Reactive hypoglycaemia is a condition that results in episodes of low blood glucose levels after eating. These episodes usually occur 2-4 hours after a meal. It’s thought that reactive hypoglycaemia is caused by the over-production of the hormone insulin (which lowers blood glucose levels) by the pancreas following a meal that is high in carbohydrates. The cause of reactive hypoglycaemia is unclear.
