Hypoglycemia/ Low Blood Sugars

Hypoglycemia, also known as low blood sugar, is when blood sugar decreases to below normal levels. This may result in a variety of symptoms including clumsiness, trouble talking, confusion, loss of consciousness, seizures, or death. A feeling of hunger, sweating, shakiness, and weakness may also be present. The most common cause of hypoglycemia is medications used to treat diabetes mellitus such as insulin, sulfonylureas, and biguanides. Risk is greater in diabetics who have eaten less than usual, exercised more than usual, or have drunk alcohol. Low blood sugar may occur in babies who are otherwise healthy who have not eaten for a few hours. Hypoglycemia may result in death if not treated immediately.
