Rodney McKay’s Hypoglycemia

Just a little fun fact. There’s a lot of debate about whether or not Rodney (from Stargate Atlantis) really has hypoglycemia (low blood sugar problems) or if maybe he just claims so for attention. However, what many fans don’t know is that there is also Stargate Atlantis literature which is officially considered to be part of the canon narrative, and in these books Rodney’s hypoglycemia is taken more seriously. This confirms that his condition isn’t just something casually mentioned and thus holds more legitimacy. And since the books are canon, that would make it the same for his condition.


“Let me ask you a question. Say there’s a runaway train. It’s hurtling out of control towards ten people standing in the middle of the tracks. Only way to save those people is to flip a switch, send the train down another set of tracks. The only problem is—there is a baby in the middle of those tracks.”
