Hypoglycemia is an abnormally low level of glucose (glucose) from the blood. This can result from a sudden rise in glucose in the blood due to sweets and other sweeteners. Diabetes on the other hand is just the opposite and is an abnormally high level of glucose (glucose) from the blood.
Since all the cells of the human body, especially the brain cells, use glucose for fuel, a blood sugar level that is too low starves the cells of needed fuel, causing both physical and psychological symptoms.
Hypoglycemia may be a condition by itself, or might be a complication of diabetes or other ailments. It is most often regarded as a complication of diabetes (due to the fact that lots of doctors do not recognize hypoglycemia without diabetes as accurate illness), which can be called insulin reaction.
SYMPTOMS OF HYPOGLYCEMIA
Listed below are the most common symptoms of hypoglycemia. Typically, the symptoms will go away as soon as you eat (especially if you eat sweets). Eating sweets however isn’t the best way to take care of hypoglycemia.
· Uncontrollable cravings
· Inner trembling
· Blurred vision
· Sudden hunger
· Crying spells
· Mental Confusion
· Heart Palpitations
How can you know if you’re hypoglycemic or not? Is there anyway to test to determine if you’re?
What annoys me is that the answer is no. There’s absolutely no standard approach to check for hypoglycemia (although a little bit of physicians use a sugar test).
According to recent study, it’s estimated that there are close to 100 million people in the United Sates alone who are experiencing hypoglycemia and a lot do not know it. With that many possible situations, wouldn’t you believe that they’d think of a way to test for the illness?
If you suffer from any or a number of the symptoms listed above, yes, you might be hypoglycemic.
You should consult your physician to rule out any potential diseases, but do not enable the physician to take over. You should be proactive in your approach and go with your gut feeling when the doctors tell you that you are fine.
