I don't know that hypoglycemia is usually associated with MS or found commonly in MSers.  I've had both myself though.  In my case, I suspect it has a connection to the autonomic nervous system but I've never had a doctor confirm that - never asked them either cause they don't seem to care like  I do.

I also have MS and Hypoglycemia I too don't know if it is related but I wouldn't be surprised if it was as MS effects so many things I am also low vitamin D even with supplements. So the way your body responds and is able to process certain things or lack of ability to process certain things can be an MS thing from what I have personally reseached.  But I to have never asked So your not the only one and I'm glad to hear neither am I.

I have not heard about MS and low blood sugar being related.  I do know that there are many people that have MS and diabetes.  Still the doctor's say they are not related.  I still have the gut feeling that they are related.

Please make sure that your doctor is aware of these times of low blood sugar.  You don't want to take any chances with your health.

Best Wishes,
Heather

Hi, My sister has MS after falling on ice. We noticed she has very low blood sugar. When she eats 6-8 meals a day she walks best. She also found out that when you have low blood sugar your adrenaline kicks in and fatty acids are used up in fat cells and then you get inflamation ie fibrosis. She is taking protein bars and altoids every 4 hours and doing better. I believe also they have glucagon pills. mystry.
