You feel bad after eating certain foods or going too long without something to snack on? Maybe some headaches, irritability, shakiness, dizziness, cold hands and feet, even some anxiety at times? Well you must have hypoglycemia then.
No you don't.
Those are indeed some symptoms of true hypoglycemia, but what you're suffering from isn't very likely to be low blood sugar, it is something else, and it's most certainly real and not hypochondria like many doctors might lead you to believe.
You also don't need to be eating a high-protein, low-carb diet to prevent the symptoms you may get after eating lots of fast-absorbing carbs or when you've gone too long without food. In fact, eating a diet like that is likely to make the root cause worse over time, even if it gives you relief in the short-term.
In Hypoglycemia: What it Is, What it Isn't, and How to Fix the Root Problem, best-selling author Matt Stone discusses what's really going on.
The truth may surprise you, and you may have to stop using the H word to explain your symptoms.
Stone also lays out many effective solutions that have helped thousands worldwide to overcome the obnoxious and at times debilitating symptoms that tend to strike most often mid-morning and in the middle of the night as if a timer is set to it.
If you want a true, genuine way to resolve the tendency to "crash" after meals and/or in the middle of the night, no book in print will give you a better set of tools to go about doing just that - all for less than the price of a low-glycemic protein bar.

Enlightening and densely informative
I grew up in a household focused on diabetes. My mother told me I was hypoglycemic for as long as I have memories. I've spent most of my adult years thinking of my hypoglycemia as something I grew out of the more sever feelings that came with as a kid. Recently, I have had reason to try and figure out why I'm reacting and feeling in ways that I can't explain but remind me of my childhood hypoglycemia. This book was a great crash course into the topic of hypoglycemia. Dense with information and more than a few times causing me to say out loud while listening "that's me!". I could not believe that others found ice cream and potato chips helped - for me it's chocolate ice cream and salted peanuts. After listening to this book I want more info. I want to find a Dr that believes in hypoglycemia / adrenergic postprandial syndrome. I had no idea that some of the physical things I feel and the emotions I have might be influenced or because of hypoglycemia.
Additionally, when I was growing up she cautioned me that many Dr's would tell me hypoglycemia does not exist so I should be confident in my awareness and not look to my Dr's for advice. I implemented my mother's caution as a reason to rarely mention my hypoglycemia to my Dr's, while always making sure my Dr's knew of my family history of diabetes. After listening to this book I realize I've done myself a disservice by not talking to my Dr's about hypoglycemia. It's time for me to get busy.

What did you love best about Hypoglycemia?
I love the concept that if your body is having difficulty with a food that is more likely a problem with the body than with the food. Limiting certain foods from your diet is difficult and unless you have genetic trait or allergy the body should be able to adapt to handle the food you eat.
What did you like best about this story?
I learned that drinking tons of water is not recommended. I've always been cold even in the summer and I never would have correlated water drinking with that had I not read this and Matt's other books.
Which scene was your favorite?
Um, scene. The one with the paramedic and his girlfriend. My sister is epileptic and I'm a nurse I probably would have given my sis the same advice if this book didn't have me thinking a different way about health.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
In the past adrenergic syndrome was a problem for me. I do occasionally have cold hands a feet but before following Matt's advice I had them all the time.
Any additional comments?
Many people are skeptical about Matt's ideas. I wanted to ignore them to and did for a while but sometimes you just have to try some new ideas. If you are reading a book like this then your body is giving you trouble so maybe you are kidding yourself that your diet is perfect. I failed for four years find the health and vitality my diet was supposed to give me and I took leap of faith and it was the best thing I ever did.
