What is Hypoglycemia?
Our bodies require glucose as a main energy source. Pumping through the bloodstream, glucose supplies the body’s trillion cells with energy. Just as a car starts to putter out as gas runs out, the body reacts with a number of unpleasant symptoms when glucose levels become low.
Hypoglycemia is the medical term used to describe low blood sugar levels and the symptoms that follow. Rather than an actual disease itself, Hypoglycemia is a syndrome which is indicative of another health problem, and while it is most commonly associated with diabetes, there are a number of other conditions that can result in low blood sugar levels.
