Hypoglycemia Symptoms, Hypoglycemia is characterized by the central nervous system (CNS) and a simultaneous blood glucose level ≤ 50 mg/dL and Symptoms are resolved within minutes following glucose administration. Hypoglycemia is a medical emergency because the CNS has an absolute requirement for a continuous supply of bloodborne glucose to serve as a metabolic fuel. Therefore, it is not surprising that the body has multiple overlapping mechanisms to prevent correct hypoglycemia. The most important hormone changes in combating hypoglycemia are increased secretion of glucagon and catecholamines, combined with decreased insulin secretion.
Symptoms of Hypoglycemia:
The symptoms of hypoglycemia are divided into two categories: (neurogenic, and autonomies).
- Aberrant behavior or coma
- Sweating tremor
- Hunger and Imitability
- Fast heartbeat
Causes of Hypoglycemia:
Common causes of diabetic hypoglycemia include:
- Taking too much insulin and diabetic medications
- Not eating enough
- Postponing or skipping a meal or snack
- Drinking Alcohol
Types of Hypoglycemia:
Hypoglycemia may be divided into four types:
- Insulin Induced
- Postprandial hypoglycemia
- Fasting hypoglycemia
- Alcohol-related hypoglycemia
It occurs frequently in patients with diabetes who are receiving insulin treatment mild hypoglycemia is fully conscious patients are treat by oral.
Low glucose level during fasting is rare but likely present as a serious medical problem that tends to produce neuroglycopenic symptoms.
Post Prandial hypoglycemia:
It is caused by an exaggerated insulin release following a meal, prompting transient with mild adrenergic Syndromes.
