I have suffered from very low blood sugar levels for many years. The one thing that usually helps is eating half an avocado pear. It might be worth a try.

All the best


Have you had surgery removing your oesophagus? Forgive me for asking, but many people on this site have had such surgery and have special circumstances that affect their sugar:insulin balance.


I’ve been 3,5yr post op total gastrectomy. Endocrinologyst advised and it works for me - eat carbs, fat and protein together in equal prop, this way you can hold sugar better. And of course, very small portions every 1.5h - 2h.

Hope, it will work for you too
