Sorry I missed the discussion and had to go back and read from the beginning.

There are people that have hypoglycemia or non-diabetic hypoglycemia, although some use the term reactive hypoglycemia. My daughter has this and must eat regularly and carry nutritious snacks with her at all times.

OCDP, I do not want to add to your compulsive obsessive problems, but you may want to check out a blog I wrote about this. It is here. Exploring Diabetes Type 2: Non-diabetic Hypoglycemia

This should help and if you click on the colored text to take you to the links in the blog, that should answer many questions. Know that the majority of people with non-diabetic hypoglycemia do develop diabetes later in life because their pancreas has been overworked and can not function properly in later years.

You could be a person that just does need to eat regularly and not at hap-hazard times. You may need to carry nutritious snacks as well.

Good luck and keep a positive attitude.

OCDP - For what it is worth, I have a friend with reactive hypoglycemia and she has had it most of her life. She has told me she feels much better when she remembers to eat something every 2-3 hours. Depending on your food preferences you could eat something like cheese or lunch meat even between meals. Anxiety is sometimes hard to deal with.

Maybe if you try to think of it like - you wouldn't expect your automobile to run without fuel and your body needs fuel on a regular basis to perform at its best too. Try eating more regularly and see if that might help you.
