Sleep walking, having low blood sugar levels. Suggested to take seizure medication. Do I have reactive hypoglycemia?

How can I find the right foods to eat to stablize my low blood sugar . I have started sleep walking 2 to 3 hours after I eat my evening meal. I have been crashing for the last 9 Years. The doctors I see only want to put me on seizure medicine and I won t take it. I know if I eat all day I am fine. Some days I can t eat all day, because I can t drive and don t have a way to the store. I will eat 3 main meals and 3 snacks however, it depends on what I eat if I crash or not. I am waiting for my medicare to start next year and I will be looking for a Endo & Nutristionist, Doctors. The doctors I see at the clinic only want to treat me for Seizures. Talking to other people who knows of my condition says I have Reactive Hypoglycemia , from my symptoms. I excersice and only drink water all day and wine with my dinner. I hope you can help me with the foods to eat day and night. Thank you in advance, Maxine

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms and agree with you that you require detailed evaluation.

Hypoglycemia needs to be ruled in view of your symptoms. This can be done by checking your blood sugar (with a glucometer) whenever you have these symptoms.

In addition, it may be useful to do a sleep study (polysomnography) to exclude a sleep disorder.

Seizure is less likely the problem in your case, as the duration of symptoms in seizures is usually a few minutes and not three hours.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
