Hypoglycemia and Diabetes

Brian King3/28/1452 comments

Causes of Hypoglycemia in Diabetes

In people with diabeteshypoglycemia (low blood sugar) develops when there is not enough sugar (glucose) in your body to be used as fuel for cells. A number of different factors can cause hypoglycemia, including certain medications and diet. Certain medical conditions can also make hypoglycemia more common in people with diabetes.

Symptoms of Hypoglycemia

Most people feel symptoms of hypoglycemia when their blood sugar is 70 mg/dL or lower.

Each person with diabetes may have different symptoms of hypoglycemia. You will learn to recognize yours.

Early symptoms of hypoglycemia may include:

  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Feeling shaky
  • Hunger
  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Pounding heart; racing pulse
  • Pale skin
  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Weakness
  • Anxiety

Without treatment, more severe hypoglycemia symptoms may develop, including:

  • Headache
  • Feeling irritable
  • Poor coordination
  • Poor concentration
  • Numbness in mouth and tongue
  • Passing out
  • Nightmares or bad dreams
  • Coma

Diabetes Drugs Linked to Hypoglycemia

Certain types of oral diabetes drugs can cause low blood sugar. These include the sulfonylureas and meglitinides. Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors, biguanides, and thiazolidinediones alone should not cause hypoglycemia but can when used with other diabetes medicines.

The older oral diabetic medications tend to cause low sugar more frequently than newer drugs used to treat type 2 diabetes. Examples of these first generation drugs include:

Other diabetes medications that can cause low blood sugars include: glimepiride (Amaryl), Nateglinide (Starlix), Prandin (replaglinide), and sitagliptin (Januvia). Taking these pills alone or in combination can cause low blood sugars to occur.

Other drugs that can cause low blood sugars include the use of alcohol, aspirin,Benemid, Coumadin (warfarin), Zyloprim (allopurinol), or Probalan (probenecid) with diabetic medications.

Hypoglycemia can also occur if you take too much insulin for the amount of carbohydrates consumed.

Ask your health care provider if your medication can cause hypoglycemia.

Diet and Hypoglycemia in Diabetes

Hypoglycemia can occur in someone with diabetes following a meal that contains a lot of simple sugars. This condition is called reactive hypoglycemia. It may also develop if a person with diabetes misses a snack, doesn't eat the whole meal, eats later than usual, doesn't eat when ill, or drinks alcohol without eating any food. Therefore, it's particularly important for people with diabetes to not skip meals, particularly when they're taking diabetes medications. Intense exercise may also trigger a hypoglycemic reaction.

Hypoglycemia Treatment in Diabetes

If you suspect you have hypoglycemia and have diabetes, check your blood sugar level.

If you have blood sugar levels that frequently drop after meals that have a high content of simple sugars, a way to diminish these episodes of reactive hypoglycemia is through a more balance diet. Avoid simple sugars and eat frequent small meals during the day.

If you experience low blood sugar when you haven't eaten (fasting hypoglycemia) have a snack before bedtime, such as a protein or a more complex carbohydrate.

Your doctor may determine that you are taking too much insulin that peaks toward the evening to morning hours. In that case, he or she may decrease your insulin dose or change the time when your last dose of insulin is given.

Other things that you can do to help yourself get through the low blood sugar episode start by consuming 15 grams of a fast-acting carbohydrate such as :

  • Take two or three glucose tablets (available at pharmacy).
  • Take one tube of glucose gel (available at pharmacy).
  • Chew four to six pieces of hard candy (not sugar-free).
  • Drink 1/2 cup fruit juice.
  • Drink 1 cup skim milk.
  • Drink 1/2 cup soft drink (not sugar-free).
  • Eat 1 tablespoon honey (placed under your tongue for rapid absorption into the bloodstream).
  • Eat 1 tablespoon table sugar.
  • Eat 1 tablespoon corn syrup.

Fifteen minutes after you have eaten a sugar-containing food, check your blood sugar again. If you do not feel better and your blood sugar is still less than 70 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter), eat another serving of one of the foods listed above. Repeat these steps until your sugar normalizes.

Eat a carbohydrate and protein snack such as peanut butter crackers or cheese and crackers, or a half of a sandwich.

Keep a record of the date and time of day your reaction occurred and what you did. This can help your doctor look for a pattern and help you adjust your medications.

Call your health care provider if you have more than one unexplained hypoglycemic reaction in a week.

Hypoglycemia may cause you to pass out. If so, you will need someone to give you a glucagon injection. Glucagon is a prescription medicine that raises blood sugar and may be needed with severe hypoglycemia. It is important that your family members and/or friends know how to give the injection in case you have a low blood sugar reaction. Talk with your health care provider about the use of glucagon.

If you witness a loved one suffering from a severe hypoglycemic reaction, call 911 or take them to the nearest hospital for treatment. Do not try to give an unconscious person food, fluids, or insulin as they may choke.

Note: It is very dangerous to drive during a low blood sugar reaction. If you are driving and you experience symptoms of hypoglycemia, safely pull off the road and eat a glucose-containing (sugary) food. Wait at least 15 minutes and repeat if necessary. Eat a protein and carbohydrate source (such as peanut butter crackers or cheese and crackers) before continuing to your destination. It is important to keep a sugar source, a protein and carbohydrate source in your car at all times for emergencies.

