Low Sugar or Hypoglycemia

 

 

Hypoglycemia, also called low blood glucose or low blood sugar, occurs when blood glucose drops below normal levels. Hypoglycemia can happen suddenly. However, it can be treated easily by eating or drinking small amounts of sugar-rich food.
 
If hypoglycemia is left untreated, a person can faint. Severe hypoglycemia can lead to seizures, coma, and sometimes even death.

Causes of Low Sugar :

• Side effect of some diabetes medications
• Too much physical activity

• Eating very little
• Alcoholic drinks
 

Avoiding an Episode Of Hypoglycemia:

The symptoms of hypoglycemia vary from patient to patient and range in severity. The symptoms of hypoglycemia are caused by the nervous system’s response to stress of having low levels of circulating blood sugars.
