Does Diarrhea Create Low Blood Sugar
Asian athletic male 26 yrs old. Diarrhea couple times per week. Frequent episodes of dizziness (feels like low blood sugar?). More frequent recently.
Frequent Loose BM may happen if you are not able to digest the food properly. Therefore you need to replenish normal gut bacteria. Add Probiotics daily for 2 weeks. Give rest to your intestine by eating low fiber and clear liquid (BRAT diet).
Did you take Antibiotic treatment sometimes before all these started? Then check for Ab induced Diarrhea.
Weakness and dizziness comes from dehydration also ...Read more
The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. 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

Nausea, diarrhea, no appetite since may. Remeron (mirtazapine) helped but caused weight gain and high blood sugars so I stopped. Have seen GI and gp. What is wrong?
Low blood sugar:
I don't get the question.
If you have diabetes and are on meds you should be able to control your blood sugar - at least increase your blood sugar level.
If you don't have diabetes how do you know you have low blood sugar?
Put this together and you need to go as soon as possible to the nearest Emergency Room and be evaluated.
If you have low blood sugar do not drive - have someone take you! ...Read more
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
Under 65 mg/dL: Blood sugars of less than 65 mg/dl are considered low. ...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). If not scary low, you can do solid sugar (candy, etc). If you're unconscious, have someone give glucagon or call EMTs ...Read more

"That look": Since young kids with diabetes can't express that they feel low blood sugars, many parents of young children with diabetes can identify "that look" when they think the child has low blood sugar. Some will get shaky, pale, sweaty, and stare off. Some get really cranky, tired, and hungry. ...Read more
Are you on insulin?: Hi. Unless you take insulin or have a vanishingly rare genetic syndrome, your "hypoglycemia" is not real, and has nothing to do with blood sugar. Unfortunately, "hypoglycemia" is a very popular self diagnosis, but it is not true hypoglycemia and has nothing to do with your blood sugar. Diabetes can be hereditary, and if treated with insulin, that would be true hypoglycemia. ...Read more
Best to know: Before you try to increase your blood sugar, make sure you know what your blood sugar is. If you are diabetic, then finger stick with your glucose monitor. If you are not diabetic, then go see your doc for labs and exam. Low blood sugars can be dangerous, so proper diagnosis first. Then treatment. Be well. ...Read more
Body functions: Your brain and heart muscle use glucose directly from the blood as their energy source. They have no backup source. If it gets too low you go into a coma (brain doesn't work) and may suffer a seizure. Your heart may also begin to have irregularities in it's beat and malfunction. ...Read more
Cause?: Many causes of hypoglycemia. First thing is to confirm low blood sugars in a lab. If truly low, what is the reason for low blood sugars? Is this reactive hypoglycemia? Fasting hypoglycemia? Adult onset metabolic disorder? Treatment is contingent upon a diagnosis. Please discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
Diabetic diet: A diabetic diet is good for avoiding both high and low blood sugars. Knowledge of carbohydrates and calorie counting is part of diabetic diets. Basically avoid fast carbs, white sugar, refined flour foods, high fat foods. Instead eat smaller meals. Eat more frequently. The goal is to avoid spikes in your metabolism. Okay to check in with your doc. Be well. ...Read more
Weak and Shaky: Most of my patients complain of feeling weak & shaky when their blood glucoses get low. Others complain of a cold sweat; especially if it wakes them up in the middle of the night. Some patients have no symptoms of mild hypoglycemia and this is concerning. Be sure to always carry a rapid acting carbohydrate, such as glucose tablets, with you to treat hypoglycemia. ...Read more
Many symptoms: Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) can cause shakiness, weakness, ravenous appetite, confusion, sweating, increased heart rate, and even passing out. High blood sugar (hyperglycemia) often does not have symptoms until it is very high (over 300), when people can then experience thirst and frequent urination, blurred vision, rapid weight changes, mental changes, and also unconsciousness. ...Read more
Treat low sugar: Hi. If the person is conscious and can safely take things by mouth, liquid sugar (juice - can even ADD sugar) is the fastest. If unconscious, don't give anything by mouth; call paramedics. All my patients on insulin have glucagon at home, so if they can't safely be treated by mouth, family/friends can give glucagon and not have to call paramedics. Talk with your mom's doctor about hypoglycemia. ...Read more
