Hypoglycemia is a condition where the blood glucose levels drop too low in an individual, causing a variety of symptoms and risks to personal health. Hypoglycemia (HG) is most often triggered by dietary patterns and food choices, and can be greatly improved when following an HG-specific diet. It is important for those suffering from hypoglycemia to eat small meals at a constant, steady rate throughout the day--almost as important as avoiding certain foods. Foods to avoid if suffering from HG are best defined in four parts: simple carbohydrates, concentrated sugars, high fats and certain liquids.
