Hypoglycemia Without Diabetes, Causes And Effects

Hypoglycemia without diabetes is so common in North America that chances are it could have already affected you. I would dare say that at least three quarters of adults are being affected regularly by low blood sugar, but very few are even aware of it. Since hypoglycemia may lead to diabetes it is worthwhile to recognize low blood sugar symptoms, because only at that point can you stop the process. Before going any further download the chart below to have a quick reference on different faces of hypoglycemia Although it is logical that not eating for a long time will eventually cause a drop in blood sugar, hypoglycemia without diabetes does not only happen after starvation. The two most common causes of hypoglycemia are unfortunately nearly always missed. Hypoglycemia without low blood sugar It may be surprising to learn, but it is possible to experience symptoms of hypoglycemia without actually having low blood sugar. A sudden surge of epinephrine, a stress hormone, can mimic symptoms of low blood sugar. Epinephrine can trigger heart palpitations, sweating, and shaking exactly mimicking hypoglycemia symptoms. Although epinephrine is released when glucose gets low, it can also be re Continue reading >>

    How soon to test blood after meals

    How soon should I check my blood glucose reading after a meal?
    For the first time I started to check readings 15 mins after meal and it was high. I tested it after eating 6 tacos and 3 small candy bars with my first reading at 205. I thought that was a mistake and checked it again 3 minutes later it was 179. 30 mins after meal it was at 149. It then went down to 110 after 1.5 hours.
    Did another test the next day around 15 minutes after eating 20 carb breakfast and got a reading at 125.
    In the past month I was always testing 1 hour, 2 hour and up to 5 hours after meals.
    Readings were consistently around 113 average and the problem is it stays that way for up to 5 hours depending on what I eat. My overnight 8 hour fasting is always around 95. I dont take meds and considered pre diabetes with A1C at 5.9.
    Any advise on how soon to test blood after meals and I assume it should never go over 200 right after a meal?

  2. Daytona

    I change when I test based on how quickly I think I am going to spike. The point isn't to see what your blood sugar is at a certain time, but to understand how high it went total and how long it took to come back down to normal.
    So if I eat something that is mostly carb (e.g. cake), I will test very early and often, usually every 15 minutes because by 1 hour it may have come down from 200 to 110. If I had just tested at 1 hour, I would have missed the highest point.
    When I eat something very fatty (e.g. cheesecake), I may delay the first test until 1 hour and then test every hour for 4 hours until it's back to normal. I stop testing when it's back to normal, so however long that takes that's how much I test.
    As you test more you will develop a feel for "this will spike hard and fast so I should test early and often" or "this will spike slowly but last freaking forever".
    It's worth mentioning that I only do this for foods that I haven't tested before or if I think I will go too high. I don't bother if I've tested the food before and know that it won't be a problem. That way I save up my strips for when I really need to know.

  3. diabetes86

    You went to 205 because you ate a lot of carbs. Every time your BG goes over 140 you are doing damage to your body. so as Daytona said it depends on what you eat as to when the spike happens. As your diabetes progresses, that amount of carbs will drive your BG higher and for a longer time. The damage will add up, with readings like that and with enough time you will get complications.

In this video I discuss what is stress, why is stress bad, and what causes stress. I also cover how stress is bad, how to deal with stress, and stress management. Transcript What is stress? Whats up dudes, and whats up ladies, Bryan here and in this video we are going to look at stress. What is it, what causes it, and what can we do about it? So, Lets roll. Stress hormones Stress is your body's way of reacting to any kind of demand or threat. When the body feels stress, your hypothalamus, a tiny region in your brain, signals your adrenal glands, located atop your kidneys, to release a surge of hormones, which include adrenaline and cortisol, into the bloodstream. As these hormones are released, the liver is triggered to produce more blood sugar, which gives you an energy kick, breathing becomes more rapid, and heart beat and blood pressure rise. If the stress is caused by physical danger, these chemicals can be beneficial, as they give you more energy and strength, and also speed up your reaction time and enhance your focus. But, if the stress is caused by something emotional, it can be harmful, because there is no outlet for this extra energy and strength. Once the source of the s

    differences in BG readings 30 seconds apart

    I've recently become a bit more diligent about testing. There have been times when my number is too high (because of dietary indiscretion usually), but other times when it's too high for no good reason I can think of. When that's happened, I test again immediately, using the other side of the same finger, and almost every time I'll get a reading that's about 30 points (USA) or more below the first one.
    How normal/acceptable is that?
    For instance, my fasting reading this morning was 198. Too high, obviously, and my endo and I are working on it, trying different things, etc. Within 30 seconds I had tested again on the other side of the same finger and it was 163. Another time, it was 270 (not fasting) the first time, and 201 30 seconds later.
    Like I said, I know these numbers are too high, and they don't represent all my readings because, if I get more or less what I was expecting or what seems reasonable, I don't re-test (strips being expensive).
    My meter is a One-Touch Ultra, the strips are well within freshness, the meter is coded to the strips, and the control solution checks out (although it has a pretty wide range itself). The meter is probably about 5 years old and I've ordered a One-Touch Ultra2 just because it felt like it might be "time".
    Can an old meter start giving such wildly different readings even on virtually spontaneous samples? Or could it be defective strips, or can my blood sugar be that unstable?

  2. philyphil

    Dear DataDame, I too use the onetouch ultra. I have had the same thing happen with inconsistent numbers/results. I thing these meters are close but not perfect. I also think that the consistency of sugar in the blood fluctutates so it may be higher in one drop than in another. The in hospital lab results are the closest real measure - I hope - but these home testing devices are reliable but not perfect. I just look for a good average and try not to be too perfecionistic about it because that starts to drive me bonkers!

  3. Spike

    Repeat your back to back tests, using the SAME drop of blood. The results with that model meter should be MUCH closer than the 30 points you reported.

Hypoglycemia

Chapter 6 HYPOGLYCEMIA What is hypoglycemia and what causes it? In a society where sugar is consumed at alarming rates, some people find out from blood analysis that their blood sugar or glucose is low, that is, in medical terms, they are "hypoglycemic" ('hypo' refers to low and 'glycemia' means sugar). People that suffer from too much sugar in the blood are referred to as being "hyperglycemic" or using the more common terms, are prediabetic or diabetic. There needs to be a certain level of sugar in the blood for normal body functioning. The body regulates this sugar level by the secretion of regulating hormones one of which is insulin produced by the pancreas. As the level of insulin rises, the blood sugar level falls. Less insulin results in increased blood sugar levels. For most people, this insulin level fluctuation is a normal process but when the pancreas acts abnormally, problems develop. Although hypoglycemia can be caused by many complex factors such as emotional and physical stresses, large amounts of alcohol consumed on a daily basis, coffee, smoking, nutritional and enzyme deficiencies, and many other medical conditions, the large consumption of refined carbohydrates, ( Continue reading >>
