Establishment Myths About Hypoglycemia

Reactive hypoglycemia can actually imitate many other conditions, including:

• Heart attack

• Stroke

• Seizure

• Neurological conditions

It can also greatly worsen a number of medical conditions, especially neurological disorders and diseases. For example, it is almost impossible to control seizures or headaches in people who are having hypoglycemic episodes.

Unfortunately, these links are either not known or are not accepted by the majority of physicians, despite convincing scientific evidence.

One of the most widespread justifications for rejecting reactive hypoglycemia is based on the faith that physicians place in a single journal: the “New England Journal of Medicine.”

When this journal is mentioned in the media it is always referred to as “the most prestigious medical journal in the world.” And you can be sure that many physicians adhere to that mythology.

Despite revelations by past editors-in-chief about monetary and political influence exercised on this journal, it retains its high status. And the independent articles they publish are generally of high quality.

But some time in the 1980s, an article appeared the “New England Journal of Medicine” that implied that there was no such thing as reactive hypoglycemia — a claim that was not based on good science. In fact, it came from a severely flawed study, the conclusions of which were not consistent with most clinical experience.

Yet because of the journal’s powerful influence, most physicians began to deny the existence of reactive hypoglycemia. Soon, the very concept was discarded.

Fortunately, clearer minds are once again recognizing that this disorder does, indeed, exist.
