Sometimes (alot of the time) after you eat your body releases insulin to counteract whatever carbs/sugars you have consumed... Many times, especially for those of us with Lyme and poor immune systems, our insulin can be released in a high amount, creating a vicious cycle that actually drops our blood sugar, this is also common with yeast overgrowth . We can't seem to regulate the sugar..
Also, many will say their blood flow is all being directed to the colon to aide digestion- so- a laymans term is 'no flow to the brain' and one will get super sleepy.
My gut tells me this is sugar related, it always is with me, no matter how well we eat or what our diet consists of.. It's a constant battle I fight .. Hope that helps
