|I am hypoglycemic and I have a difficult time eating as frequently as I should without marijuana. I also have hypersensitivity, so my body can't handle a lot of foods and it's always painful to eat and digest (even raw organic foods). I have an extremely hard time keeping food down and managing nausea and stomach/intestine pain. Pills are too harsh on my stomach and the only thing that's worked for me is marijuana. I prefer vaporizing rather than smoking because my body is so sensitive, and the carcinogens in the smoke can make me feel even worse.
I have gotten very light headed and fainted a few times, but that was due to the mixture of low blood sugar from not eating (or not being able to keep food down) and lack of oxygen from too much THC in my system. Like everything with hypoglycemia, moderation is key.
Thank God I live in a medical marijuana friendly state; I had to get a doctor's recommendation to be able to grow my own. It took a few doctor's visits during the time I was illegally using the drug to prove to my doctor that it could be extremely beneficial. I also grow my own rather than buying from a dispensary because I can ensure it's not grown with pesticides or harmful fertilizers.
I realize not all hypoglycemics have the same set of problems that I do, but without marijuana I wouldn't be able to manage my disease. It helps me with appetite, nausea, pain, and it calms me down quckly if my blood sugar goes too low and I get hypo-crazy.
The main issue I've found is that I do crave sweets while under the influence, but I've had plenty of practice making healthy choices with snacks and foods (just like you all have I'm sure) and it's not hard for me to overcome the cravings.
