Tired? Moody? Depressed? You May Have Low Blood Sugar (Hypoglycemia):

Kudos to the Hypoglycemia Support Foundation

manage hypoglycemia

Do you often feel wiped out, weak, dizzy, forgetful, irritable or depressed?

Or, do you struggle with insomnia, headaches, obesity, anxiety, brain fog or heart palpitations?

And are you hounded by what I call Crazy Cravings™ and sudden, ravenous hunger?

Worse still, does your doctor insist, “It’s all in your head!”

Your doctor could be completely wrong!

Instead, you could be among millions, who have hypoglycemia or low blood sugar.

Hypolgycemia is an often-overlooked, debilitating medical condition, which means that your blood glucose drops too low for you to be able to go about your daily activities.

When your blood sugar plunges, you can get hit by dizziness, fatigue, headaches, mood swings, forgetfulness, brain fog, heart palpitations and dozens of other ailments.

Low blood sugar is the reverse of diabetes, which generally gets the most attention, but in my opinion, according to my extensive research, hypoglycemia is far more pervasive.

In fact, my research leads me to believe that about half of the people in the United States and millions more around the world have this condition — yes, it’s not a disease.

So what’s the cure for hypoglycemia?

Eat right! And exercise.

Yes, to manage your low blood sugar, you don’t need to take any medication.

You just need to cut out candies, cookies, cakes, breads, pasta, candies and other fast-acting carbohydrates, which I call carb crap.

Back in 1998, I discovered that my reactive hypoglycemia was to blame for my 44 ailments. (Yes, I had that many, as you can read about in my first book, Sugar Shock. See Chapter 13, which is about hypoglycemia.)

At the time, my savvy physician’s unusual prescription was unsettling.

“Quit sugar and processed carbohydrates,” my doctor ordered.

Letting go of my favorite sweet treats was the last thing I wanted to do! And it was no easy feat.

RobertaBut then, thankfully, I found the most amazing, kind, warm woman, Roberta Ruggiero,

Roberta — who has had her share of low blood sugar woes — is president of the non-profit Hypoglycemia Support Foundation, which she founded in 1980 to educate and support millions worldwide on how to prevent and manage their low blood sugar, came to my rescue.

This week, Roberta and her amazing organization are celebrating 34 years of serving desperate people worldwide.

In fact, last night, the Hypoglycemia Support Foundation had its fourth annual Hypoglycemia Take Center Stage Gala in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Alas, I was bummed out that I couldn’t attend this hugely successful affair. (I was at another amazing event in San Diego with Lisa Sasevich, The Queen of Sales Conversion.)

I cannot overstate how grateful I am to Roberta for helping me to kick sweets and quickie carbs and to learn about hypoglycemia.

Given that I first contacted Roberta in 1998 — well before the Internet was easy to access — I had to rely on books and Roberta for my hypo education.

Wow, did Roberta come through for me!

For instance, Roberta — whose phone number I tracked down — patiently explained to me that our bodies, and especially our brains, need glucose to survive.

During a number of conversations, Roberta explained that 80 million of us worldwide are plagued by many symptoms of reactive hypoglycemia, especially if we don’t watch our diets and eat sugars, many of which are hidden in processed foods. (I believe that her figure is too low.)

As I became healthier without sugar coursing through my system, I discovered that hypoglycemia has been called the “Great Imitator.”

That’s because low blood sugar’s strange, startling symptoms — some experts cite asm many as 125 of them — can make your doctor wrongly believe that you have bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, neurosis, mibgraines, Parkinson’s syndrome, chronic bronchial asthma, paroxysmal tachycardia (rapid heartbeat), rehematoid arthritis, cerebral arteriosclerosis (hardening of the brain’s arteries), menopause, mental retardation, alcoholism, hyperactive disorder, and even senility.

In short, when you have hypoglycemia — which I dub “hypo” — you and your doctor can get mighty confused.

As I was getting better, I then heard Roberta’s startling story. In fact, both she and many doctors over the years were completely baffled as to what was wrong with her. She was even subjected to grueling electroshock treatments when all she needed to do was quit sugar!

I invite you now to listen to my interview with Roberta Ruggiero on my Gab with the Gurus Show. The interview took place last year when while I was celebrating 15 years off sugar.

Anyhow, again, thanks to to the amazing Roberta Ruggiero, for helping me to successfully quit sugar and refined carbs back in 1998.

HSFIn fact, I’m only here today helping people worldwide to break free of their sugar addiction and Sugar Shock because of Roberta.

Again, I invite you to listen now to last year’s interview with Roberta on my Gab with the Gurus Show.
