What is hypoglycemia?

Low blood sugar levels. This can be fatal as the brain depends on sugar for energy. It is usually caused by diabetes medications, but can also be caused by hormone disorders and insulin overproduction.

Symptoms of hypoglycemia

  • Taking insulin or other diabetic drugs

  • Symptoms improve with meals

  • Seizure

  • Fine tremor of the hands and fingers

  • Speech that does not make sense, or behavior that is strange

  • History of stomach surgery

  • Cold sweats

  • Feel the heart is pounding

Questions your doctor may ask to check for hypoglycemia

  • Are you taking diabetic medications?

  • Does eating improve your symptoms?

  • Have you had a seizure?

  • Do your fingers tremble slightly?

  • Do others think you speak incoherently or act irrationally?

Treatment for hypoglycemia

This condition is first managed by consuming sugar quickly - options include candy, honey, table sugar, or sweet drinks. In severe cases where a patient is unconscious, a sugar-containing drip can be given via a needle in the vein. It is important to find the reason for low blood sugar, to prevent it from happening again.
