I don't know if he grew out of it or not because he died a few years ago from something unrelated..
Hi dear, Sorry to hear that he died. Did you noticed those foods that causes the dropping of BGs up to that level and leads to unconsciousness. It may help to other people to avoid such kind of foods.

In particular chocolate of any kind - he wasn't a type 1 just someone who continually had to deal with low BGs - perhaps it was related to diabetes or he had a type of diabetes that wasn't or hasn't been identified.

It seemed that chocolate would trigger an over-production of insulin. He died in his 40s - related to alcohol consumption.

Hi dear, I was looking for the relationship between chocolate and diabetes on the NCBI, But there are also a dilemma condition. Some article suggest that cocoa is better and lowers the risk of diabetes whereas, some are just opposing it. Still, it is unclear the effect of chocolate in diabetes. In my point of view, we should avoid or consume in a limited way.

Most people do not consume chocolate as just cocoa so sweeteners and other ingredients (fruit, fillings) are added and that's where the challenges appear for people who have diabetes. In addition, many people (diabetic or not) are "over-sensitive" to certain foods; chocolate certainly can be among them. And all of us have learned that some foods really spike our BG even though the nutritional breakdown suggests they should not.

I do eat a little chocolate, but only a square or two of dark (80-90%) chocolate and only as a treat. I find even a little bit of really good chocolate is more satisfying than a whole bar of the cheap stuff and that small amount has not shown up in my BG testing.
