Hi, just wondering if anyone can shed some light on RH i was diagnosed with t2 in dec 2008 put on metformin 3x a day for 9 months, was under alot off stress and changed my diet to comply, as a result i lost some 23kg in i think little under a year, kept having lots of hypo's and was finally given a OGTT some 2 and half year after dx t2 and there was no sign of diabetes and was told that i was ReactiveHypoglycemic, i struggle every day to keep my sugars from dropping quickly, by eating small meals that include complex carbs, protein, fiber, i try to eat very little sugar as ppossible, but does sugar that comes in bread still have an affect on my RH, i know i have to limit or cut the sugar completely out of my diet, also this is a big thing that really gets me, i get alot of joint pain that keeps moving from one part of my body to other parts on a weekly basis, does anyone know if that pain is related to my RH and the raising and lowering of blood sugar! Any input would be appreciated many tnx Andrew Sad

I was recently diagnosed with hypoglycemia and was having pain that would move all over my body too. My doctor told me that I was also low on Vitamin D and B12. After 3 days of taking B12 and a multivitamin, my pain has gone away for the most part. I have noticed that I will start to hurt if I wait too long to eat or haven't taken my pills.

How did you get your condition recognized by a doctor? When I talk about they don't seem to know anything. I took a glucose intolerance test and they said I was "normle". But I know I have hypoglycemia. The thing I have the most trouble with is sleeping I wake up after 4 hours really hungry and then I always have a 2 hour gap of being awake makeing me always feel unrefreshed. I have a really hard time solving this problem. It takes a huge toll on how I feel and lowers the quality
of my life.
