    Default Idiopathic Postprandial Syndrome--anyone know anything about it?

    I was diagnosed with it back when I was in Air Force basic training a few years ago, after which I was medically discharged. I've been trying to look up stuff about it and how it works, just out of curiosity, but I haven't found hardly anything. I read through the Wikipedia page, and the sources (some of them I couldn't view, though), and there's not much there at all.

    Hi

    No is the short answer, not come arcross it, but ultimately the symptoms will be exactly the same as hypoglycemia... which has a huge range of potential issues....

    I have something weird going on with insuline too, which has never been fully diagnosed/categorised... my symptoms are probably within the mood swings ends rather than the shakiness end of it.

    So if you do find anything interested it would be used.

    As a tip, if you can't find something useful, try the insulin resistant diet... which isn't a diety as such, more a way to eat

    The insulin-resistance diet: how to ... - Google Books

    It explains who to balance carb and protiens etc...

    It may be helpful to you because it helps you balance eatting out... you don't need to folow their "diet" just the principal of it... for example 1 spoon or carbs to 2 of protien etc... (that ratio is not actually right just for illustration).

    My point being if you manage to balance out what you are eatting at individual meal occation - it may help..... You probably need to keep a diary of if it works/get someone else to log you on your behaviours.

    Sorry it sounds a really difficult medical issue to live with.

    Since very low carb diets improve or cure virtually all conditions involving insulin-related weirdness, I assume a VLCD would at least marginally improve your symptoms...
