dropping blood sugar
I have noticed that recently, my bllod sugar has been dropping after eating meals. I tend to eat well, avoiding simple carbs and refined foods. I used to get bouts of low blood sugar in my 20's and at the beginning of my first pregnancy, but have never had complications. the hypoglycemic reactions began about a week ago, returning after about 3 1/2 years of no symptoms. What can cause this? Also, why does it not suubside with meals? Should I consume protein when my blood sugar drops, or more carbohydrates?

HI,
First thing: carbs for low blood sugars, always. Start with simple carbs t pull your blood sugars up wuickly and then have a small amount of more complexed carb, like crackers and peanut butter, to sustain the blood sugar.

There could be many reasons(pregnancy, infections, change in kidney function etc) for a sudden increase in low blood sugars, so you should speak with your doctor right away.Please try to avoid driving until this issue is resolved.

Take care.
