Q: 

What are the symptoms of low sugar levels?

A: low blood sugar is called ''Hypoglycemia'' in medical terminology. The symptoms are feeling sweaty, light headed, numbness in limbs (I feel these symptoms especially when I stand up after sitting for a considerable period of time), unusually sleepy, suddenly increased anxiety (increased heart beat) and sleepiness.. These are the most commonly felt symptoms. I am sharing this because these are my own experiences and I found the problem after consulting doctor (I am non-diabetic).

Q: 

low blood pressure or low sugar level?

A: Hi Joost: Sounds more like low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) than low blood pressure. Many people suffer from a condition known as rebound hypoglycemia. What happens is that once you eat a meal with a significant amount of carbohydrates your pancreas secretes insulin which lowers your blood glucose levels. The key to dealing with this is to eat meals with a larger amount of protein and less simple carbs. The protein has a lesser effect on the blood glucose and pancreas. I have the same problem and have resorted to eating more protein in the morning and carry a small bag of peanuts with me which does the trick nicely. Also, caffeine makes the situation worse.

Q: 

Can diabetes cause severe tiredness? Does it matter if it''s high or low sugar level to cause tiredness?

A: Diabetes can contribute to a great deal of metabolic stress and instability, thus taxing your bodies? regulatory systems, and it is not uncommon to experience fatigue and low energy levels when the body is unable to get the nutrients it needs from food, due to insufficient insulin or a nutrient deficient diet. When blood glucose levels are under excellent control, however, and you are able to be somewhat active, your energy levels increase and most people find they feel GREAT. Poorly controlled blood glucose, on the other hand, often contributes to generalized fatigue and lack of zest for life. . . And it is not uncommon for people to come back to the office after a week of receiving...


Q: 

19 year old daughter, 32 pound weight loss, low sugar level

A: Hi Tinker3168, I would be quite concerned about a glucose level of 35. Anything less than 50 is suspicious. There are several other hormonal tests that should be evaluated. low blood sugars such as this can indicate a hormone deficiency such as a growth hormone deficiency, cortisol deficiency or possibly a hyperinsulin state. I would recommend she see an endocrinologist for further evaluation. It may be necessary to do a fasting glucose evaluation where the patient is kept without eating to see if the blood sugars drop. The hard part about these types of diseases is that the labs really need to be drawn when the blood sugar is low so it is important the evaluation...
