Snack packs for grownups--the hangry (hungry + angry) kind

I'm a grown woman, but when I haven't eaten and my sugar drops, the "hangriness" starts. The anger, irritation, total irrationality. I've tried carrying luna bars, etc, (though that doesn't help a ton) but I think I'd like to throw together some snack packs (like,a ziplock bag with assorted goodies) for myself to toss in my bag when I'm out the door. I'll also be traveling a lot in the next couple months, and definitely need to be on top of this. I'd love some suggestions on what kinds of food to throw in my snack packs.

What are considered "normal" results for a glucose tolerance test?

I am having trouble getting in with my doctor to review my results, so I'm looking for some initial info to see if it is worth pursuing. I had a glucose tolerance test done because of some symptoms that I'm having. I realize that these results aren't indicative of diabetes because they dip, but they do seem low (though I'm no doctor). Test 1: 95 Test 2: 85 Test 3: 55 Any idea whether I should be trying to schedule with my doctor? I live in a rural area, so it takes quite a trip for me to visit with the doctor.

Hypothyroid, yes, hypoglycemic, yes, angioedemic, yes, hypokalemic, yes. Anorexic, no.

About a week ago I was diagnosed as hypokalemic by a Boston-based Masshealth doctor. Unfortunately, while treating the hypokalemia, the doc rode right over my medical context, which is to say long-standing hypothyroidism, angioedema, and hypoglycemia. Then, to add insult to injury, he decided I fit into the one medical box I don't actually fit into: Anorexia! How do I replace this foolish doc, with a more analytical MassHealth-approved variety? And who knows something about some blend of the low potassium, high-swelling-and-inflammation, high-protein-or-crash, hypothyroid experience? [more inside]

Why does hypoglycemic sweat stink so bad?

I am a type 1 [insulin-dependent] diabetic, and sometimes at night, when I haven't eaten enough to cover the insulin I took that evening, I 'bottom out': my blood sugar goes down very low and I wake up bathed in sweat and must go searching for orange juice. My question is about this: The nighttime sweat from low blood sugar just... stinks. It is powerfully rank sweat, as though I had not washed in many days. My partner agreed, he has noticed that it is different from any other sweat I sweat. "You NEVER smell like that any other time. It's a low blood sugar thing." Yet only at night! I also become clothes-soakingly sweaty if low blood sugar happens during the day, BUT it seems 'normal', the same as when I exercise. Can anyone tell me why this might be? Why is the night-time hypoglycemic sweat so incredibly smelly? [more inside]
