Esophagus removed, now have hypoglycemia. Take acarbose 50mg same results. Suggested to take 1tbs. corn starch before each meal and bedtime in a paste form (not too liquidy) is hard to mix right consistancy. Looking for a pill or other alternative to take, especially when out (not home)
You can find "fill your own" gelatin capsules online, and sometimes you can find them in "health food" stores that sell organic food and health products. They're sold so people can fill their own capsules with their own herbs and such they may either grow and dry themselves or purchase in bulk and make their own herbal supplement capsules, which many times is cheaper than buying them premade. This could be a plausible idea for you, if you need to take corn starch while out in public. You may need to use a few of them at once to equal a tbs., but it would be better than carrying around a measuring spoon and container of cornstarch ;)
