Our expert says:
The type of diet that patients with hypoglycaemia should use at all times is a low-GI diet consisting of 6 small meals a day, which I presume your dietitians have worked out for you? For the added requirement of weight loss, the low-GI, 6 meals a day diet must then also be low in fat (this reduces the energy content and induces weightloss). Contact the Glycemic Index Foundation at: www.gifoundation.co.za and ask them to refer you to a dietitian who will develop a low-GI, low-fat diet for you that keeps your hypoglycaemia in check
