Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Low blood sugar or hypoglycemia is a condition when blood sugar levels are below normal, or below 70 mg / dL. This condition can cause sufferers to experience symptoms of easy hunger, irritability or irritation, fatigue, dizziness, trembling, pale, cold sweat, difficulty concentrating and palpitations.
There are various causes of this condition, including:
Unhealthy eating patterns, such as frequent delays in eating Alcohol consumption Physical activity or excessive exercise that is not balanced eating Lack of hormones that regulate blood sugar balance Lack of nutrition Side effects of certain drugs
Regarding your question, hypoglycemia can be dangerous especially for diabetics, and if the level is severe. In these conditions there can be a decrease in consciousness and seizures, to permanent damage to the brain. But if it occurs in normal people like you, for example hypoglycemia that occurs in healthy people who are fasting, this is not a problem because when they break their blood sugar levels later they will return to normal.
Our advice to you, if you basically do not have any illness, what is important for you to do is eat regularly and with balanced nutrition. Avoid stress and excessive physical activity, increase your consumption of water, and check with your doctor routinely for any symptoms that you experience. If you are still said to have hypoglycemia, ask your doctor about the possible causes of the results of the examination he did. So, hopefully answering your question.
