  1. Hello everyone, My family and I will be traveling to Africa. We've traveled to other countries before, but never one where we'd have to take anti-malarial medicine. I called my local pharmacist to talk about my options. In addition to issues with gluten, dairy, soy, and egg, I take daily medication...
  2. Hmmm...I never thought about making my own peanut butter. That's a good idea! I think I have been slacking on fluids lately, so that's a great place to start, too. Thanks again, everyone. You guys are just awesome! Have a great day!
  3. The brand I eat is natural, creamy (no whole peanuts in the peanut butter), and low sodium. The ingredients are peanuts, sugar, palm oil, contains 2% OR less of: salt, molasses. The "good" news is the symptoms start within a minute of eating the peanut butter and usually subside within 30 minutes...
  4. LookingforAnswers15: Have you always avoided dairy, eggs, and soy? Have you always felt like you reacted to peanut butter? If reacting to PB is a new thing, did it start when you stopped eating dairy, eggs, and soy?
  5. Hello everyone, I haven't been on the forum in a while, but it's great to be back. I've been eating peanut butter every morning for the past few months to get the fat and protein needed to help with the issues I was having consuming carbs alone. This is kind of TMI, but I noticed I experience...
  6. Hi everyone, Just want to share an "Aha" moment. So after being diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia in addition to the other stuff, I decided to try some new breakfast ideas (had to give up my 15-year run of oatmeal) since incidents of low blood sugar (BS) seem to be at its worst in the morning...
  7. @‌ravenwoodglass: Thanks for suggesting the Creamy Buckwheat! The texture is a bit different from oatmeal, but definitely not in a bad way. In fact, it kind of reminds me of mashed potatoes, which I haven't eaten in a while since potatoes cause such a stir with my blood sugar. Now I can have the b...
  8. Hmmm...honestly, the thought never crossed my mind, but I see where it makes sense. Thanks for pointing that out. I will certainly give the Cream of Buckwheat a try. Hot cereal is really the only thing I prefer for breakfast. Do you have any firsthand knowledge about creating any GI or other problems...
  9. I certainly will. This morning, I added peanuts to my usual oatmeal and raisins...kind of a weird combination, but I can't remember the last time I had any protein with breakfast. Baby steps...
  10. All of my labs came back within normal range...which is a big load off. The endocrinologist confirmed it is reactive hypoglycemia. Doctor said I have to increase my protein and fat intake. I will likely consult with a RD to figure out the best way to do that since I have so many dietary restrictions...
  11. Thanks, Sammykins. You gave me a lot to think about. My first thought is if I lost consciousness due to reactive hypoglycemia rather than an epileptic seizure like my neurologist said, then I may not need to be on the anti-seizure medicine I'm on. Secondly, if it is reactive, between my gluten, casein...
  12. Hello learningtobreathe, I just want to let you know that you are not alone in this battle. I've only been gluten-free for a couple of months now. The thought of eating outside of my home is pretty frightening. I have found a couple of 100% gluten free places that I've enjoyed, but other than...
  13. So, I decided to check in with my doctor because my husband and I were talking and he reminded me the first time I was told my BG was low, it was in the 60s. It was higher this more recent time, but still considered low. My doctor consulted with an endocrinologist she works with a lot and they came...
