Reactive Hypoglycemia Treatment


Introduction to Reactive Hypoglycemia Treatment

Before we look into the reactive hypoglycemia treatment, it is important to understand what reactive hypoglycemia actually is. Postprandial hypoglycemia another name of this disease is a condition where a person tends to face reoccurring hypoglycemia episodes over the time of 4 hours. However, this medical problem have been confused with diabetes most of the times, however, there is no association with diabetes at all, it is more concerned with the release of carbohydrates into the body, especially after an intensively heavy carbohydrate meal. As we now know what reactive hypoglycemia is, we are going to look into the different ways of reactive hypoglycemia treatment.

Bringing variations in your dietary

This is considered as one of the best reactive hypoglycemia treatment and occurs when you eliminate those eatables from your dietary list that have the highest possibility of starch elements in them, and the foods, which contain sugar as well as preservatives of any sort, should be removed from your diet completely. Including these, you need to increase the quantity of fresh vegetables and fresh foods items, increase the daily intake of vitamins and exercising should be made a vital part of your routine through which you will notice reduction in the symptoms of this disease, hypoglycemia. You need to know that there are no such medicines or drugs that would affect or help fighting this disease directly although all the other complications faced that come along these diseases can be treated by using the available medications. Common complications that are encountered through hypoglycemia are heart diseases, diabetes and intense obesity, which is bodily fatness.

Reactive hypoglycemia treatment based on the time factor

When we talk time factor as being part of the reactive hypoglycemia treatment, we mean when to eat your meals. There are people who would skip out their meals and then fall prey to such problem, skipping food is never a good idea, and eating an entire days food in lunch or dinner is also never good, this can cause your carbohydrate and glucose levels to fall.  This is one of the most tricky part about reactive hypoglycemia treatment, because when you are changing the way the patient eats, it is important for  them to know about their times of when do they need food, to prevent level dropping instances.

Even though different people would have different hours as to when to eat on a general perspective, eating after every 2 hours is the best and the most suitable. Talking about eating food after every two hours, there is one thing that we need to keep in mind is that we eat the same quantity that we normally would do; however, just divide them into smaller packs. Where we used to eat three meals a day, it is good that we divide the food intake into small right snacks. Taking the example of a breakfast, if you consume cereal and toast in the morning you can always consume cereal at 8 am followed by toast at 10 am and so on.

An additional tip is that as part of the reactive hypoglycemia treatment doctors usually do not recommended people with hypoglycemia to exercise because it tends to decrease the blood sugar levels in the body. However, in reactive hypoglycemia treatment we are actually trying to treat it, thus, be a little careful, drink many juices before you exercise that is if you are an exercise addict.
