Reactive hypoglycemia refers to low blood sugar after a meal, says Mayo Clinic. The condition has a variety of causes, from drinking alcohol to metabolic disorders.
People with reactive hypoglycemia may have symptoms including weakness, shakiness and lightheadedness.
To manage reactive hypoglycemia, Mayo Clinic suggests:
- Eating a balanced diet with lean meat, fiber, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
- Avoiding sugary foods and processed simple carbohydrates.
- Eating food if drinking alcohol.
- Eating several small meals and snacks throughout the day.
