    Dropping from 38 grams to grams can be def what is causing your headaches. Did you feel like not eating or did your dietitian tell you to eat that lower amount? Also, the doctors do say that if PHE levels are below 2, that can be bad too. Hang in there. You will get yourself back to routine once the holiday is over.
