Low Blood Sugar Signs to Look Out For

November 17th, 2017 The Loved Ones Desk Uncategorized

When it comes to your health, your body has a way of letting you know something is not quite right. Sometimes those signs are easy to spot, and other times they can be overlooked, and when it comes to your blood sugar, several very subtle symptoms could be a sign that something isn’t right. So here are few things to look for if you think you might be suffering from low blood sugar. 

Extreme Hunger

If you are suddenly noticing a constant hunger that just can’t be satisfied, it’s your bodies way of telling you that you are low on glucose. You’ll want to speak with your doctor to see how to get your sugar back to a healthy level.

Anxiety

A sudden rush of adrenaline can also be a sign your sugar may be low. When your glucose levels drop too low, your adrenal glands receive a signal to release epinephrine. Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline) will signal your liver to make more sugar, leaving you with a sudden burst of anxiety.

Restlessness and Night Sweats

Have you been waking up confused, and covered in sweat? Your sugar could be dropping throughout the night. One way to avoid it would be to try and eat a healthy snack right before you go to bed to keep your sugar level longer. 

Vision Issues

Blood sugar levels can also play a big part in your eye health. Abnormal blood sugar can often lead to blurry or even double vision. Beyond an eye exam, you’ll want to inform your physician of these issues so they can keep note of all your symptoms.
