Diabetes May lead to Hypoglycemia

People with diabetes type 2 are often patients- in- waiting for hypoglycemia, ‘a common
and potentially deadly problem’ in such diabetics. The glucose level at which hypoglycemia
is said to occur varies in most humans; but it is generally clubbed at levels below 3.9
mmol/L (70 mg/dL).
In any person, following long periods of not eating or a bout of exercises, a level below 2.8
mmol/L (50 mg/dL) would constitute onset of a hypoglycemic event.
In newborns hypoglycemia is indicated at a level below 2.2 mmol/L (40 mg/dL) or less than
3.3 mmol/L (60 mg/dL) but only if symptoms are present.


Diabetes May lead to Hypoglycemia

Insulin, sulfonylureas and biguanides which are medications for diabetics are the most
common cause of hypoglycemia. In cases where the diabetic has not eaten well or has
imbibed alcohol or has exercised too much, there is greater risk of hypoglycemia setting in.
Babies, who are otherwise healthy, may suffer a hypoglycemic event if they have not eaten
for hours.
Of course, these are not the only causes of hypo glycaemia. Causes could range from
kidney failure and liver problems to natal metabolic error and C peptide levels in the blood.
Hypoglycemia symptoms come on quickly and may include clumsiness, difficulty with
talking, confusion, and loss of consciousness or seizures and finally, coma. Also, a feeling of
hunger, sweating, shakiness, and weakness may occur.


Diabetes May lead to Hypoglycemia

There are people who show few initial symptoms of hypo glycaemia. Here one must
adhere to frequent routine testing.
The simplest way for a diabetes type 2 patient to prevent hypoglycemia setting in, is to
match his diet with his quantum of exercise; and both, to the medication used.
The immediate treatment for hypo glycaemia is by to ingest simple-sugar high foods or
dextrose or inject glucagon. The danger here is ‘the spike and trough syndrome’.
