Types

In diabetes the main causes of hypoglycaemia are the result of an imbalance of too much medication for carbohydrate eaten. Other factors such as exercise, alcohol and delayed or missed meals can increase the risk of hypoglycemia.

Blood Glucose Levels

A lack of glucose in the blood can leaves the brain and body starved of fuel which can cause a variety of symptoms of hypoglycemia. The signs of hypoglycemia can vary from person to person and can also vary from time to time.

Managing

Diagnosis of hypogycemia refers to the diagnosis of non-diabetic conditions that cause regular episodes of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).

Treating

For people at risk of hypoglycemia, having full hypo awareness is beneficial, allowing you to act on the signs of hypoglycemia before blood glucose levels become potentially serious. It is possible to both lose and regain hypo awareness.
