Hi, I was wondering if anyone here has experience using Glucomannan for hypoglycemia? I've been having really debilitating symptoms for about 5 months now. Even worse is that most of my staple supplements (Magnesium Threonate, Vitamin D, B12, caffeine, Melatonin, most herbs etc.) trigger a reaction, so I've been taking some and trying to eat around the discomfort with mixed success. Basically, it's a choice between being non-functional vs. semi-functional and sick throughout the day. I tried most of the recommended stuff -- Biotin, Cinnamon, ALA, Chromium etc. -- they all seemed to make the symptoms worse, aside from Chromium, though it either seems to make me sleepy or put me in an unpleasant headspace .. admittedly, I didn't give it a decent trial, but have ordered the GTF chromium because it's supposedly less sedating. I have seen an Endo. She's ordered two sets of tests -- one testing glucose, insulin, c-peptide. For that test, she's asked me to try and induce the symptoms and make myself feel as bad as possible. The second is a fasting test measuring Cortisol, ACTH, TSH, ft4, ft3, glucose, insulin, c-peptide, VEC (?), LFT. Unfortunately, I keep putting off the tests because I end up feeling so miserable at night that I will take something sedating (Bacopa, antihistamine etc.) to knock myself out and I worry it will skew the results the next day. But I am determined to try get them done next week, even if it means not sleeping. Anyway, I was so desperate and was googling tonight when I came across several people mentioning Glucommanan for hypoglycemia. I googled further and there seem to be several reports where people have said it cured them when nothing else would help. Has anyone tried it before? It sounds too good to be true, but I rushed to place an order. I also added Inulin FOS and Corosolic Acid, which someone mentioned they took with the Glucommanan. I may post this in the Resistant Starch thread, but I also wanted to ask about Hi-Maize Corn Starch. Before these episodes, I was taking Potato Starch with tremendous results for my mood and anxiety, but had to stop because it does generally drop my blood sugar. There's a study where regular corn starch was given to children with hypoglycemia and it seemed to diminish nighttime episodes/allow them to sleep throughout the night. I was wondering if the Hi-Maize starch would a) confer similar benefits to the Potato Starch, possibly without dropping blood sugar, and b) whether it might also improve hypoglycemia, or does the fact that it's resistant starch mean it isn't digested in the same way as regular corn starch?
