Help For Hypoglycemia: Understanding Low Blood Sugar

You’re irritable and shaky, and suddenly you realize it’s been several hours since you’ve last eaten. Could it be you are suffering from low blood sugar? While issues with high or low blood sugar are symptoms of diabetes, even people who don’t have diabetes can have trouble with low blood sugar. Understanding Hypoglycemia Hypoglycemia is the clinical syndrome that results from low blood sugar. The symptoms of hypoglycemia can vary from person to person but often include dizziness, nausea, weakness, headache, sweating, mental confusion, anxiety, and shakiness. It is diagnosed by a low blood sugar with symptoms that resolve when the sugar level returns to the normal range, which for most people is 90-110 milligrams per deciliter. You can easily purchase a blood sugar monitor at your local pharmacy to keep track of your sugar throughout the day. Blood sugar, or glucose levels, vary throughout the day depending on what you eat, how active you are, and any diabetes medicines or insulin you take. Other factors, such as hormone fluctuations, can affect blood glucose levels as well. While hypoglycemia occurs primarily in people who have diabetes that are managing their blood sugar Continue reading >>

    I'm not hypoglycemic, but this is pretty much the way I eat -- right now I get about 20 points a day, but I almost always earn 4 activity points in addition.
    I haven't been tracking my calories for a while, but I did for a while, too, and the average was probably around 1500 calories.
    It's a good way to eat -- keeps you from getting to hungry, which is what happens when your blood sugar falls, of course.
    Good luck!

    Thank you so much girls. This has helped
    God loves you and so do I







    I'm hypoglycemic, and have used weight watchers for over a year. My doctor did not suggest a certain calorie #, but had me eat protein in each small meal, and fiber.
    I feel SO much better with a good diet. I've lost weight, and have a lot fewer episodes of light headedness, etc. I have to stay away from the refined sugars, or the symptoms are back. The diet is very similar to a diabetics diet, and is very much in line with the WW and Spark healthy eating guidelines.
    I'd suggest logging in your food on Spark for awhile to track calories, and counting the WW points, and see how they stack up. I find that my WW points are the low end of my Spark calorie range for the day, which makes sense because WW gives you the 35 extra weekly points. Just a different way of counting, but it comes to the same outcome, for me anyway.
    Good luck!
