I am 78 years old.  I suffer from nausea and weakness.  My doctor told me to eat every two hours.  A protein and before bed a protein. My numbers are low.   I just don't feel well.  

Any ideas

    Hi Sandy - I'm Type 2 and 75 so we're much alike and very much in the same boat as I'm not a medically trained person and it's all quite new to me.

    Whilst I can manage quite well during the day pacing out my meals I have a problem overnight,

    I eat my last meal at 8.30pm because I have to allow at least two hours before going to bed because of gastric surgery in 1959 which removed two thirds of my stomach,  By the time I get and have breakfast at around 7.00am it's eleven and a half hours between meals and I'm feeling quite woozy and unsteady.

    What sort of diet do you have? Maybe if you post some details someone more qualified will be able to give some advice.

      Hi Clive

      I'm doing better with my hypo low sugar. Eating a protein every 2 hours it seems to work. Eat especially the protein at bedtime

      Thanks Sandy, I've been thinking along the lines of maybe a peanut sandwich or something like that before bedtime, but then I have the problem of lying down afterwards.

      Hi Kathleen

      Thanks for your advice. I now, per doctor suggestion eat a protein every 2 hours. Especially before bed. One tablespoon peanut butter, cheese etc. and I am feeling much better. Just afraid of gaining weight
