Anorexic eating disorder, bp getting low. Pancreatic? What happens during the refeeding process?

I am coming off of a 7 year anorexic eating disorder . I am finally able to eat like I should but then my blood sugar started bottoming out so bad that I have to eat every hour. I am only eating veggies, meat, dairy, and nuts . My doctors have looked into everything and it seems to be a mystery. What happens during the refeeding process? Is there anything else I need to watch out for. Could this be pancreatitis?

Hi there ~

What we know about the refeeding process is that your metabolism is higher and everything else is normal. You may even lose weight for a few days but will gain weight gradually after that. You should have a healthy return to normalcy. I am sure you will do well. Take care and have a lovely day !

I hope this helped.
