In Dr. Kraft's 14,384 oral glucose tolerances with insulin assays, there were 5,128 or 35.6% with glucose levels < 60 mg/dl (hypoglycemia) after the 1st hour peak. 3790 or 74% of the 5,128 were hyperinsulinemia, type 2 DM. What's more interesting is 2532 or 49% of 5128 hypoglycemic persons showed normal glucose tolerance which means they would be regarded as normal by OGT, but Kraft's criteria put them in hyperinsulinemia type 2 DM category! Hypoglycemia associated with hyperinsulinemia type 2 DM is designated functional hypoglycemia. Postprandial hypoglycemia is an indication for identification or exclusion of hyperinsulinemia type 2 DM by OGT with insulin assay. Hypoglycemia causes drowsiness following meals, lasting about 30 minutes during which driving is dangerous and reading almost impossible.
