Hypoglycemia results when blood sugar drops, when a meal is
delayed, and often combined with a lack of protein. Some people experience
symptoms such as, shakiness, dizziness, nausea, irritability, trembling,
trouble concentrating and headaches or migraines. How do you feel when a meal
One client I worked with, had been suffering with
debilitating migraines for years and was taking a strong anti seizure
medication for it. Her migraines always occurred first thing in the morning
following a meal that had very little protein the previous evening. This caused
hypoglycemia and triggered her migraines.
Added to this she drank very little
water. For that reason her migraines would last for days, where as if she had
been drinking a lot of water she would’ve gotten rid of her migraine much faster.
In this instance, ensuring adequate
protein intake, eating more often, reducing
refined carbohydrates and sugars is key.
