Hi everyone. I am on day #4 of the pre-op diet. Today I started feeling terrible, nausea, sweating alternating with chills.... I got up too quickly and passed out. Thankfully my daughter came and checked my blood sugar. It was too low at 55. She got me some squash and I ate that but 30 min later felt bad again. I am on 4 Protein Shakes a day, 1.5 gm of sugar in each, plus 1 cup of low-carb veggies. One Protein Shake can be exchanged for 3 ounces of meat. I don’t know if I can do this diet with fewer than 15 carbs/day. It’s causing me some depression. I am 65 years old, CW269, surgery date 5/5.

Anyone else have these issues?

Maybe check with your regular GP? Or dietician. I'm diabetic as well, but haven't had any issues. Try to take it easy and push Water.

Okay thank you! Called the Bari Clinic; they’re going to call me back Monday. Meanwhile, I added one more cup of low-carb veggies. I also noticed that some of the Protein Shakes on their list have more carbs than Premier Protein. I am looking at good info now at Eatthis.com; it analyzes & compares various ready-to-go Protein Drinks.
