Topic: RE: Reactive Hypoglycemia, Seizure
I wanted to share something scary that happened to me this weekend while we were camping. Apparently my blood sugar dropped very rapidly, and I had a grand mal seizure (now called Tonic-Clonic). Luckily, my friend who was with me is an MD, and she handled it well, but it was terrifying. I was taken about 30 minutes away by ambulance, and upon arriving at the hospital after being given a full bag of glucose, my blood sugar was still just 60. I didn't have any symptoms that I was aware of until just before it started.
I have had several episodes of RH since the surgery, though nothing like this before, obviously. I have an appointment with a neurologist next week. Anyway, I know that there has been significant talk about RH with RNY, but I have seen less about it with VSG. I'll update if I find out any useful information.
