Low Blood Sugar: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

When you have diabetes, your blood has a certain amount of sugar in it. This is called blood glucose. Sometimes, your blood glucose can go too low. This is called hypoglycemia or low blood sugar. You may feel sweaty, shaky, hungry, confused, or dizzy when this happens. If you do not treat low blood sugar, you can get very sick or even die.

Low blood sugar can happen for many reasons, but the most common one is taking too much medicine for diabetes. Other things that can cause low blood sugar are not eating enough, working out too hard, drinking alcohol, or having some health problems. To avoid low blood sugar, you should check your blood glucose often, follow your doctor’s advice, and eat healthy food.

Low blood sugar can be fixed by eating or drinking something that has sugar in it, like juice, candy, or glucose tablets. If you still feel bad, you should get medical help or use a shot of glucagon, a hormone that makes your blood sugar go up. Very low blood sugar needs urgent care and may need glucose or glucocorticoids through a vein.

Low blood sugar is a common and dangerous problem for people with diabetes. You should learn how to recognize and prevent low blood sugar. You should also treat it quickly if it happens. This can help you keep your blood glucose at a good level and avoid serious problems later.
