What Causes Hypoglycemia

What Causes Hypoglycemia?

Hypo means low and glycemic means blood sugar.

When the sugar goes low, you start to feel dizzy, to be irritable, to crave for sweets, and to be thirsty.

You will start eating a lot of sugar.

When you measure your blood sugar level,  it should be between 80 and 100 of units.

You should only have 1 teaspoon of sugar per gallon of blood.

If you consume a cup of flavored yogurt or a glass of sugar, that would be 38 grams of sugar in 1 small period.

I remember going trick-or-treating and coming home and eating all the candies in one sitting.

That was a major increase in the Fat Storing Hormone.

If you eat large amounts of sugar a few times in a row, it’s going to cause a whiplash to the pancreas, it would overreact, and bring your sugar down too low.

Another cause can be adrenal stress.

Adrenal will turn the protein into sugar when there is too much stress.

The body can only handle 1 teaspoon per gallon, so it has to trigger Fat Storing Hormone to pull it out.

If you start eating too much sugar, eventually, it will turn it into fat.

Hypoglycemia turns to hyperglycemia or high sugar. Your body is starting to see the high sugar toxic and it’s going to block Fat Storing Hormone.

The cells in the liver are going to block it. You may have the high spike of sugar but it won’t allow it in the liver, and that causes the sugar to stay high which causes diabetes.

Most diabetics don’t correct their diet. They just take the medication.

What you need to do is to avoid sugar.
