Hello! My sister has new boyfriend. They are together for six months now and he invited her to move to his apartment. She wants to live with him. He is really nice and our family gets used to him already. The problem is my sister found out he had reactive hypoglycemia. She hasn’t talked to him about it but she plans to. We have never heard about reactive hypoglycemia, what could it be? Is it kind of diabetes?

Hello! There is no need to worry. Reactive hypoglycemia is not associated with diabetes. Hypoglycemia is low blood sugar and reactive hypoglycemia is low blood sugar that usually occurs one to three hours after meals. The cause of most cases isn’t clear. Some researches say that reactive hypoglycemia is caused by hormones epinephrine or glucagons. Sometimes the cause may occur after stomach surgery or tumor. Symptoms are hunger, nervousness, sleepiness, confusion or anxiety. It usually doesn’t require treatment. High-sugar food should be avoided and it would be good to eat several small meals no more then three hours apart.
