> Have you been checked for hypoglycemia or diabetes??

Hi Spriggy: Yes, I've been checked for both, and both were negative. However I KNOW I'm hypoglycemic - the tests for this are notorious for being mis-intepreted, per the individual's response. I had all the symptoms several years ago, so I started taking chromium picolinate, which helped tremendously. Since then I've laso changed my diet to high protein, low simple carbs.

Tamara suggested the same thing, so I thought I'd add an additional 200mcg at night time.

Since I posted, I've also been back to my Pdoc, who feels the extended stress I've been under lately, in conjunction with my GAD, has caused the onset of mild depression that has worsened. He's upped my Tryptophan back to 1500mg per day.

You make a good point about noticing the blood sugar though, because, in addition to the AM stuff, I was beginning o get grumpy, lethargic in the evening too. When I analyzed how I'd been eating during this period of stress, I realized that I was often not eating AT ALL, missing several meals a day. No doubt that was contributing too! Back to eating regularly, whether I feel like it or not!

SOOOOOOO....I'm hoping that this change will help.
Just shows how many things we need to be aware of, always.
Thanks for your interest, and take care.
