Hypoglicemia Diet – What To Eat When Hypoglycemic
Most people who are sensitive and suffer from gastric hyperacidity, multiple allergies and have a low energy level may suffer from hypoglycemia and should follow this diet. When a hypoglycemic person eats sweet foods , blood sugar levels will rise sharply, but will return to normal soon. During this phenomenon, even after the normalization of the situation, a number of unpleasant symptoms can affect the breathing process, circulation, digestion ,mental and emotional state of a person.
If the blood sugar rises after ingestion of sweet foods, the pancreas responds by releasing insulin (hormone that acts to regulate blood sugar levels).
In a hypoglycemic person, the pancreas produces too much insulin in response to consumption of sucrose or a combination of glucose and fructose. Excess insulin stimulates the rapid penetration of glucose into cells and the result will be a shortage of oxygen in cells and tissues deprived of minerals and energy, due to the fact that energy will instead issued after an anaerobic process and lactic acid starts to build up.
The main rules of the diet:
- Gluten-free grains – rice, millet, corn, buckwheat, sago and tapioca
- Protein-rich seeds – chickpeas, lentils, fenugreek, peas, beans, almonds
