DEPRESSION AND FASTING

I am hypo glycemic as well as having chronic depression.  My question is, can fasting for one day make me feel more depressed?

i dont think fasting is a good idea unless you are getting ready for some medical tests.It will make you more depressed.I had the worst time a few years ago when I decided to fast "for the Lord".I had the worst manic depression of my life .
So if you are fasting for medical test you should be alright.
Let me know how you are

Oh no, I can't fast.  It feels just like a panic attack to me.  Not good in my opinion unless for med test.

Thanks for filling me in.  I did try fasting for a day (for relegious reasons) and I was distraught and cranky and lethargic.  I wasn't sure if I was overreacting with my symptons.
