Treating Low Blood Sugar


Low blood sugar called hypoglycaemia happens when the glucose or sugar in your blood drops below normal levels or below the target range set by your doctor.

Hypoglycemia may be caused by taking too much insulin or taking too much medication that raises insulin levels, not eating enough food or waiting too long between meals, exercising too much, or drinking too much alcohol.

Each person’s reaction to low blood sugar is different. You need to know your own signs and symptoms. Common symptoms of hypoglycaemia or low blood sugar include feeling shaky or dizzy, feeling moody or nervous, sweating, hunger, headache, anxiety, confusion, blurred vision and weakness.
