    You could be having hypoglycemia... Can you measure your blood sugar at home?

    why? b/c berberine lowers blood sugar? I was thinking that maybe I should back off the berberine a little..

    Yes, it might be too much. Additionally, a glucose meter isn't expensive ;)

    I get this same thing and its vastly differemt from hypoglycemia. My guess is once you start starving off and/or killing yeast and pathogen overload, they are craving sugar so you therefore feel it. Once you push through the hard part the cravings start to lessen up
