Our expert says:
If you continue to feel drowsy after meals to the extent that it is interfering with your work, then I would recommend that you have a medical checkup and ask the dr to test for insulin resistance or hypoglycaemic, and narcolepsy. If you do have a problem with blood insulin or glucose levels, then it is essential that you consult a registered dietitian. Visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will help you with a low-fat, low-GI diet. Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The Glycaemic Index' and read the articles on the GI. But first have the checkup so that we can obtain a diagnosis.
