I just wanted to find out if anyone has experience before an autoimmune diabetes diagnosis with reactive lows/hypoglycemia. More specifically with protein causing lows. I’ve had reactive lows for years with carbs, and it’s gotten bad enough in the past 2-3 years that I’ve had to make some changes to my diet. I’m on a moderately low carb diet now but lately I’ve been running low constantly. I can’t get my blood sugar to come out of the 50’s and 60’s and I’ve been dragging so badly. Then I realize my diet is low carb but way too high in protein. For the past two years I’ve had to phase out protein bars from my diet because they just send me into a low bg fog and oftentimes I’ll be low enough for long enough that I’m horribly sick for the duration of it (nausea, headache, dizzy, all the good stuff).
My primary concern up to now has been that I’m heading towards type 2 because I was diagnosed with pcos almost 20 years ago. But my insulin reactions seem to be messed up to not only carbs but to protein as well. So I wanted to hear from others if they had this experience before autoimmune diabetes diagnosis. Any thoughts welcome!
