 5.2 WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN I START TO FEEL HYPO?

Eat. No, eat *healthily* ! And don’t eat sugar! A quick sugar boost probably gets you on road again soon, but will force your motor to stall a few hours afterwards (do not try this at home). The best thing to eat is a mix of slow carbohydrates and proteins. Nuts are ok, so is a whole grain sandwich with cheese and high-fiber vegetables. Milk and cottage cheese work well for a lot of people too.

“When your body tells you to slow down, you better listen. Sometimes you may be so exhausted, confused, indecisive or weak that you aren’t even able to look after yourself anymore and buy or prepare food, or too tired to even to eat or chew it. If there’s no-one around to force you to eat, try to get some food quickly or else sleep! You’ll probably notice that when you awake a few hours later, the hypo is gone and it’s time to start looking after yourself again.”

This entry is devoted to some qoutes and explainations so my friends and I can all be on the same page of understanding maybe!

 5.1 IF I FEEL HYPO, SHOULDN’T I EAT SUGAR TO COMPENSATE?

No! Hypoglycemia can NOT be treated by eating sugar! Eating sugar only tells our body to produce more insulin, of which we produce too much already. Eating sugar will probably give you a short blood sugar high, but you will certainly end up with all the nasty symptoms for the next couple of hours, even days sometimes.”

I do treat my hypos like a Diabetic does but I eat protein and fat as soon as I can as I plument dangerously fast and HAVE to do something before I pass out/di!

It just felt important to add some facts to this page.
