Ok here's the situation...my 6yr old son shakes something terrible. He eats something it stops or slows down. I'm getting a prescription from the dr to get him tested for hypoglicemia and diabetes. If it comes back that he is, how do I feed him when all he wants is stuff like carbs which aren't good for him? I have tried talking to him and explaining that he needs to eat better foods so he will feel better, it has only sunk in part way. HELP! I need ideas on what to give him protein wise that he would like...kid friendly recipes and ideas....so I'm calling out to all my friends who know of or have a similar condtion for advise. I realize this is a bad situation, because at times I fear I suffer from it myself. If I don't eat proteins in the morning to refuel myself after the night, I get shaky, clammy and start sweating almost as if I'm going to pass out. So he must get it from me. Thanks to all my sparkbuddies, I've tried to eat better leveling out my blood sugar. There are those mornings when I'm too rushed to eat and end up in trouble. I've never been formally tested myself except for when I was pregnant with the boys. I think with my middle son I was borderline diabetic...but never "offically". So I managed it with diet the best I could. So I can use all the help I can get on this one...please?! Thanks to everybody in advance for it!!
