I went gluten free about 3.5 weeks ago. Since that time I seem to being having some problems with low blood sugar. I have had these episodes in the past, but they seem worse and more frequent since removing gluten from my diet. If I don't eat frequently or first thing in the morning, I get very weak and feel like I could pass out. Has anyone experienced anything like this when removing gluten?

That's actually gotten *better* for me since cutting gluten out. What changes have you made, specifically? What are you eating, now? You may have accidentally cut out some nutrient you need.

I deal with it when i forget to eat. Then i eat something high in protien (peanut butter or cheese normally) and have to sit down for a while. My symptoms are the jitters really bad and lightheadness. It goes away once i eat something.
