This should not happen, it is not normal. Report this to your dovctor, you wil need to do a special test which wil show both the sugar levels in body and alo the insulin levels in responsse to sugar levels. It is called some 'glucose tolrance tset' or something ike that. My sister had similar symptoms but she had them after eating rice meals, and the doctor said this for her. Now she is not taking rice items, she is better.

I just noticed a few weeks ago that when I drink regular OJ, I get heart palpitations, or racing of my heart, for a short period, like a 1/2 hour to an hour. I thought it may be the sugar, so I switched to Tropicana Lgt.,,with half the sugar of the regular. It stopped for a long period, now it s back! It also does this when I eat certain saltine crackers as well....the regular kind. Why is this? I have just turned 64 yrs. old, quite active and in pretty good shape; total chol is 164 at last reading..last year it was 253, then I started to modify my diet and it went down to 203. Dr. still wasn t satisfied, so I was put on Pravastatin, and he requests I still take the meds to keep it down; bp tends to elevate with the foods I eat (and trying to steer from), so I am on a 20mg. water pill; wt. is 157-160 lbs. 5 3 . I am now in the process of exercising to help lose some lbs. Could this be a factor? Sometimes it is quite scary to actually FEEL your heart beating so fast and so hard! As long as I steer away from these two foods, I am okay and I feel just fine!

Hell there. I m someone who enjoys a good couple of drinks every night but I ve since wanted to change that behaviour. So I m trying my best to come up with some alternatives. Right now I m drinking one part soda water, one part orange juice and then mixing in cranberry juice for the rest. My question is this...I know that it s better than drinking all that alcohol but is too much OJ bad for you?
