Reactive Hypoglycemia?

Anyone here have it? One of my friends does and is having a hard time managing it. What helps you? What hurts you? Do you take any supplements that help? Anything can help at this point!
Thanks in advance!

Once my doctor wrote "reactive hypoglycemia" on my chart, not knowing what else to cause my extreme reaction to relatively small increases or decrease in blood sugar. I was getting hyper when it rose and hypo when it fell, but ONLY when it did that rapidly. The "cure" was the same as the diabetic diet -- low glycemic food and eat smaller amounts more often, so as not to cause a big rise and subsequent drop. Our bodies can't handle a lot of sugars because our insulin production doesn't match the amount we eat - UNLESS we eat those smaller amounts.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
