Hypoglycemia!

Today what makes you happy, tomorrow it will not! Thank you friends and readers for being here, with special welcome to our folks from the US, New Zealand, India, Japan, the UK, and Netherlands ūüėČ

Hypoglycemia, a condition marked by an extremely low level of blood sugar (glucose), affects one out of 1,000 people in the US. The causes of hypoglycemia can include alcohol consumption; certain medications and cancers; kidney, liver, or heart disease; hormonal deficiencies.

Although insulin is the hormone primarily responsible for maintaining normal Related imageblood sugar levels, these levels can also become too low if the body’s glucose production is interrupted.

The liver and the kidneys are the organs responsible for glucose production, using a  process called gluconeogenesis. Therefore, diseases of the liver, and kidneys that impair gluconeogenesis can result in hypoglycemia.

Some symptoms of huypoglycemia are confusion, double or blurred vision, heart palpitations, anxiety, sweating, hunger, and seizures. To treat hypoglycemia, its underlying cause must first be determined. Urgent initial treatment, though, involves raising blood sugar levels by eating food or by taking glucose tablets.

Carol, a coach on health awareness sent us that informational email, asking to warn people against that condition, so we are trying to help in raising awareness about it here.

You can send any question you have to Carol, and she will gladly answer your concerns.
