I have struggled with hypoglycemia for years but it feels like it’s honestly getting harder to control. I’m at the point where I test my blood sugar probably 4 to 6 times a day and I’m eating every few hours to try to keep up with it. My lowest recent reading was 53 and I usually hang out between 70 and 90 often even after eating. Has anyone struggled with this? How do you navigate it?

      So, my hypoglycemia is due to an underlying liver condition but my sugars fluctuate wildly if I don't treat them properly. The treatment I was given was specially to treat hypoglycemia due to GSD1a, but I feel like it could help anyone with hypoglycemia. It might sound gross or strange, but I drink 45 grams of raw Cornstarch (with water) every 4 hours. This regiment allows my sugars to maintain a healthy 90-100 range and not have any spikes or dips regardless of what I eat. Because the Cornstarch is a slow digesting carb, it carries sugars at a stable rate for longer times. I mean, sure, waking up at 4am to chug down a bit of drink is a bother, but it lets me rest easier knowing I'll wake up and not feel like trash when I have to wake up for the day. 😅

      Yes I’ve struggled with this. I have such a hard time with my blood sugar. I’m still struggling with this. The best thing I can do is eat in sort of a diabetic pattern so I never spike my blood sugar too much, but even if it’s high it rarely breaks 100. I feel you pain and I’m sorry.
