We have been having a problem at home. My 14 and 2 year old have been major points of stress in my world. We recently discovered, quite by accident, that the two of them have major sugar issues. I don't know if anyone has heard of "Sugar Rage" but they are doing some very intense studies on it right now.
When my 14, Rachel and 2, Jake have sugar, they hit almost an "alcoholic" rage. It is loud, verbal, emotional and sometimes very physical, even the 2 year old. For quite some time we have considered having Rachel tested for bipolar disorder because of the personality swings, then it started with Jake. We discoved that on days when there was no sugar these didn't happen so we started to experiment.
Long story short, after MONTHS of sever stress and upset, we think we have found the problem. Thank God!!
After consulting with a diatitian we will be going through a nutrition overhaul in our home. All of us. So, I will have a new stress level, but all in all I think that we will all feel better and be healthier.
I have a couple of books ordered and my nutritionist is sending me exchange list for the whole family, but I won't get them until the 20th.
Anyone else experience any of this personally or with family and does anyone have any good nonsugar tricks, recipes?
Thank you all so much! Angie
