Reactive Hypoglycemia is also a symptom of Toxic Hunger

I forgot to include this part in my OP that talks about the Toxic Hunger symptom of reactive hypoglycemia...

Eat to Live (pg 166)

"The word hypoglycemia means "low glucose in the bloodstream." It gives people the impression that the low glucose level itself is the cause of the problem.

Certain uncommon medical conditions (such as insulin-secreting tumors), excessive diabetic medication, and other rare illnesses can cause hypoglycemia and even hypoglycemic coma, but I am referring to those people with reactive hypoglycemia. They feel ill when they delay eating, but they do not have a serious medical condition, nor do their blood sugars drop dangerously low. Most people carrying this diagnosis do not have fasting glucose below 50; when their blood is drawn when they delay eating and feel extremely ill, the blood Sugar is usually not low enough to account for their feeling so ill. There seems to be no correlation between the severity of the symptoms and their low glucose levels, but they feel uncomfortable if they try to stop treating themselves with high-protein diets.

It is a massive over simplification to think that a lower level of glucose in the blood is the sole cause of this problem. I find that the people with the most troublesome symptoms do not even have low glucose levels."
