I am in agreement with HypoCoach. I have a son that was diagnosed "adrenal hypoglycemic" when he was two days old with a blood Sugar
of "0" The doctors brought it back up quickly, which caused seizures, etc. He is almost 8 now and to make a very long story short, have had no severe episodes with him from the time he was 18 months until two weeks ago. When he was first diagnosed when he was born, they put him on cortef, because they said the pituitary wasn't producing a certain hormone. He took that until he was 5. They re-did blood tests last September on his hormone levels and everything was "normal." They said we would never see them again...until two weeks ago. He had fasted for 12 hours or so and blood Sugar
went to 35. Took him to E.R. and transferred him to the hospital of his endocrinologist. Now they diagnosed him with "ketonic hypoglemia" which they explained to me that his body doesn't store "energy" like most peoples. He is young with no fat and no muscle for storage. We have a glucagone shot, but they said that wouldn't help either (since they misdiagnosed him from beginning) because the glucagone secretes the insulin from the liver and at the point of low blood sugar, he has no storage in his liver either. We bought him a tube of "glucose gel" which is teh same as a tube of cake frosting and a 3 oz
bottle "glucose drink" for when it gets extremely low. It helps instantly. Anyways, the HypoCoach is right about all the sugars. They need protein, protein, protein...a lot of fiber also. Try to avoid processed foods.
Let me share an exerpt from a book I have on "natural health remedies." "There seems to be an epidemic of low blood surgar in America these days because of our poor diets filled with sugar, alcohol, soft drinks, simple carboydrates, caffeine, chocolate, and coffee. Hypoglycemia may take a while to diagnose because the symptoms resemble those of other diseases, such as allergies, chronic fatigue syndorme, asthma, neurological problems, weight problems, thyroid and pituitary disorders, kidney disease and adrenal exhaustion. Often dietary changes alone can resolve this condition. Eat a high-fiber diet, with some form of protein at each meal. Eat beans, brown rice, vegetables, low-fat cottage cheese, tofu, yogurt, nuts, seeds, avacados, almond butter and soy or rice cheese. Avoid sweet fruit juices. Dilute them 50/50 with water. Eliminate sugar, soft drinks, alcohol and refined and processed foods." There are supplements you can take also, just let me know if you need them and I can list them for you.
I know how hard this is as a mother to watch your child go through all of this. I am also praying that this helps for us also. Let me know how your daughter is doing.
