WebMD Weight Loss Clinic: Special Diets

Here are answers to frequently asked questions about how to diet with various medical conditions.

Is the WebMD Weight Loss Clinic suitable for people with hypoglycemia?

People with hypoglycemia need small, frequent and regular meals of healthy foods to keep their blood sugar within normal limits. It's important not to skip meals, and to plan ahead.

To keep your blood sugar from dropping, meals that contain carbohydrates also should have protein and fat. Good examples of healthy snacks would be fruit and cheese, peanut butter and celery, and dried fruit and nuts.

You should always check with your doctor before starting any new diet. When following the WebMD Weight Loss Clinic plan, be sure to select from a wide variety of foods within the meal plan, including:

  • Plenty of fruits and fruit juices
  • Lean meats, fish, poultry, eggs, legumes, nuts and seeds
  • Lots of vegetables
  • Low-fat dairy products
  • Whole grain breads, cereals, and pastas