Hypoglycemia Prevention for Those With Diabetes

If you have diabetes, ways you can prevent hypoglycemia include:

  • Follow your meal plan.
  • Eat at least three evenly spaced meals each day with between-meal snacks as prescribed.
  • Plan your meals no more than four to five hours apart.
  • Exercise 1/2 to one hour after meals.
  • Double-check your insulin and dose of diabetes medicine before taking it.
  • Know when your medicine is at its peak level.
  • Carry a sugar source with you at all times. It is important to keep a sugar and protein and carbohydrate source in your car for emergencies.
  • Test your blood sugar as often as directed by your health care provider.
  • Ensure a family member or friend knows how to administer a glucagon injection in severe cases of hypoglycemia when you may be unconscious.

Prolonged or frequent episodes of low blood sugar present a risk to your health. It is very important to recognize the warning signs of low blood sugar and treat it promptly.

Talk with your health care provider if you have more than one unexplained low blood sugar reaction in the same week.

Wear a medical identification tag (for example, MedicAlert) and/or carry an identification card that states that you have diabetes.

I’ve always dreamt of winning BIG in the lottery. I surfed the internet for help to win the lottery massively and I was directed to the DR Amber website. I had a chat with him about what I needed and he assured me that his spell will make me become a lottery winner. He got back to me after 3 days with the numbers that I needed to play the lottery and told me to believe in myself. I felt enveloped by the control of the spell. I took his words and played the Mega Millions Lottery. Two days later, I was sent an email that I’ve won the sum of 107 Million Dollars. I was shocked and couldn’t believe what my eyes were seeing. Immediately I was given the cash prize, I stopped working. I want to say a very big thank you to DR Amber for helping people like us who really need help. Now I know that there’s absolutely nothing too hard for DR Amber to do. To get in touch with him, email : amberlottotemple@yahoo.com or click his webpage URL___ amberlottotemple.com

Believe it or not Dr Amber has come to stay to do wonders with his spells. I overheard my co-worker telling his cousin how Dr Amber helped him get back his partner within 24 hours . I was amazed about what he said. I searched for this man called Dr Amber online and guess what… He had so many good reviews online about his work. I got in contact with him to win the lottery and he assured me that winning the lottery is not a problem but what do I intend doing with the winnings. I told him what I will do when I become a winner. Dr Amber prepared a spell and prayed for me for 3 days before he told me where to play the Lottery. I did as he instructed me with a positive mindset. To my greatest shock, I was announced the winner of $1,000 dollars everyday for life which is equivalent to a cash prize of $7,000,000 million dollars.. I have no words to thank Dr Amber but to share your good works to everyone that needs help. Visit: amberlottotemple.com or Email: amberlottotemple@yahoo.com

My husband divorced me and went after his ex and left me heart broken for 2 years. I have been playing the lottery for some years before I got married and I have never won any big amount. I continued to play the lottery but I couldn’t win more than $500 dollars until I was introduced to Dr Amber that is a strong Haiti spell caster. I had a chat with him via +18084815132 telling him what a mess my life has become. He encouraged and promised to get my man back for me and to help me win the lottery. There were specific instructions that was passed to me by him which I adhered to as he prepared the spell for me that brought back my husband within 36 hours and he gave me some sure numbers to play the lottery game. I used the numbers to play the lottery and I won $10,000,000 million dollars and all this happened within a week after I knew Dr Amber. It doesn’t matter what you are going through in life Dr Amber is here to help. Website: amberlottotemple.com

Hi Everyone online. I’m Leroy and I finally understood how spell works. My wife left me due to the fact that I was diagnosed with Herpes Simplex Virus.

I did all i could to get her back but all i did never worked out for me not until my cousin from Canada got me informed about this man called Prof Ibrahim that he’s very powerful and can be of help to me. I believed and got in touch with the Prof Ibrahim and i opened up to him everything that i was going through. Could you believe it that I was cured from the Herpes Simplex Virus and my wife came back all within 24 hours just as he told me if only you have faith & believe, your miracle will happen.

Simon on 2/11/22

Hi, I’m so happy to write this out for everyone to see. I am Simon Peter by name and I work as a taxi driver. I love playing lottery but I have not won any huge sum except for a few Pounds. I decided to search online for help on how I can win very big because I have been playing lottery for the past 12 years. Then, I saw a post of a spell caster named Abdul Basser who specializes in lottery and love spells. I contacted him and he told me everything about how to get the spell done for me and I agreed. He prepared a powerful lottery spell for me and within 3 days, he gave me the numbers to play the lottery of which I did and after 2 days, I was told that I have won the sum of 3 million Pounds on the lottery game I played. I was surprised about it and I had to make sure I verified everything before believing that I was the winner of 3 million Pounds and ever since then, my life has changed and I am so happy living my dream life. If you need help to win your lottery game, WhatsApp or Call Abdul Basser on: +27717403094 or email: basserabdul59@gmail.com, visit his website , http://www.africanspellscaster.co.za.
