What is Reactive Hypoglycemia?
Reactive hypoglycemia is just one of the various forms of hypoglycemia in people who do not have diabetes. Reactive hypoglycemic is when your blood sugar falls too low shortly after eating. It is the consequence of excessive insulin release triggered by carbohydrate meals. These are recurrent episodes of highs and lows and they usually occur within 2 to 4 hours of eating and in more severe cases, the moment you place food in your mouth. Your body is reacting to the foods you eat, especially those that contain simple sugars and carbohydrates. Blood sugar below 70 mg/dL is considered low. Hypoglycemia Symptoms
