Teen star Avril Lavigne is trying to combat her low blood sugar problems by stocking her assistant up with healthy snacks.

The Canadian pop star admits she suffers from grumpy tantrums and tired moments due to her condition - but she's doing what she can to combat it.

She says, "I have hypoglycaemia, so I have to eat certain things.

"Beth (her assistant) carries around yoghurt, cheese, tomato juice and soy milk, which I'm supposed to have every two hours, or else I pass out, feel dizzy."
