> Brooke - yes, that is the correct blood test to use, but it's important what results within that blood test the doctor orders. If it goes for 5 hours it will tell you if it is hypoglycemia (I think that is also important to know). If it goes for 3 hours, the doc is probably testing your diabetes. My test which was three hours tested (and I am reading from the results)
> C-Peptide
> Insulin Stim
> Cortisol Stim

> While I am clear that I have Insulin Sensitivity even after reading all the books on it, I'm confused. After eating certain things I get so sleepy I feel like I'm going to die. Today I ate a Healthy choice Fudge Bar. It's approved by weight watchers, only has 16 carbs which is within the 30 you are allowed at each meal and has 4 grams of protein which is a good ratio carbs to protein, but within 20 minutes I was so sleepy I could not function. I am having a great deal of difficulty determining what exactly it is that makes me sleepy. This morning I had eggs mixed with zuchini, peppers, onions and put salsa on it and I felt like a tiger until I ate the bar at 2pm. Does anyone know how to solve the "sleepy" puzzle?

Even though the Healthy Choice Fudge Bar might have relatively few carbohydrates, the glycemic index (GI) is high because there isn't much fat or fiber to delay absorption. Most packaged and processed foods have a high GI, so you might try getting your carbohydrates from more natural, unrefined foods like fresh fruits and vegetables. Even refined foods that are typically seen as healthy (e.g. 100% whole wheat bread) often have high GI's and could cause insulin spikes and fluctuations in blood sugar.
