please direct me to stan's special diets for non-diabetic hypoglycemic because I have been experiencing the symptoms for 2 months. I am about to accept a job offer and worried that I would not be able to pass the first 3-month probation due to the disease. Thanks

thanks, tygrbabi! It means that eating foods rich with sugar would trigger the pancreas to secrete too much insulin causing a decrease in blood sugar. What happens if I am driving on freeway and my body begins to act up? Should I calm it down by eating a candy or drinking some juices?
Thanks, stan! I am going to follow your special diets by cutting back on things that contain sugar. My symptoms have become worse and worse because I thought my body needed sugar. Two weeks ago I was able to keep my stomach empty for 12 hours for a fasting blood test. Now I have to get up 2 times at night around 1 am and again around 3 am just to eat something or my body would tremble and get colder and colder. I've become so weak. My blood test turned out all right, everything is normal, no diabetes. But I am going to have my pancreas scanned to see if it has any tumor. I am going to see my endocrinologist thursday to see if i've suffered hypoglycemia. I haven't taken a glucose tolerance test. I think I will when I see him. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
Since you haven't started the diet yet, it would be beneficial to take the test, also good job getting the scan, need to make sure you don't have any malign, but annoying, tumors on the pancreas just in case. Still, it's not likely, because as far as i've been told by my doctor, if you have that it will be a constant feeling whether you're eating or not with little let-up. You'd be able to chow on candy bars too. Also keep in mind that you don't have to follow every single suggestion I give, if you think you can take grains, by all means try it. The test will show what kind of a curve you have.
I am able to eat anything. I think I need to wait until I see my doctor tomorrow. The symptoms reoccur faster when I lied down. If I eat something (not necessarily sugar) it would go away. I've lost my good night sleep for 2 weeks. I tried not to eat anything sweet before bedtime last night and I was able to sleep (not deep sleep) for 4 hours before the symptoms came back.
The results of my glucose tests at home show that I don't have hypoglycemia. But I still need to eat every 3 hours (i can eat anything). I felt extreme fatigue after exercises. I had to eat about an hour before going to bed but after 2 or 3 hours my body began to act up. I felt like my chest was squeezed and my body was shaking and getting colder. I had to press my hand on my chest to calm down the symptoms. I tried not to eat anything again and kept pressing my hands on my chest until I get out of bed around 5 am. I don't have any heart problem. This happens almost everyday. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
