Blogger Status: Health Update

First of all, I´d like to send a big thanks to Mariuca and Monica, two great bloggers I meet trough Entrecard, for showing your concern about my health.
I have Hipoglicemia since teen. This metabolic problem has no specific treatment like Diabetes has. All I can do is carry a packet of sugar with me and eat very frequently.
Every time I go to a new doctor (which was the case today), they make me do this horrible blood tests and I have to spend the whole morning without eating. Normally, when I don´t eat for a long time, my blood pressure and sugar levels drop and I feel really sick. I always feel sick when I do the glicemia tests, in fact, I have passed out a few times.
Well, I have good news: I went to the doctor, a lady, and she didn´t ask for any exams. It was such a relief to hear that this time there won´t be any needles!
I´m not affraid of needles or have any blood phobia, I just hate all the process. I think a new glicemia test should be invented, without jejum all morning and that awful sweet milky thing they give us to drink.
Ok, so now I´m off to update my other blogs and get some sleep.
A good Friday!

I have hypoglycaemia too. I have found out that having sugar is the worst thing for you, after having done it for 18y years. I now eat no sugary foods at all. I eat lots of complex carbs such as brown rice and wholemeal pasta and bread and eat every 2-3 hours. I have found that I now hardly ever feel unwell and if I do a banana or slice of toast is the best thing to help me to feel better.

Hi Rachel!
Oh, is that so. You need to be extra careful when dieting.
I agree, I also have bread or fruits when I´m in crisis. If I´m at home it´s easier, but when I go out I take something in my bag.
Bananas have natural fruit sweet, it´s a good tip.
My biggest problem is I really forget to eat every 2/3 hours.
A good week!
