Low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia, is a common condition that can be caused by many factors. It’s important to be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of low blood sugar so you can quickly provide assistance when needed.
In this blog post, we will discuss four signs that may indicate low blood sugar:
The first sign of low blood sugar is dizziness.
This can be one of the more dangerous signs to recognize as it may lead to falls and drops in blood pressure, which could result in a seizure or coma.
You should always have someone with you when checking for this symptom so they can support you from behind if needed.
There are two other symptoms that often go hand-in-hand: hunger and irritability.
These both arise because glucose levels drop quickly after eating, meaning your stomach feels empty even though there’s still food in there (due to delayed gastric emptying).
Your decreased need for food means that any small amount of insulin will make you feel hungry again soon enough; meanwhile, increased sensitivity at nerve endings due.
