During my research on how insulin affects the endocrine system. I found this on a few medical sites, sorry, can't do the link thing! This describes a collection of clinical symptoms similar to medical Hypoglycaemia but without the demonstrably low blood glucose, which characterises said condition. Patients with the condition suffer from recurrent episodes of altered mood and cognitive efficiency, often accompanied by weakness and adrengic symptoms such as snarkiness. The episodes typically occur a few hours after a meal, rather than many hours after fasting. The principal treatment recommended are extra small meals or snacks and avoidance of excessive simple sugars and carbohydrates. The syndrome resembles Reactive Hypoglycaemia except that low glucose levels are not found at the time of symptoms. This syndrome is not to be ascribed or diagnosed as 'carb flu' when reducing carbohydrates in diets. Adrengenic postprandial syndrome. The glycaemic is normal, and the symptoms are caused through autonomic counterregulation. Often this syndrome is associated with emotional distress and anxiety of the patient. Just when I thought things couldn't get more complicated. The lesson for me, is, the more you look, the more you find! Bloody interesting though!
