A (http://journals.lww.com/co-endocrinology/pages/default.aspx) study  published in Current Opinion in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Obesity suggests these are classic signs of reactive hypoglycemia, and could be insulin resistance symptoms, which is more serious and a warning sign of diabetes.
[4] reported on a case of a patient with reactive hypoglycemia. This patient was insulin resistant as demonstrated by the use of a euglycemic hyperinsulinemic glucose clamp; therefore, after treatment with pioglitazone to decrease insulin resistance, the patient showed a normal glucose level.
Neither reactive hypoglycemia nor hyperinsulinemia was detected by the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) (Table 2(b)).
In this context, we aimed to evaluate the effect of the acute increase and decrease of glycemia on circulating proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines levels by assessing patients with clinical symptoms suggesting reactive hypoglycemia. The reason for selecting these specific individuals was the possibility to obtain a glycemic curve with a hyperglycemic followed by a hypoglycemic phase.
On Monday, Sandra's family made an appeal in which they stated that she suffers from chronic reactive hypoglycemia which causes fainting and requires a special diet and medical attention.
* Reactive hypoglycemia, in which blood sugar falls below normal (less than 70 mg/dL) within 2--4 hours after a meal
