Doctor:to prevent it , u need to take smaller meals, and avoid high carb and high fat diet
User:or even everyday
Doctor:people who are fit, and eat healthy diet, do feel much better , than those who do not
Doctor:regular exercise helps to keep a person fit
User:but even after exercise if you get momentary low feeling
