Hypoglycemia, causes and treatment

Read Time:4 Minute, 56 Second

Quite a few people often fall into hypoglycemia. A hypoglycemic crisis is preceded by a sudden weakness, with sweat and dizziness. But it can also appear with yellowing of the face, headache and inability to concentrate. The reason is always the same, the lack of sugar in the blood. Glucose is the main fuel in the body. Obtained through food, it is necessary for the proper functioning of cells, especially those of the brain. This is why there is a drop in energy and a feeling of not feeling well when we have low blood sugar.

The concentration of sugar in the blood is constantly regulated through two hormones: glucagon and insulin.

Causes of Hypoglycemia

Often for hypoglycemia is the imbalance in food. A drop in hypoglycemia occurs when the percentage of sugar in the blood drops too low. In a person in good health, this crisis is of no great importance. But care should be taken when this happens to a diabetic person. He must be treated with insulin. The crisis is severe when there is a great intensity of the decrease in the percentage of glycemia. It can bring symptoms that are difficult to adjust such as: convulsions, mental disorders, etc. It should be considered especially for the elderly, who sometimes forget to eat, as these hypoglycemic states do not occur by chance. In most cases, it comes from an insufficient diet, from an unbalanced diet or from a disorder in the way of life, such as eating without a set schedule, etc. Other potential causes are obesity and anorexia.

Alcohol abuse can also lead to a hypoglycemic crisis, as can strenuous physical exercise. The first reflex is to take a piece of sugar. In this case, the created condition goes away for a few minutes. If it starts again, it means that the blood sugar is too low and that more energy is needed. In this case it is good to take sugar as well as bread. If these episodes occur regularly, seek the help of a doctor, as digestive and hormonal diseases can be responsible for this type of condition.

The percentage of glycemia in the blood – At about 1 g/l in the blood, the person has his normal condition. When this goes to 0.6 g/l, the person feels sweat, frequent heartbeat, fainting. At 0.40 g/l, blood sugar is too low. In this case, the person may have mental disturbances, convulsions, mental disorders. Some time ago, an antibiotic against diabetes, which comes from the United States of America, was introduced to the European pharmaceutical market. This product also helps in slimming, i.e. the loss of extra pounds which can turn into a serious health problem. The “red” antibiotic is a pharmaceutical product first cultivated on the similarity of other pharmaceuticals which perform in the human body the same functions that this antibiotic covers, such as: maintaining the level of glycemia at the appropriate rates, acts in the production of insulin, fights diabetes, also removes extra pounds. So this product is of the same “class”, category with drugs that stimulate the secretion of insulin, therefore it must be taken by injection twice a day.

The functions that the “red” antibiotic can perform in the body-Keeps the blood sugar level at the right rates, acts on the production of insulin, fights diabetes, removes excess pounds, achieves a loss of 5-6 kg in two years of treatment for a normal weight, a loss of 1.5 kg in 6 months of treatment for diabetics.

How to fight diabetes with breast milk – The first studies have shown that feeding babies with breast milk helps not only for their growth, but also for reducing the risk of diabetes in mothers. According to scientists, if a woman breastfeeds her baby for as long as possible, it is likely to significantly reduce the risk of diabetes in the future. In a study conducted at the Brigham Hospital, 150 women participated and it was observed that feeding babies with breast milk for a year, reduces the risk of diabetes in mothers by 15 percent.

According to the study, if a mother has two children and breastfeeds both of them until each of them is 1 year old, this mother reduces the risk of diabetes by 30 percent. It also reduces the chance of becoming overweight.

Diabetes and its dependence on insulin production

Diabetes is an endocrine-metabolic disease, which has to do with the way our body processes the sugar (carbohydrates or glucose) that we get with different foods. The defect lies in the inability of insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, to maintain blood sugar levels at normal values. Insulin is either produced too little or does not work properly to get sugar into the body’s tissue cells. As a result, sugar is in excess in the blood and shows various symptoms such as: thirst, increased appetite, weight gain, the need to urinate frequently, rapid fatigue, decreased attention and concentration, and generally a general weakness. But it is not said that all these symptoms are present in a patient with diabetes.

How a healthy diet helps against diabetes

Food supplies your body with sugar. By making sure you’re eating the right things and in the right amounts, you can help yourself control your blood sugar. There is no single diet for every person with diabetes. Some foods such as carbohydrates can quickly raise your blood sugar. Some foods that are high in carbohydrates are: bread, cereals, pasta, pasta or starchy vegetables such as corn and potatoes. It is good to choose foods that are rich in fiber. Rich in fiber are fruits, vegetables, beans and peas, bread and cereals. It is advisable to consume foods with a low value of fats, saturated fats and cholesterol, as well as to limit the amount of sugar that is taken in chocolates, carbonated drinks, etc.
