Comment from: Always smiling, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: March 06

I have been diagnosed with hypokalemic periodic paralysis (hypo KPP). I was diagnosed by overloading me with carbs and doing lab tests every 15 minutes. They were checking for reactive post prandial hypoglycemia and discovered hypo KPP by chance. Such a dangerous test to do on a patient with hypo KPP. That was the second time a doctor did a carb overload test on me. The test is debilitating and the symptoms brought on by the test are frightening.
