krw2586 Posted June 3, 2015 Share Posted June 3, 2015 Hello, friends! I started Whole 30 on June 1, so this is only day 3. I have advanced adrenal fatigue, which means low cortisol levels across the board. Because of that, it is really hard for me to keep my blood sugar levels up. Prior to this Whole 30, I was eating a lot of sugar because that's the only thing that helped. My low blood sugar episodes cause shaking, sweating, crying, panic, etc. I will cry for hours until the symptoms subside. But I've been gaining weight due to the slowed metabolism from the adrenal crash, so i wanted to stop relying on sugar. The problem now is that my blood sugar won't stay up. Whole 30 approved carbs and fruit don't seem to help. Today my blood sugar level was 48 (I have a glucose meter) even after a meal with protein, fat, and carbs. Does anyone have any advice? Or has anyone been in a similar situation? It feels really awful and I haven't been able to get off the couch. I know that supposedly your body will adjust to burning fat and protein, but cortisol regulates blood sugar, so I'm just afraid if your levels are too low that you will be in a state of constant low blood sugar. Thank you!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
