I have suffered from hypoglycemia for years. I have read that many others here do also.
I thought of this topic because I had to drink Glucola many years ago. The doctor checked my blood sugar an hour after. My blood sugar registered 80 and she marveled that that was low even for fasting! I felt sick for a week after that experience and promised myself that I would never drink that stuff again. That happened 18 years ago. If Only the doctor would have pressed to look into that.
Does anyone know if there is a problem absorbing sugar as well as other nutrients?
You shouldn't drink or eat anything that goes into your system so rapidly. You need a slow release and yes, a lot of people absorb sugar too fast who have gluten sensitivity/celiacs. Also, if they don't eat enough, too. We also use up our "carb points" over the years and can't handle many carbs. Sometimes, eating 5-6 hours apart works, especially with fruit, too.
