Now call me a hypocondriac if you like, but heres what happened (I dont think I am, I was pretty darn relaxed about everything today).
Cooked some nice new tastes for dinner (which BTW was yum), my using 1/4 teaspoon tumeric, and 2 pretty darn heaped teaspoons cinnamon, along with some oregano and tomato for a chicken stirfry sauce.
About 3/4 of the way through the meal, i started to feel spacey. Then sweating alot, clamy hands, mildly accerelated heart rate (not dangerous, but higher than my normal), and pretty dizzy.
I got online and found both these spices lower blood glucose. After I found that out I drunk a small amount of glucose dissolved in water. It seemed to settle, over an hour. I have read that with low carb (I am 50-80grams/day), the body saves its glucose for the brain. These things seem to offer some kind of explaination...
Yes, I probably overused the spices. But in an average diet person who wasnt diabetic, I doubt they would have noticed any effect.
So my question is, has anyone else got a weird response from these spices on lower carb diets?
(Or is there an alternative explaination for why they had this effect)
(update, it wasnt hypoglycemia, it was hyperthyroid, probably induced by a very large increase of iodine in the diet. Think now my iodine is reduced, my thyroid is better - at least no notable symptoms,bu blood test is next week)
