Hypoglycemia: What Do You Feel In Your Body? What Do You Feel In Your Mind?

A word of caution about the values used below. This study was conducted using people without diabetes. Some people with diabetes experience symptoms at higher glucose levels than the study suggests. Other people with diabetes appear to function well with blood sugars in the 30’s and 40’s (mg/dl). Therefore, the values in the study should only be used as an approximation. This study also used plasma glucose levels. Your values done at home might be 20 percent lower or higher than these lab values. For example, epinephrine release in someone without diabetes would begin at about 63mg/dl with a home blood glucose meter. More caution: Many people with long-standing type 1 diabetes completely lose some of these responses. The glucose counter-regulation system becomes impaired sometime during the first few years of diabetes. This impairment is unusual in that it seems to be hypoglycemia-specific: the ability of glucagon and epinephrine to respond to other stimuli is basically unchanged, but is reduced or absent when dealing with hypoglycemia. The cause of this is not known, but it is closely linked with the lack of insulin production. SIDE BAR: HYPOGLYCEMIA, What Happens As Your Bloo Continue reading >>

    Low blood sugar

    What does having low blood sugar do to you. I was at work yesterday, and half way through the day I started getting a major headache, and sweating. I am new to all of this an still learning the signs of low blood sugar for me. Well when I got home I checked my blood sugar and it was 83. After I ate something things quickly improved. I guess the moral of the story for me is that If I start to get a headache and start to sweat for me that I a sign of low blood sugar. My other question is what happens to you guys and gals if you get low blood sugar. Also can you go into a coma if your sugar gets to low?

  2. Pepper2017

    I used to get dizzy, or light headed (learned the difference real quick) shaky, with low blood sugar. Below 70 most need to eat, that is considered low really. I sometimes still feel it around 70 or close to it. I normally (knock on wood) don't have much trouble with my numbers. I did at one time though years ago. yes, to your second question, you could go into a coma from very low BS if you are on insulin…or possibly meds. for those controlling by diet and exercise, I do not think that is a possibility for them. Make sure you have those glucose tablets with you, and your meter at all times, and maybe something like a sugary drink you can keep in your car or something ,good to have 2 things you can choose from that are fast acting. Don't overdo though, sometimes with a low, many people want to drink too much sugar, which can cause a problem later, with numbers too high and like a roller coaster. Eat protein after your numbers go up to normal.

    Sorry for you feeling low. No fun for me. I would sweat feel shaky and sometimes would get a funny feeling in my stomach. I do not get the lows much any more since off insulin. Make sure you have glucose tablets on you and also when you feel that way check your blood sugar. If low take a couple of the glucose tablets and recheck 20 minutes later. Or drink a half cup of orange juice or 1/2 cup of coke.

What A Low Blood Sugar Feels Like

What A Low Blood Sugar Feels Like Here I am again. Where I find myself vulnerable and exposed to the most unsettling and debilitating aspect of diabetes that consumes my mind and body in a short amount of time. A low blood sugar which was caught unexpectedly and suddenly. A low blood sugar or (hypoglycemia) meaning that my glucose level drops below 70 mg/dL and I now starve for energy. It’s a feeling I know all too well, and I feel as weak as I did the last time. I can’t run from it but only bear through it, fix it, and come out of it once again. It has caught me dead in my tracks. I urge to resist this constraint it has over me. “No I’m fine”, I think to myself. “My meter must be inaccurate”. But I know that I’m not okay. I’m tired, even more than I usually am (if that’s even possible). All I want to do is lay down and go to sleep. I know that this is my body wanting to shut down. My mind is the first to trail off, and my body takes a little longer to catch up. I start to feel confused, dazed, and slightly numb to my surroundings. I start to lose myself in the moment and focus heavily on something random. It takes a minute or two to take in what’s going on. I 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?

Hypoglycemia Alert: How Low Is Your Blood Sugar?

Are you feeling shaky and weak? Nervous and sweating for no apparent reason? It could be hypoglycemia – low blood sugar – a symptom, just like fever, that signals something is wrong with your health. When it comes to the early signs of hypoglycemia, and what causes hypoglycemia, diabetics already have an understanding of the condition. They know they have to keep their blood sugar in the healthy range because their body either can’t produce insulin (type 1 diabetes) to handle sugar in the body, or they can’t use insulin effectively – they’re insulin-resistant (type 2 diabetes). However, hypoglycemia, also commonly called low blood glucose, can happen to people who aren’t diabetic. So it’s important to understand the symptoms of hypoglycemia and if you’re at risk. But let’s take a look at why your body needs sugar in the first place. Need for blood sugar control When we think sugar, we think the fine crystals of sugar or sugar cubes we put in our coffee, tea or baking. But the sugar our body depends on is glucose from the carbohydrates we consume – the natural sugar in fruits, vegetables, dairy and grains, for example. The cells in the body use sugar from carbo Continue reading >>
