Dr. James D'Adamo suggests in his new book that excessive carbs and sugar can lead to Hypoglycemia, which is an underlying cause to a variety of serious health problems.

My reply to thread: James D´adamo. NEW book April 2010

Quoted from de_nogent
I recently started reading Dr. James D'Adamo's "Just an Ounce of Prevention..." and so far I'm really enjoying it. He explains how almost all diseases can be treated (and caused) through diet, in particular Hypoglycemia and how it can be an "...underlying cause to most degenerative diseases."
James D. has noticed Hypoglycemia in 85%-90% of his patients, including those suffering from "...obesity, diabetes, hormonal imbalances, infertility, ADD, alcoholism, coronary disease, and cancer."

I'm not yet half way through the book, but I'm looking forward to learning more from James D's 30+ years of research, and the successful use of the Blood Type Diet in his practice. FYI: Dr. Peter D'Adamo's father, Dr. James D'Adamo, is the original creator of the Blood Type Diet.

Happy reading!

Followers of BTD/GENO are well aware of this - as we are concerend that we may have the gene that will malfunction and not be able to handle stress from the beginning.. stressed for some of us means (reversed): desserts are intolerable form the very first foods we eat as young children..  and it goes down hill from there.. hypoglycemia is one of the first Gene expression of many to follow...


the way to fix our genes is to teach each other here what to do for the next generation..

Lola,

Do you think the diabetic book would be a good one for me to pick up and read through?  I do have hypoglycemia and if I eat carbs with little to no protein I am crashing an hour later.  I have just been following the Gatherer diet and eating low carbs.  Perhaps the diabetes book would be more suited for me?

I really thought as some of the weight came off the hypoglycemia would dwindle, but it hasn't it is still there if I don't follow a high protein low carb diet.

Thanks Goldie.  That was an interesting article.  I have had hypoglycemia for a long time, but as I get older it is getting worse.  There is quite a history on my dads side of the family with type 2 diabetes.  A couple of times after meals my blood sugar was up to 200.  I think it was a broken glucometer, but my husband has concerns about this.  He has asked me, several times, to get a glucose tolerance test done and I have put it off because of the time it takes to have it done.  I am starting to think I need to make the time now and go have it done.

My own issue with this dread issue is that I don't get it,, one is to eat certain things and then at other time other things.. if I hesitate to take a test is because the need for it is unclear, or the solution ids easy to understand.. a broken arm get it fixed, a hip needs replacement get it done.. appendix out OK, all seems easy and fixable but this darn thing Diab ll is not like anything I can seem to 'get' at the supermarket nor get rid of by just going to the doctor..

all I can do today .. is ordering SWAMI?? ordering Sups??  from Nap and then take on this what I perceive as confusion.. I have moaned and groaned about it and everyone here has supported me .. dearly.. but the only thing I KNOW to do is getting TESTED .. at least not sticking my head into the sand..  If I have to be bothered at least let me know why.. so

encourage your self to see your test.. its painless enough.. better to know.. gatherer I am certain about this being the deciding issue.. good luck.. I think the sooner you do it the sooner you can learn to fix it.. see the other posts here.. good luck..

Thanks, working on scheduling the appointment.  Called my doc and she is putting orders in for the tests.  Probably won't be able to get in for a week or two because my schedule is so hectic.

Very interesting. I think I am ok as far as hypoglycemic is concerned, but again, what is considered a hi glycemic diet? Maybe I am completely off, but is 50-60 grams of carbs per day --too much??

Marjorie,

That's a great question. Anyone have any advice for a healthy daily carb intake?

for most women 30-45 for breakfast,30-45 lunch, and 45-60 dinner,and if under 100 before bed (I check at 8, go to bed at 10 usually) have 15-30, needs to be 100-140 before going to sleep, if your diabetic. So about 120+ a bit more a day, if necessary. Can be mostly veggies!

Males 15 more than the high number I listed.  Most men burn carbs at a faster rate, and/or have more weight on them to begin with.

