What Are the Symptoms of Hypoglycaemia
Hypoglycemic symptoms and manifestations can be divided into those produced by the counter regulatory hormones (epinephrine/adrenaline and glucagon) triggered by the falling glucose, the neuroglycopenic effects produced by the reduced energy delivery to the brain and the fatigue from reduced energy delivery to the body.
- feeling of warmth,
- Dilated pupils (mydriasis),
- feeling of numbness “pins and needles” (parasthaesia).
- abdominal discomfort,
Neuroglycopenic manifestations – reduced energy delivery to the brain
- Foggy brain,
- impaired judgment,
- nonspecific dysphoria,
- personality change,
- emotional liability,
- poor quality sleep,
- automatic behavior,
- also known as automatism,
- sometimes mistaken for “drunkenness”,
- focal or general motor deficit,
- “glassy” look,
- double vision,
- difficulty speaking,
- slurred speech,
- abnormal breathing,
- generalized or focal seizures
These symptoms are very similar to being drunk with alcohol – which results again in poor energy delivery to the brain.
Poor energy delivery to the body
- poor stamina,
- blurred vision and many others!
