Diabetic Emergencies: Hypoglycemia Caused By Insulin, Part 3

Consequences of acute hypoglycemia Acute hypoglycemia can lead to health damage either directly (from deleterious effects of low blood glucose supply to the brain) or indirectly, usually via trauma due to loss of consciousness or seizures. As an example, hypoglycemia may occur during driving and may obviously cause road traffic accidents…. In the vast majority of cases, recovery from a severe hypoglycemic event, even if it manifests with seizures or coma, is complete. Sometimes, neurologic abnormalities can be observed immediately after recovery of consciousness and improve afterwards. Hypoglycemic hemiplegia is an uncommon condition that has been described as a hemiparetic state, presenting in the morning when the patient awakens after a nocturnal hypoglycemic event. The episode typically resolves after a few minutes or hours and may recur. 28 Permanent neurologic damage and death have been reported rarely, 29 especially after massive insulin overdose and delayed restoration of normoglycemia. 30 Another possible mechanism of acute health damage, including sudden death, due to hypoglycemia is via the induction of cardiovascular events. Hypoglycemia has been implicated in the so-c Continue reading >>

    This has gone far enough. I`m now turning to you guys to help me. I did not have to work today so I got to sleep in and have a relaxing day. Around 2pm I got a bit bored, and then next thing I knew I woke up on the floor in a puddle of sweat and it was 3:30pm. Beside me was and empty box from a large pizza and an empty 2L of pepsi. The last couple weeks have been kinda high stress for me and I have found that my eating habits have gone to shit. I need help, what do you guys do when you find yourself fucking up?

    Usually Im a very strick eater and I dont get cravings or miss shit food - infact it usually makes me sick to even smell it. But the last 2 weeks have been the opposite. Im losing it. Ive read the articles already - massive eating, look good nekid etc. I`ve been reading t-mag since practically the first issue so my head is full of good info - my stomach is just over-riding my good sense. Any suggestions would be great.