Adjustments are made if women are much heavier, or men or smaller then what is considered, normal weight.

How do you calculate all these things?  Is there a chart?  Are these measures in grams?

Narnia, Google glycemic food lists and you can see what they are.. but they are not simple grams.. they are different calculations.. it payds to study this for back ground info


with BTD the foods have have already been calculated according to SUPER beneficial and Beneficial and all others..  the understanding is that you learn what might be high as opposed to low simple sugars, as opposed to complex sugar conversions.. lets say it like this.. I can have some sugar, but not a whole lot at once.. and starches are higher in sugars then are fruits..  Its another learning system.. so Google all sorts of questions it will give you on appreciation of how much research is in BTD... where it is all laid out for healing our insides..

How do you calculate all these things?  Is there a chart?  Are these measures in grams?

read the labels,there are diabetic carbohydrate books, there is the American Diabetic Association, dieticians will help you get it all together as a diabetic, many insurance cover it/or diabetic classes,

These measures are in grams, and it is a guide to use, and to see how your individual body works with these measurements (activity charges them, ie-someone playing a football game would need more grams of carbohydrate before a game, then a person would need who is going for a walk)

I took classes, go to monthly take charge of diabetes support group and I am now an Ambassador for Diabetes, which means I can put on a program for a group, of people, and educate them and put them in the path of where to go, who to call for direction and help.

according to DrD HYPOglycemia is LOW blood sugar and HAS NOTHING to do with diabetes

Quoted Text

Quoted Text
on the same page He said.. HYPERglycemia is the precursor to diabetes.. as in glucose levels that are elevated but not yet diabetes..



Page 19 on diabetes book.. now that is the scoop... learning as we go..

BUT Geminisue..

1    Is HYPER what you and my doctors warning about ... by eating wrong foods (carbs) causing blood sugar going to low for the body's needs .. causing sweating, weakness, and passing out??

Does HYPER mean to much sugar/glucose in the blood? not having enough insuline to counteract it?

2    MY big confusion.. (can I go to LOW IF I Eat proteins and vegetables? .. or MUST I also eat some sweets like the prunes?  in moderation?

spaced out at every main meal ?  or can I eat 3 prunes IN Between and later in the evening?

3    and if I where to feel sweaty, weakness and passing out what would I have to do?    EAT food or sugar??

1. Hypo is what you described
   Hyper-means there isn't enough INSULIN being made by the pancreas to take care of the amount of carbohydrates, one is putting into there body

In people who are not diabetics, this is not usually a problem (I say not usually because people who compulsively eat a huge amount of carbs, which as they digest, turn into  glucose also,  go through the body, thus there is too much and thus causes the problems) when not burned up by enough activity)

2. I don't know how your body works, and you don't use a meter to check your glucose level, so I can't answer this with a for sure answer,but if I was doing what you say you are doing, I would eat 3 prunes IN Between and later in the evening, and hopefully that will cover your needs.

3. I would drink 1/2 cup of 100% juice, or 1/2 cup of real pop, or eat 7-9 lifesavers or hard candy, quickly,depending on what you have available, 1T black strap molasses, maple syrup, agave nectar, honey are other choices.  Pick one take it, when finished look at a clock and wait 15-20 minutes, if your not feeling any different, do one of these choices again, wait 15 minute, if you start to feel better, GOOD, Now have a couple of ounces of protein or a Tablespoon of oil. (reason being, in an hour your glucose will get higher and this will stop it from going too high)

If you think it's low, but not sure, do above, it is safer then not doing it.

Amazone1 is writing: she is having problems with getting on here.. so she emailed me..

So about hypoglycemia.which is not diabetes related.. ..P.D. expressis verbis mentioned it: it isn't at all related to diabetes!!! That's what I tested dito !!! and it's better to substitute with aminoacids instead of carbs...for sure and certain


Amazone... ARE YOU saying it is better to use amino acids for low blood sugar??? ?? what are aminos in food ??
