Non-hypoglycemia - a.k.a. Idiopathic postprandial syndrome -

- describes a collection of clinical signs and symptoms similar to medical hypoglycemia but without the demonstrably low blood glucose levels which characterize said condition.“

Source : Wikipedia

The symptoms, which include :

  • Shakiness
  • A sense of weakness
  • Altered or depressed mood
  • Confusion
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Paleness
  • Perspiration
  • Increased pulse or respiratory rate
  • Hunger

- typically appear a few hours after eating.

Unlike 'true' hypoglycemia (lack of blood glucose) the syndrome does not lead to damage to the nervous system.

The syndrome is widespread - actual numbers are unknown, but some have described it as 'an epidemic'.

The causes are not currently known.

The are suggestions that the syndrome may not in fact be a 'real' disease. In October 1974, The New England Journal of Medicine featured an article entitled Non-hypoglycemia as an epidemic condition describing the condition as a “non-disease”.
