Hi, Everyone. I've read through many of the threads, yet my brain is sleepy and I want to make sure I have this right so can I put things in place to make this work for me. I think I get low blood sugar. I'm not diabetic. Sometimes, I get cranky, spaced out, tired and sometimes cold, if I don't eat every few hours. I took a supplement a few years ago and one of it's side effects is it may cause low blood sugar. I became very chilled (cold to the bone, couldn't get warm) for the rest of the day, and extremely tired, I had to lay down and sleep. I tried it again another time and the same thing happened. Not sure if this is a low blood sugar thing or something else? It was a supplement to help mitochondria. Now, I'm ready to try D-Ribose and want to try to prevent any possible low blood sugar response. From reading through the posts, I gather what I need to do is eat some protein, fat and ?complex carbs before I take D-Ribose. Is this right? How much food do I need to eat? I hope not much. Also, what about glycemic levels of food, what is best for this? And if after eating and taking D-Ribose if I feel like I have low blood sugar, what do I eat then? Thank you in advance for any help. It's greatly appreciated.
