More About This Book

Overview

Hypoglycemia literally means low blood sugar. It occurs when the level of blood sugar in the body is too low to adequately fuel the body. Reactive hypoglycemia is hypoglycemia that occurs in response to eating certain types of food. When there is not enough glucose in the blood for the body to function properly or when the descent of blood sugar occurs too quickly, multiple symptoms can occur. The symptoms can be mild, moderate, or severe. You might think if one is experiencing low blood sugar; the answer would be to just eat more sugar. But, for people with reactive hypoglycemia, that only makes symptoms worse.

Blood sugar conditions have been on the rise not only in the United States, but worldwide. Conditions such as Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, Impaired Glucose Tolerance, Syndrome X, and Reactive Hypoglycemia are becoming more prevalent.

This is the story of my life with reactive hypoglycemia. This book will take you on my journey of how I went from a person who ate any and everything, to someone who achieved better health by taking control over my diet.

If you suffer from this condition or know someone who does, this book will provide insight into how to manage this condition. While there is not "cure" for reactive hypoglycemia, it can be managed so that you live a normal life.

I hope this book is an inspiration and that it shows you that with discipline and proper food selection, you can live a normal and productive life with reactive hypoglycemia.

    Highly Recommend - Very Inspirational

    I thought this book was simply excellent. I especially liked how it was geared towards the everyday person versus some books that are written with heavy medical terms that the average reader wouldn't understand. The book was written as if two people were having a conversation, which makes it very relatable. If you are looking for a textbook style book, then this is not for you. And I did not see any grammar or spelling errors myself. I was too absorbed in the content of the book, which as someone who also suffers from this condition, gave me much needed inspiration. I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs hope in dealing with the day to day struggle of this condition. Superb!

    This Could Happen To You

    This is a great book and packs a lot of info on a little known subject. It delivers what the subtitle offers, a personal journey or voyeuristic look into the world of someone dealing with a condition that may seem foreign to the average person. I have found a number of articles regarding hypoglycemia on the NET, but these articles are very impersonal usually stating the taboos or do¿s and don¿ts of this condition. These articles are very antiseptic and do not relate an eyewitness account of how someone can suffer on a day to day basis until they find what seems to be a simple cure albeit a painful one in this day and age of the sweeter the better. I highly recommend this book to anyone who may be feeling like their battery has gone dead and can¿t figure out why. The author hits the nail on the proverbial head.

    Spelling and Grammar problems too much to read on

    I couldn't finish this thin book (more like a pamphlet). The grammar and spelling mistakes were too distracting.
