REFLECTING ALLOWS YOU TO CLEAR YOUR HEAD

Just for the record, I do not promote the smoking of marijuana because it can cause lung cancer.  I have seen that disease up front.  But I do support some form of regulation and legalization.

MY HEALTH

For years the VA has repeatedly tested me for diabetes.  I do not have it.  I am 100% symptomatic for hypoglycemia. So not having diabetes has confused them.  Well with a clear mind, I got into my research page for the NIH, and found reactive hypoglycemia.  It means I have hypoglycemia but not diabetes.  When you get real deep into patient studies, it is often seen in people with hypothalamic dysfunction, which I have.  Left untreated it can lead to atrophy of the cerebellum. which I have.

It can come when I wake up because my blood sugar is too low.  It can come after a meal when my blood sugar can drop too low -  about 30-60 minutes later.  On some days it will knock me out for 4-6 hours.  

The solution - when I feel the drop coming on I eat or drink 15 grams of carbohydrates, and magically, I am energized .  I am doing about 8 small meals a day to keep the events from happening.  My energy level is up and my ability to exercise is up. 

Technically I am waiting on the MMTT test for a formal diagnosis.  Apparently there is a very cheap medication I can pop when I feel the drop.
