What Is Hypoglycemia?

Hypoglycemia is a dangerous condition in which your blood sugar drops perilously low. Low blood sugar will most often make you feel shaky and weak. In extreme cases, you could lose consciousness and slip into a coma. People develop hypoglycemia for different reasons, but those with diabetes run the greatest risk of developing the condition. Glucose and Hypoglycemia Your body uses glucose as its main fuel source. Glucose is derived from food, and it's delivered to cells through the bloodstream. The body uses different hormones to regulate the amount of glucose in your blood. Glucagon, cortisol, and epinephrine are some hormones that help regulate glucose. Your body uses another hormone called insulin to help your cells absorb glucose and burn it for fuel. If your blood sugar level drops below a certain point, your body can develop various symptoms and sensations. For people with diabetes, this typically happens when blood sugar drops below 70 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL), although the exact level may vary from person to person. Causes of Hypoglycemia Low blood sugar often happens in people with diabetes who are using insulin or other medicines that increase insulin production or Continue reading >>

    What is normal for a non-diabetic?

    For fun, I decided to test my non-diabetic boyfriend's blood sugar. He's usually in the low 80s, but tonight I tested him at 54 mg/dL. He had dinner about two hours before I tested him, but his dinner was very small and contained virtually no carbohydrates. I know that non-diabetics can go into the "hypo" range all the time and not necessarily feel any symptoms, but how low is too low? He only complained of being very hungry. He wasn't shaky or dizzy. He did seem a little tired, but it was late. So, I'm just wondering if this number is concerning. He was a 67 mg/dL two days ago.

    As long as he's not symptomatic, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Mention it at his next doctor's appointment (if he even has a doctor) and they might want to do some fasting labs on him to get a baseline. Even non-diabetics go a little low sometimes, but they are better able to rebound from it from the release of glycogen by the liver.
    I would say too low for a non-diabetic would be symptomatically low.

    Thanks. I thought so. He was a little cranky, too, but that's typical. I am trying to get him into the doctor for blood work because I suspect his cholesterol is high, and I'll make sure his doctor tests his fasting BG, too.

Can You Have Low Blood Sugar With Type 2 Diabetes?

back to Overview Know-how Type 2 A tag-team approach on low blood sugar with type 2 diabetes. Markus recently wrote an article on our German language blog talking about low blood sugar with type 2 diabetes. The question (“can I have low blood sugar with type 2 diabetes?”) is very common, and it’s easy to see why it’s of concern. So I’ve helped Markus bring his German post to life here in English. I hope it helps! Here’s Markus: Low blood sugar In 2014, results from the DAWN2 study were announced. It was the largest study of its kind (15,000 participants) on the “fears & needs of people with diabetes and their families.” One result stood out: The gravest fears are related to low blood sugars, especially at night. Up to 69% of the participants share this fear! So! Can you have low blood sugar with type 2 diabetes? Yes! Of course! But let’s think about who exactly is at risk – and why. It’s common to think: Type 1 diabetes = at risk for lows Type 2 diabetes = not at risk for lows But that isn’t correct at all, so we should wipe it from our mind. So… what do I need to know? Maybe it’s more accurate to say that people with type 2 diabetes who take certain typ Continue reading >>

Can You Have Hypoglycemia Without Having Diabetes?

Hypoglycemia is a condition that occurs when the sugar levels in your blood are too low. Many people think of hypoglycemia as something that only occurs in people with diabetes. However, it can also occur in people who don’t have diabetes. Hypoglycemia is different from hyperglycemia, which occurs when you have too much sugar in your bloodstream. Hypoglycemia can happen in people with diabetes if the body produces too much insulin. Insulin is a hormone that breaks down sugar so that you can use it for energy. You can also get hypoglycemia if you have diabetes and you take too much insulin. If you don’t have diabetes, hypoglycemia can happen if your body can’t stabilize your blood sugar levels. It can also happen after meals if your body produces too much insulin. Hypoglycemia in people who don’t have diabetes is less common than hypoglycemia that occurs in people who have diabetes or related conditions. Here's what you need to know about hypoglycemia that occurs without diabetes. Everyone reacts differently to fluctuations in their blood glucose levels. Some symptoms of hypoglycemia may include: You may have hypoglycemia without having any symptoms. This is known as hypogly Continue reading >>

    Hi I am not a diabetic but after getting shaky and feeling odd I tested myself with my husband's monitor and my blood sugar was 3.8. Is this normal for a non diabetic or does it need to be discussed with my gp ?

    non-diabetics CAN experience hypos, but 3.8 is far from dangerous. It's probably pretty common in non-diabetics to drop into the 2s and 3 after exercise and if missing meals. It only becomes dangerous under the influence of blood sugar reducing medication, when it CAN keep dropping. Otherwise, the liver will release glucose to correct the problem.
    Despite the tendency for people to panic if bg drops below 4. that is a purely arbitrary number, chosen to make the mantra "4's the floor!" it has no metabolic significance.
    Although I've searched for years, I've NEVER found verifiable evidence of anyone actually dieing from hypo. Not even a diabetic. There is some evidence that occasionally a driver has hypoed, lost control of a vehicle and either killed him/herself or someone else.
    It's possible that a phenomenon called "dead in bed" syndrome, which rarely kills a diabetic is a hypo, but there's no evidence of that.
    In other words a slightly low blood sugar in a person not using hypoglycaemic medicines is HARMLESS and will correct itself if you have your breakfast or if you don't.
