Hypoglycemia Symptoms To Look Out For & Ways To Naturally Treat Them

Uncontrolled glucose levels are one of the most common health problems in the world. Hypoglycemia symptoms frequently affect people with prediabetes or diabetes but are also linked with other health problems, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol and even arthritis. And although it’s rarely mentioned, hypoglycemia has been called “an under-appreciated problem” that’s the most common and serious side effect of glucose-lowering diabetes drugs. (1) Those who are at risk for both hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia are not only people who are ill, overweight or inactive — anyone who consumes a poor diet and has trouble with normal glucose metabolism can develop symptoms.

    Well I'm totally confused now. I thought I was doing so well keeping my BS controlled but now I see I'm not. I took my BS an hour after eating and it was 9.5 that's hight for me. So what is the result you worry about one or two hour test? This is the first I have heard of the one hour test. I'm a worrier so got more to worry about now. I have read a lot of things about diabetes and never seen this. That's how I felt when I realised about this... but as it is a high sugar spike I wondered if it might be harmful in some way. It's a well known fact of Diabetes that PROLONGED high sugar levels cause damage, so I wasn't worried about this 1 hour point. I decided to research my belief and this is what I discovered (outlined above) BUT, I wouldn't worry too much about it, as anyone with an intolerance to sugar will get the same results.
    In my case, it's the Bad carbs, or the fast-acting carbs that cause a 1hour high, which I believe, tells me to eat the better Good carbs for my health.

    So, in simple terms,so that even I can understand it , what is the target 1 hour glucose level we should be aiming for.
    Just tested 1hour after breakfast and I am 151 mg/dl (8,2 mmol/l in your currency). Is this good or bad?

    There's a fine line between being careful with your BG levels and becoming obsessive. The 1 hr test is an indication of how much a certain food can spike you but if it is back to acceptable levels within 2 hrs I wouldn't start getting overly worried with it. Some have a hard enough time as it is and many have to self fund their strips. Try to eat lower GI foods if you can and lower carbs to an acceptable level and this should help.
