What causes constant dizziness?
Practically every day starting appx 10 am I start feeling dizzyish for the rest of the day.
I was taking sleepig tablets but now for the last two weeks Ido not take any and sleep 6-7 hours.
Please provide some guidance,is this food related or any other hidden reasons?
neurological or inner ear problem
Hello and welcome to health care magic
I had gone through your question I really appreciate your concern
Looking at your age and medical history I would come up following possibilities
age related vestibular degeneration or labirynthitis (inner ear)
high blood pressure or orthostatic hypingotension
I would like to know does your head spins or surroundings?? Ketogenic diet may produce a mild dizziness but to be on safe side it's better to rule out other conditions
Please make a visit to neurologist for detailed clinical examination and confirmation of diagnosis
meanwhile don't stay alone take precautions while sitting or standing up
I hope you will find my response informative and helpful please feel free to ask for follow up questions
I will be happy to help you
wishing you good health and vitality

I do not have vertigo.
I hve dizzy spells mostly after brekfast and lasts for 35 hours as if I had a shot of whisky,my ballance is not bad.
my stool appears black, do not have somach aches.
Is this some form of diggestion issue??
Sorry, I just an error, I ment the dizzy effect lasts approx 3 to 5 hours not35.
Black stool could be due to gastrointestinal bleeding
Thank you so much for your reply and keeping so much faith on us
I am glad to know that your MRI scan and inner ear is all ok
dizziness after food at your age could be related to any of following conditions
post prandial hypotension
reactive hypoglycaemia due to a carbohydrate rich diet
gastritis due to stomach hyperacidity
black colour stool is a worrisome presentation it could be related to intestinal bleeding, please make a visit to gastroenterologist for upper GI endoscopy to see for an ulcer
hope this addresses your query please don't hesitate to ask for follow up if need be
Is it passible to have reactive hypoglycemia having very limited starchy diet,small amount of brown breasd or cracers?
I cosume no sugar,some berries, meat and vegies.
My weight is normal I go to gym nearly every day.
Your further comments will be appreciated.
thank you so much for your reply
peptic ulcer mostly manifest as on and off abdominal pain and acid reflux like heartburn which also fluctuate with food intake
Reactive hypoglycaemia can be corrected with following guidelines
Eat frequently every 2 hours
have complex carbohydrates like whole grains and cereals
drink and eat before and after you exercise
carry a snack wherever you go
Have plenty of fibers which helps to slow digestion of food
I hope this adresses your query, still you wish to prepare a diet chart for you, let us know I will be happy to help you
