Hi. I am a progesterone user and wonder if all is connected. I have just found out that I have true hypoglycaemia without hyperinsulinemia. I can see now that I have had this most of my life and it has just gotten worse over the past few years. Have always been oestrogen dominant and due to oestrogen's affect on the thyroid, I am wondering if the hypoglycaemia is connected. My main question I need to ask though Wray is what can I do to manage the hypoglycaemia? My doctor has asked me to research, and she too is doing the same. There is apparently no treatment for true hypoglycaemia. I have a lot of pain in my lower legs which may be from constant adrenaline to overcome the low blood sugar (?), so my condition is at a rather desperate state. Hope you can help Wray. I value your comments so much - you are helping so many people. I trust your comments as you back everything up with peer-reviewed articles and it's that evidence that I need to pass on to my doctor.
