I have been officially diagnosed with hypoglycemia, but have suspected that I have had low blood sugar for many years. I am now embarking on a hypoglycemic diet at the advice of my physician.

Do any of you already follow a hypoglycemic diet because of hypoglycemia, or even diabetes? Do you have suggestions or tips other than the obvious ones of eating six small meals and avoiding sugar?

Also, is there anyone here who is hypoglycemic who has additionally been diagnosed with anxiety, depression, panic disorder, or bipolar disorder and wonder if (or have even proven that) these mood swings and other symptoms are connected to a blood sugar problem?
