Since one year I am strict gluten free, I usually stick to a LC regime (since two month), because loads of carbs makes me sleepy. Though, a glucose response test did not show any insulin malfunction. The doc said that I don???t have diabetes.
Last weekend I was traveling and used to consume mainly eggs + butter +coconut fat and salad ??? so three VLC days I suppose. On Sunday I noticed my pupils where dilated. I did the eye test (http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/adrenal-info/) and observed after constriction of the pupils a slight dilation. This would indicate lower aldosterone level and adrenal fatigue. However, there are no other symptoms. I easily fell asleep and wake up after 6-7 hour. No brain fog, no other disorders.
I raised my carbs and noticed that it got a little better. During this self-examination I also noticed my eye color had changed from dirty green to almost dirty blue, and in addition, this seems to attract the girls around me (why, ladies, why blue?).
So my questions are:
- Can pupil dilation also be explained with hypoglycemia?
- If adrenal fatigue, what test would you recommend?
- What parameters should be checked, when I need to see a doctor?
- Can supplementation help, and what is essential?
