    Hi! I have been living with reactive hypoglycemia for two years although I do not have diabetes which I know is quite rare. Anyway I just wanted to share that for the last six months and after a lot of hard work I have been symptom free. I wanted to share the blog site I put together documenting how I got to this stage plus there is a lot of other information I have gleaned during my journey. I’m sharing it here and hope it’s of some use to those living with this challenge. You can just enter reactivehypoglycemiaandme DOT com as this forum won’t let me post the link

    Hi and welcome to our forum.
    We have a blog forum if you have enough posts on the forum.
    Keep posting and asking questions, then you can post your blog!

    I do hope you have started to read our threads and if you have questions please do ask.

    I have had RH diagnosed for seven years now. And have been hypo free for most of them.
    Again welcome, and hopefully you can share your story with us!

    Keep safe

    I have just read your blog and I am impressed about your attitude to the condition.
    It is something that will be with us for a long time.
    If you read our threads on the RH forum, I know there is a lot, but we have a similar message about how to live with RH and using healthy dietary advice that works for us! Not what normal diet recommendations are!
    Exercise, you didn't mention walking! I walk as much as possible because strenuous exercise is out, and keeping on the move is about the best I can do!
    Intermittent fasting. Because of my experience with my fasting test, I found that fasting from 9pm to 3pm the next day is a great way to help with overeating and weight stability. I only eat twice a day.
    I could not eat as much as you said in your blog.
    I have been continually pushed by my specialist endocrinologist to eat complex carbs as you say as I need it for my biome. But I don't!
    Two sayings that I find annoying..
    1. But you're diabetic!
    2. You need carbs for glucose for your brain function!

    I am weird, and it is becoming less rare.
    And since I was diagnosed the number of diagnosed RH ers, who have found a ketogenic lifestyle is really good for them!

    Keep safe
