What Is Diabetic Hypoglycemia?

Q:
What is diabetic hypoglycemia?

A:
Diabetic hypoglycemia is a low blood glucose level occurring in people with diabetes mellitus. It is one of the most common types of hypoglycemia seen in emergency departments and hospitals.

When a treatment to lower the elevated blood glucose of diabetes inaccurately matches the body’s physiological need, hypoglycemia thus occurs, and therefore causes the glucose to fall to a below-normal level.

Several factors can cause diabetic hypoglycemia, including taking too much insulin or other diabetes medications, skipping a meal, or exercising harder than usual.

Pay attention to early warning signs, so you can treat low blood sugar promptly.

Check more details with doctors if necessary.
