Hypoglycemia

The term hypoglycemia literally means "low blood sugar". It occurs when your blood glucose (blood sugar) level drops too low to provide enough energy for your body's activities.

Hypoglycemia can produce a variety of symptoms and effects but the principal problems arise from an inadequate supply of glucose as fuel to the brain, resulting in impairment of function. Derangements of function can range from vaguely "feeling bad" to coma, and (rarely) permanent brain damage or death.

In adults or children older than 10 years, hypoglycemia is uncommon except as a side effect of diabetes treatment, but it can result from other medications or diseases, hormone or enzyme deficiencies, or tumors.

In general, plasma glucose levels below 70 mg/dl or 3.9 mmol/L are considered hypoglycemic.

Diabetics should always keep a sterile finger lancet, test strips, and alcohol pads near them for emergency testing of their blood sugar. Alot of the new products out on the market make life easier and less nerve-racking when managing diabetes supply on a daily basis. Diabetics should always have on hand necessary medical supplies for their well-being and back-up supplies in the car and at work.
