Could hypoglycemia cause depersonalization/feeling deam like? Non-Diabetic, no other symptoms.

Could hypoglycemia cause depersonalization/feeling deam like? Non-Diabetic, no other symptoms.

Yes: hypoglycemia is a situation in which the blood sugar drops to a suboptimal level to sustain metabolism. The brain is one of the organs whose function solely depends on blood sugar. Hence you will be disoriented confused or hallucinate with hypoglycemia. The body has an inbuilt mechanism to combat this in a health individual.

46 year-old with Graves disease and gluten hypersensitivity, had 30 min of L hemicranial aura-type symptoms and L visual disturbance. Migraine....?

Likely migraine aura, but...: Great textbook description of a classical migraine aura, and indeed in the end, this is most likely the answer. However, in view of first episode, in context of a complicated medical history, I would recommend excluding vascular insufficiency from a different ischemic mechanism. To clarify issues, might have a good ophthalmological exam, do a carotid duplex study, and even consider MRI films of brain. Some blood studies to reassure include sed rate, CRP, fibrinogen, homocysteine, and maybe HgbA1-C and lipids. Statistically, would expect much of above to be negative. If this ever occurs again, can abort process by hyperventilating into a small paper or plastic bag for about 3-4 minutes, but could bring on a nasty headache. Hopefully, my comments will be of relevance. ...Read more
