How to stop hypoglycemia?

Are you tired of feeling dizzy, shaky and sweaty all the time? Do people often mistake your hypoglycemic symptoms for an earthquake? Fear not, my hungry friend. In this guide, I’ll spill the beans on how to stop hypoglycemia from ruining your day.

What is Hypoglycemia?

Hypoglycemia is a fancy word that means low blood sugar levels. Your brain needs glucose to work properly. When there isn’t enough glucose in your blood, things can get out of whack faster than a one-legged table at a picnic.

What Causes Hypoglycemia?

Several factors can cause hypoglycemia:

  • Poor Diet Habits
  • Skipping Meals
  • Strenuous Exercise
  • Diabetes Medications

Symptoms of Hypoglycemia

The following signs may indicate that you’re dealing with low blood sugar:

  1. Shakiness
  2. Sweating
  3. Hunger Pangs
  4. Irritability or Nervousness
  5. Fatigue (so tired)
  6. Confusion
  7. Fainting

Prevention Tips

Eat Healthy Stuff More Often (nom nom)

Eating frequent healthy meals will help maintain stable glucose levels throughout the day.

Whole Grains are Your Bestie

Whole grains have fiber which regulates digestion rates preventing spikes in insulin release followed by crashes.

Keep the Goodies Close (winks)

Make sure to keep snacks around so when hunger pangs kick in; they won’t reach Defcon Level 10!

Choose Low GI Snacks

Low glycemic index snacks break down slowly providing sustained fuel through digestive absorption rather than rapid emptying leading towards sudden drops during digestion resulting in hypoglycaemic attacks!

High Protein & Fibre Snacks)

Protein and fiber-rich snacks help regulate glucose spikes caused by a high intake of carbohydrates quickly metabolizing.

Get Moving (exercise, exercise)

Exercise promotes good circulation; it’s all about that flow. This helps with insulin regulation leading to stabilized blood sugar levels.

Go for Walks More Often

Going for walks may seem babyish; however, it has many benefits when done regularly like helping your body maintain glucose levels, preventing drastic changes in the blood-sugar game!

Consider Medication Changes (meds)

If you’re one of those people dealing with hypoglycemia due to diabetic medication with adverse effects on glucose levels – have a chat with your medical practitioner!

The Quick Fix: When Your Stomach is Screaming

Sometimes despite being mindful of our habits we might find ourselves experiencing symptoms associated with low blood sugar. If this happens follow these immediate steps:

  1. Test Blood Glucose Levels.
  2. Consume Carbohydrates found in sweet juices such as orange or apple juice which contain simple sugars{^1}. Caffeinated drinks should be avoided but water intake should still persist.
  3. Follow up snack consumption within 30 minutes {^2}!

In Conclusion

Hypoglycemia can be controlled easily than balancing walking and chewing gum concurrently — both are possible though at different times — so put down that glazed doughnut roll you’ve been hoarding from coworkers (we know who we are). Remember the pros (good health) far outweigh nerf matches during office hours due to hypogycaemic attacks!
