Diabetes: Dealing With Low Blood Sugar From Insulin

Introduction Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) occurs in people with diabetes when the sugar (glucose) level in the blood drops below what the body needs to function normally. If your blood sugar drops very low (usually below 20 mg/dL) and you do not get help, you could become confused or drowsy or even lose consciousness and possibly die. If you are pregnant, your baby could be harmed. Low blood sugar can develop if you take too much insulin, do not eat enough food or skip meals, exercise without eating enough, or drink too much alcohol (especially on an empty stomach). You can usually treat mild-and sometimes moderate-low blood sugar by eating something that contains sugar. You should teach your friends and coworkers what to do if your blood sugar is very low. How to deal with low blood sugar emergencies Here are some ways you can manage low blood sugar. Be prepared Always be prepared for the possibility of having a low blood sugar level. Keep some quick-sugar foods with you at all times. If you are at home, you will probably already have something close at hand that contains sugar, such as table sugar or fruit juice. Carry some hard candy or glucose tablets with you when you are aw Continue reading >>

    What make you think this is the truth? The reality is that low blood sugar does not kill, even when large amounts of insulin have been injected. Suicide attempts using insulin are seldom successful. Nor is attemted murder using insulin. If death occurs, it is caused by something else. The only successful murder using insulin that I have heard of happened here in New Zealand. A doctor killed his bed-ridden wife with insulin, but he had to inject her every night with it for three weeks before she died ... I agree with Bsc and Mark in the sense that for all intents and purposes, this is a pre-diabetic and Type 2 thread generally dealing with those who have insulin resistance and who are not on insulin. In other words, no, the OP will likely NOT die from reactive hypoglycemia, as mentioned. Perhaps if someone has reactive hypoglycemia from a pancreatic tumour perhaps, or a severely dysfunctional phase 1 insulin response. But in general terms, no, the OP will NOT die. If you are a Type 2 diabetic (insulin resistant and intact alpha cell/glucagon response), don't take insulin or meds, etc. the risk of you having a severe fatal low is pretty much zero. ZERO. However, Mark is correct that even a mild hypo can trigger *another event*, such as a heart attack in those with coronary artery disease. This is why the elderly are often not kept in "tight control".
    However, it is not correct to state that hypos "do NOT kill". THAT is incorrect. In Type 1 diabetes, this happens. The cases you mention are all in people who don't have Type 1 diabetes, and thus have a counter regulatory system intact. If you research Pub Med, you will find lots of information about "dead in bed" syndrome, impaired alpha cell/glucagon function in Type 1 diabetics, cardiac arrhythmias, brain damage and comas associated with severe and prolonged hypoglycemia. It CAN kill, and anyone with any basic science and medical knowledge can deduce that. Many of us know someone who died after a hypo. In fact, I have been told that I went into cardiac arrest after a hypo seizure at age 10. While I'm hear to tell you about it, technically I did "die" and would have stayed that way if I was not in the hospital at the time.
    The brain runs on glucose and oxygen. No glucose, impaired brain function. Anything that deprives the brain from operating properly can cause breathing and heart rhythm to become erratic, and yes, cease. That is documented fact.
    However, since most diabetics are Type 2s and this generally speaking does not apply to them, these facts are often downplayed. Type 2s in general are not at risk for severe hypoglycemia, and doctors don't want Type 2s to be wary about insulin treatment. But we shouldn't minimize the issues faced by Type 1s or elderly Type 2s either.

It would be interesting to find out what dosages were used. Elderly people have weak hearts anyway, and they would be vulnerable to a severe insulin shock induced heart attack.
    I doubt that this would happen with youing people. I witnessed the aftermath of a suicide attempt that involved injecting over 600 units of fast acting insulin, and there was a very quick and complete recovery. Blood glucose was 0.8mmol/l (14mg/dl) when I tested it, which was 4-6 hours after all this insulin was injected. And if assistance hadn't been provide when it was, the suicide may have been successful. But it is extremely unlikely that an accidental hypo would have ths effect.

    As a prediabetic or even a T 2, we really don't need to worry about hypos. I think highs or hypergylcemia is a much more dangerous thing than hypos. Some T 1's are hypounaware and can fall very low without symptoms, this could be dangerous but JMC is having signs when he hits 70 so he knows he is getting low and can eat a few carbs. I think there are lots of myths about diabetes. I think it is important to read and learn as much as you can about diabetes. I think the important thing is although you have to be aware of your diabetes you don't let it run your life. Never be afraid to exercise, drive a car, hike in the mountains or run a marathon. You need to learn how to live life. It sounds like your doctors are trying to figure out what is going on with you, please listen to them and relax and take a deep breath. You could be prediabetic for the rest of your life and never even develop full blown diabetes. If you keep worrying you will develop other problems.
    Just a thought, I know you are a young man in his late 20's. Do you drink alcohol? Diabetics need to watch alcohol consumption. When drinking the liver doesn't process any of the carbs you are eating. You could be low for many hours after, well into the next day. Usually this is more evident with insulin use but it could be a cause if you are drinking the night before. I have several kids your age and I know they all like to drink when they socialise.

    Yes, one can die from hypoglycemia. the above answer is correct. The science behind it is that glucose is like a fuel for organs. That's why, during the day, most people are suggested to have a blood glucose level of 80–120 mg/dl. Below 70 is usually considered hypoglycemic.
    When organs have no glucose, they can't function, and they can respond in drastic ways to conserve energy. That's why immediate sugar (like honey rubbed on the gums) is important. Seizures can happen, coma, heart problems, etc.
    My views are my own.

    About 5% of Type 1 Diabetics die from hypoglycemia each year. In the US, this is about 63,000 people. Statistically, 20% (~12,600) of them are under age 18.
    At the current rate* of diagnosis and death rate, by the year 2050, ~315,000 will die from low blood sugar each year.
    * Type 1 is becoming more common so this figure account for that trend.

    Yes, but very few diabetics do. As a method of committing suicide, inducing low blood sugar levels is remarkably unreliable. I know a type 1 diabetic who was stopped by the police for weaving her car between lanes. She became angry, slugged the policeman, and was only spared jail time by virtue of the fact that she was the editor of the local paper. Her blood sugar level in the ER was 12 mg/dl, which is less than 1 mmol/L. You can be very active at very low blood sugar levels.

Diabetes: Dealing With Low Blood Sugar From Insulin

Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) means that the level of sugar (glucose) in your blood has dropped below what your body needs to function normally. When your blood sugar level drops below 70 mg/dL, you most likely will have symptoms, such as feeling tired, weak, or shaky. Symptoms of low blood sugar can develop quickly. If your blood sugar level drops just slightly below your target range, you may have symptoms of mild low blood sugar. If you eat something that contains sugar, these symptoms may last only a short time. If you have had diabetes for many years, you may not always notice symptoms of mild low blood sugar. This is called hypoglycemia unawareness. If your blood sugar level continues to drop (usually below 40 mg/dL), your behavior may change. Symptoms of moderate low blood sugar may start. You may become too weak or confused to eat something to raise your blood sugar level. If your blood sugar level drops very low (usually below 20 mg/dL), you may lose consciousness or have a seizure. If you have symptoms of severe low blood sugar, you need medical care immediately. Sometimes people with diabetes have low blood sugar levels during the night. If your blood sugar level drops Continue reading >>
