Adrenaline Low Blood Sugar Nausea

The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more
Is it normal to wake up feeling sick, sweaty, nauseas from low blood sugar if you don't eat enough the night before? Alcohol makes it worse.
No.: If you have diabetes, your insulin needs adjusting. How do you know your blood sugar is low? Did you check it? If yes, and it is indeed low, then you need to go down on your long-acting insulin. Otherwise, it must be related to something else. It could be hangover if its worse with drinking! ...Read more
Can a sudden drop in blood sugar levels cause epinephrine release even if it doesn't drop below 5.Ommol/l?
Yes: This is known as a false hypoglycemic reaction, where a rapid drop of sugar from a high level to a more normal level can cause hypoglycemic symptoms. This typically occurs in diabetics with poor blood sugar control. It can occasionally occur in people who are not diabetic but have reactive hypoglycemia. ...Read more

The possible causes of h, in your case are, too much alcohol, severe illnesses of the liver, such as severe hepatitis, can cause hypoglycemia.

Depends on what drug: Hi. That totally depends on what drug(s) you're being treated with. I'm gonna go out on a limb and presume you're a diabetic. If you're on insulin, it's easy to get hypoglycemic, especially if you're type 1. If you're type 2 on any combination of metformin, a GLP-1 drug, a DPP4 inhibitor, an SGLT2 inhibitor, it's hard to get too low; insulin easy, sulfonylurea drug possible but not super easy. ...Read more
You don't have it: In addition, in my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to you sugar returning to normal. A glucose tolerance test (if you've had one) is not and never will be a valid diagnostic test for hypoglycemia. Low glucose only ocurrs when treating diabetes, cancer, renal/liver disease. ...Read more

Diabetic?: Hi. I assume (hate to do that) that you're diabetic on a drug that can cause hypoglycemia. Treat low blood sugar with sugar! Your doctor treating your diabetes should go over this with you. If it's a scary low, but you can treat yourself, I suggest liquid sugar (juice, sugar soda).
