lbs or more in the last few years. So now that I'm done babbling I could use some helpful tips and support. Plus I only get $200 a month for food so it's hard to buy healthy food because it's so expensive!
