    it is an imbalance in one or the other!
    Because in my case, my first phase insulin response is poor, the glucose derived from carbs or sugars, increase my BG levels quickly, similar to a glucose dump. This is the trigger that insulin is required to bring the imbalance of too much glucose. The insulin is too much, an overshoot of insulin, My BG levels drop quickly because of the over production of insulin. It is an imbalance in first glucose, then insulin. And if you follow that it means, low insulin initially, then low glucose,. An episode of hypoglycaemia occurs.
    And yes, it is an over reaction, but by any other name, it is an intolerance to carbs!

    Good questions, keep asking, I'm trying not to confuse you.
