I had RNY Gastric Bypass surgery 8 years ago. 6 years ago I developed reactive hypoglycemia, soon after I had my gallbladder removed and an emergency hernia repair. I do not know if the hypo is related to those or not, but I was told I may get it prior to having the RNY.
It seems to be getting worse as time goes by. Today I feel like crud & took my sugar. It was 85, so I ate lunch at 1:30 (Italian sub sandwich and sweet tea, only had 1/2 of each item.) 45 mins later at 2:15 my sugar was up to 298. My heart was racing harder than before, and I felt terribly confused. (I thought it was still low till I tested it.) I drank water, and at (30 mins later) 2:45 it had dropped to 197. Still racy feeling, but now add fatigue. I waited another 30 minutes, had more water - my mouth is SO dry - Now 3:15 and it dropped another 100 pts to 97. This is how it goes all the time. What am I doing wrong?

His office called 3 for me and they all said no we don't diagnose. WHAT DO I DO? I use that crummy Obamacare so I am kind of stuck here. Any advice?

They tend to focus on the fact that I don't have any work experience. I have asked for advice from my career coach and some friends and most of them say that I should...
Hi all! I'll start off by saying I have not had a relationship in 7 years. I online dated for about 4 or 5 years. Met many men, and only a handful lasted a month and then nothing. I gave up, focused on saving for a house for a few years. Had some "lookers" at work, but nothing ever came from those "lookers" I decided to try online dating again, and I forgot how awful it was. I...
