I’ve had my appointment with the endocrinologist and it turns out that, in his opinion, the internist at the hospital was “crazy” to suggest insulinoma. His tentative diagnosis is post-gastric bypass hyperinsulinic hypoglycemia. I’m now wearing — for the next week — a little sensor that’s constantly checking my blood sugar and recording the numbers. This, and a food log, will be evaluated next week and we’ll see what comes of it.

For now, we hope to control this by tightening up my dietary rules a bit rather than adding medications or performing surgery. The labs we drew for today, plus the sensor results, will help determine if that’s going to be enough.

So for now, I can breathe somewhat easier. Whew!
