Hypoglycaemia

Hypoglycaemia is low blood sugar.  Normally, the body maintains blood sugar levels within a narrow range through the work of several glands and their hormones.  When these finely balanced control mechanisms are disrupted, hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) or diabetes (high blood sugar) may result.  Normally, as food is digested, levels of bloods sugar rise gradually, signalling the pancreas to secrete insulin, a hormone which lowers blood sugar levels by increasing the rate at which our cells recognise glucose (blood sugar) and lets it into the cells themselves.

When blood sugar levels drop (eg overnight), or because our energy needs are increased (eg exercise), another hormone is released by the pancreas called glucagon.  Glucagon stimulates the release of glucose that has been stored in the liver and muscles whenever our blood sugar drops.  A rapid drop in blood sugar can be caused by anger, fright or stress, and this stimulates the adrenals to release adrenaline (the fight-or-flight hormone) so that stored glucose is broken down quickly and released into the bloodstream for emergency needs.    The term ‘Syndrome X’ has been coined to describe changes in blood sugar levels, leading to hypoglycaemia, excessive insulin secretion, and glucose intolerance, followed by diminished insulin sensitivity, which in turn leads to high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels, obesity, and ultimately to type II diabetes.  In hypoglycaemia, the brain is the first organ affected as almost all of the energy used by the brain is supplied by glucose.  Mental symptoms can include headache, depression, anxiety, irritability, confusion, bizarre behaviour, and convulsions.
