Whenever I diet, I get symptoms of low blood sugar?

A: well, when you diet, what do you eat? and how much? also, why not keep healthy snacks handy? i almost always have a luna bar, balance bar, or thinkthin bar in my purse and backpack. compared to a bag of chips or cookies, they''re not such an unhealthy snack to hold me over when i still have a couple hours before i''ll be able to have a real meal. i was also recently reading an article, i wish i could remember what magazine, but it talked about how one of the things not to do it beat yourself up for having something not diet approved. and they were talking about how it''s ok if you slip and have a cookie or something in the afternoon. just make up for it later by having a lighter dinner, or skipping a glass of wine...

If you pass out from low blood sugar?

A: If someone has low blood sugar, chances are, they are diabetic. Call 911 first thing. But do not sit around and piddle on your butt waiting because there is a time when the body goes too long without sugar (I''d say within 4 minutes of passing out) and you can die. You would get something sweet and give it to them. HOWEVER, do not give them any liquids...they will aspirate it. A diabetic that is on insulin should ALWAYS CARRY Glucagon. Cake frosting, for example, is a good thing to use. Just put it into the sides of their mouth (not a whole lot) and wait until they regain consciousness. Diabetic people need to carry that with them at all...
