What Is Hypoglycemia?
Hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, refers to a too low level of glucose/sugar in the blood stream. Glucose levels should be between 4-6 mmol/l before meals and less than 8 mmol/l after meals.
Symptoms of hypoglycemia include trembling, clammy skin, palpitations, anxiety, hunger and irritability. However, when your brain remains deprived of glucose, other symptoms such as difficulty in thinking, irritability, fatigue, nausea, extreme hunger, confusion, headache, seizures and even coma, can follow.
