Hi I am new to this community, I was diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia when I was young, all my great aunts and uncles have type 1 or 2 diabetes. The question I have is my doctors have run millions of test on me say it is simply genetic. However when I Google Hypoglycemia, it states that Hypoglycemia is rare besides in case full blown diabetes (due to medication) . What’s up with that?

Also I am a fit 25 year old who weighs 120 and has never been over weight, if I stay fit and eat right can I "cure" my hypoglycemia? I know that the other day when I ate a peanut butter jelly sandwich I started getting sweaty, shaky and my blood sugar went down to 45 before I went to the hospital.

Also when I don’t eat (went on a religious fast for 2 days) I felt fine and my sugar was constantly in the 70's. Any answers are welcome.
