What Causes Hypoglycemia

Hypo means low and glycemic means blood sugar.

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

You will start eating a lot of sugar.

When you measure your blood sugar 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 is 38 grams of sugar in 1 small period.

I remembering going trick-or-treating and coming home and eating all the candy and one sitting.

That was a major increase in the insulin.

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

Other 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 insulin 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 insulin.

The cells in the liver is going to block it. You might have the high spike of sugar but it won’t allow it in the liver and causes the sugar stays high which causes diabetes.

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

What you want to do is avoid sugar.
