Glucose comes from the food you eat and is also made in your liver and muscles. Your blood carries the glucose to all the cells in your body. Insulin is a chemical (a hormone) made by the pancreas. The pancreas releases insulin into the blood. Insulin helps the glucose from...

A: No. do not go back for more sugar. low blood sugar means that you probably get pretty tired feeling around 2 p.m. every day, for one thing. This is a good time for you to have a banana. You may awaken grouchy. When you feel grouchy for no reason, have a spoon full of peanut butter to help you feel ''nicer''. Hypoglycemia is what you can look up on the web. It will help you to understand that this is easily taken care of with your food intake. Eating 6 small meals or snacks a day will help you, a LOT.

If you pass out from low blood sugar?

A: If someone has low blood sugar, chances are, they are diabetic. Call 911 first thing. But do not sit around and piddle on your butt waiting because there is a time when the body goes too long without sugar (I''d say within 4 minutes of passing out) and you can die. You would get something sweet and give it to them. HOWEVER, do not give them any liquids...they will aspirate it. A diabetic that is on insulin should ALWAYS CARRY Glucagon. Cake frosting, for example, is a good thing to use. Just put it into the sides of their mouth (not a whole lot) and wait until they regain consciousness. Diabetic people need to carry that with them at all times. As a diabetic, I have a tube of cake frosting...

Keep in mind orange juice works temporarily, but if you dont eat afterwards it can go back down again. If someone has a low blood sugar if they are type1 diabetic then they can take syringe...

I think you should evaluate with a doctor to be sure you''re not hypoglycemic (you could have BS issues w/o necessarily being diabetic), but I wouldn''t be terribly alarmed about...
