A False Sense Of Hypoglycemia

By Nora Saul, M.S., R.D., C.D.E., Manager of Nutritional Services at Joslin Hypoglycemia is defined as a blood glucose level below 70mg/dl. But many people find that they feel the symptoms of low blood glucose at levels much higher than expected. Some patients have come into my office reporting getting sweaty, hungry and tachycardic at levels in the mid 130s. Symptoms of hypoglycemia are individual, but may include extreme hunger, nervousness, excessive perspiration, rapid heartbeat (tachycardia), headache, fatigue, mood changes, blurred vision and difficulty concentration and completing mental tasks. Extremely low glucose levels can lead to disorientation and convulsions. People who take insulin or some oral medications that cause the pancreas to produce insulin are usually prone to episodes of hypoglycemia. This is especially true if they are attempting to keep their glucose level as close to normal as possible. But, people in poor control can also have hypoglycemic reactions as they swing from high to low glucose levels. False hypoglycemia is usually due to one of two causes. The first can be compared to an incorrectly programmed thermostat. If you usually keep your room at a st Continue reading >>

    What's going on if I feel hypoglycemic but blood sugar looks normal?

    I keep feeling suddenly dizzy, nauseous, light-headed, trembly, etc. like I've always thought meant my blood sugar was low. Eating carbs seems to usually stop it. But I got a glucometer and according to it my blood sugar is normal during that time. I've got to wait until Feb. 10 for my MD to fit me in, but went to the ER this weekend with hypertension - heart was beating irregularly and fast, super high blood pressure, dizzy, shaky, weak muscles, felt stupid and confused. It felt like I was going to die. I'm trying to figure out how to prevent this from happening again while I wait for blood work results to come back. My book "The Schwartzbein" Principle says to eat small meals and snacks with the carbs balanced with protein and fat, so I'm trying that.
    My current theory is that my body ramped up the adrenaline to make up for low blood sugar, and the adrenaline did that to me - ?
    I got some l-theanine to counteract adrenaline, and so far so good it seems to help but it's only been a day.
    I'd just started to diet (New Year's thing) by eating a lot more fruit and veggies, less carbs, so I'm wondering if the carbs getting low combined with insulin resistance might have made me start feeling this way? I know I also have some serotonin and thyroid problems, but it's hard to tell what's causing what.

    Hard to know without à meter. Fruit turns to sugar and you could have what's called a hyper\hypo episode. Blood sugar goes up then goes down but they need to get to the bottom of it.

    Do you think that "low blood sugar feeling" is actually from low blood sugar or from adrenaline kicking in to raise it?

Adrenal Fatigue And Hypoglycemia Symptoms – Part 1

Reset Hypoglycemia Symptoms One of the classic signs of Adrenal Fatigue are hypoglycemia symptoms. Traditionally hypoglycemia is a medical term for a state produced by a lower than normal level of blood sugar. Unfortunately, no single glucose value alone satisfactorily gauges all people because many variables are involved. While there are no disagreements as to the normal range of blood sugar (90-110 mg/dl), debate continues as to what degree of hypoglycemia warrants medical evaluation and treatment, or can cause harm. Throughout the 24-hour cycle of a day, blood plasma glucose levels of healthy people are generally maintained between 72 and 144 mg/dL (4-8 mmol/L) while 60 or 70 mg/dL (3.3 or 3.9 mmol/L) is commonly cited as the lower limit of normal glucose. Many healthy people can occasionally have glucose levels in the hypoglycemic range without hypoglycemia symptoms of disease. This makes hypoglycemia a difficult clinical state to establish in the first place. The problem is further compounded in those with Adrenal Fatigue. In Adrenal Fatigue, the hypoglycemia symptoms experienced is more often than not sub-clinical. This means that the person has clinical hypoglycemia symptoms Continue reading >>

    Maybe you should check his blood pressure or temperature instead. Sometimes patient's assign the wrong reasons to what they're feeling. Since the patient isn't a known diabetic, never had a hypoglycemic episode, isn't on insulin or oral hypoglycemics; but nonetheless feels something, then you need to investigate what that something (now known to be NOT hypoglycemia) is.
    Further, classic symptoms of hypoglycemia would include:
    hunger
    shakiness
    nervousness
    sweating
    dizziness or light-headedness
    sleepiness
    confusion
    difficulty speaking
    anxiety

    weakness
    I would question the patient as to exactly what he was feeling, and instruct him to describe it without trying to assign a clinical cause (low blood sugar) to it.

    Maybe it was hypoglycemia but transient.
    Some people who frequently run high sugars start feeling hypoglycemic at numbers that are normal or even above normal.
    Perhaps your friend or patient should have a GTT and make sure about not being diabetic.
    A patient we once had had episodes of hypoglycemic feelings but her GTT was normal, as were here sugars all the many times we checked them. Saw a neurologist, cardiologist, and endocrinologist, as well as internist NP. These episodes are believed to be due to a degree of mitral valve failure. Wow. So something is going with your patient. The body is wonderful and mysterious. Sometimes we have to sleuth.
    Yeah, yeah, I know all about horses and zebras. Well, I think rare diseases are supposedly rare because no one believes those hoofbeats could be pointing to a zebra.
    Don't forget occult infection, drug interaction or reaction, must be dozens of things to rule out.

    I told my doctor about the symptoms I'd get if I hadn't eaten for a few hours. Told him I'd feel weak, sometimes dizzy, get a headache, shakiness, get angry easily.
    I asked him if this could be hypoglycemia and if I should be tested. He said no need to test you, just make sure you eat every 2 - 3 hours. So that's what I do, I never skip meals and have snacks in between.
    Bottom line, if you're patient is non-diabetic and gets hypoglycemic symptoms...did you ask him how often he eats?

Low Blood Sugar Symptoms But Normal Levels

High blood sugar usually feels bad. Kerri Sparling of the blog Six Until Me said, “It’s a thick feeling in the base of your brain, like someone’s…replaced your gray matter with sticky jam.” Other people report physical symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, headaches, blurry vision, thirst, and frequent urination. These symptoms often drive people to seek help, which is a good thing. Other people can get used to high sugars. They may feel few or no symptoms. That’s not good, because blood vessel damage is still going on, even if you can’t feel it. If your body gets comfortable with higher blood sugars, normal sugars may start to feel bad. A woman named Angela posted to Diabetes Daily, “I feel so crappy when my [blood sugar] is in the 90s…. That seems to be about 50% of the time. Sometimes I test when I’m feeling GOOD and it’s [much higher]…. I want a low A1C, but I don’t want to feel ‘fuzzy’ all the time either.” What is happening is that Angela’s body adjusted to higher sugars. Now she’s getting tighter control, but she’s not used to it. On another site, diabetes educator Janet Mertz explained, “Because your body is accustomed to the higher lev Continue reading >>
