Hypoglycaemia (also spelt hypoglycemia), or a "Hypo" is a medical condition characterised by low blood sugar or low blood glucose. This occurs when the level of glucose, the body's main source of energy we typically get from food and drinks, in your blood drops below normal.
The optimal blood glucose ratio often varies between individuals, however the symptoms of hypoglycaemia occur in many people when blood sugar levels are below 4 mmol/L. As a result of differences in our physiology, this number differs from person to person.
Although hypoglycaemia is caused by a drop in your blood glucose levels, there are several reasons why this may happen. The most common of these is a side effect of insuln or other types of medicines used to treat diabetes
The symptoms of hypoglycaemia typically come on quickly and may range from mild to moderate to severe, depending on how low your blood glucose level gets.Symptoms include:
- Insatiable hunger
- Blurred vision
- Headaches & feeling light-headed
- Pale, cold, or clammy skin
- Confusion or disorientation
- Feeling weak, sleepy, or tired
How to treat a Hypo:
For those managing diabetes, Lift Juice Shots can be used as an immediate treatment for hypoglycemia and to help prevent hypos.
To treat hypoglycaemia, drink one 60ml shot. Each shot contains 15g of glucose - perfect during a hypo. It's recommended that you take 15g of glucose based carbohydrates and wait 15 minutes before retesting your blood glucose levels. Alternatively Lift Chewable tablets are also available as a great hypo treatment. Each of these tabs contain 3.7g of glucose.
