What is low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)?

Information for caregivers: managing low blood sugar in people with  diabetes - Diabetes Care Community

Hypo glycaemia is a condition wherein blood sugar levels are too low. This condition affects a number of diabetic people when their bodies do not have enough glucose to use as energy. Hypoglycemia is commonly the result of taking too much of the medication/s prescribed to treat diabetes, eating less than expected, exercising more than normal or skipping meals.

Some of the symptoms of hypoglycemia include:

  • A pale face

  • Unexplained fatigue

  • Hunger

  • Excessive perspiration

  • Skin tingling

  • Headache

  • Trembling in hands and other body parts

  • Blurry vision

  • Rapid heart rate

The key to treating low blood sugar is to eat something rich in carbohydrates such as a granola bar, fruit, fruit juice or cookies if you begin to show any of the above-mentioned symptoms. Those who have low blood sugar are often aware of this and will tend to carry something to eat on them in case of a hyperglycemic episode.
