Is Hypoglicemia The Same As Diabetes And What Causes It
Opposites: Diabetes is having too much sugar in your blood due to either not making enough Insulin (type i) or your cells not responding to Insulin (type ii).

I don't have diabetes but i get all the symptoms of hypoglycemia few times a week , when i eat something sweet the symptoms go away , what causes this?

Get evaluated: My recommendation is to get evaluated for this. You are right symptoms of hypoglycemia tend to get better after taking glucose in any form( food, tabs, etc).

Probably not: Diabetics are prone to experience episodes of hypoglycemia either due to medications or the somogyi effect. So it would be useful to check for diabetes if you have hypoglycemia. There is no good evidence to my knowledge that shows a causative role of hypoglycemia in the development of diabetes. More likely, an existing diabetic will get hypoglycemia, not the other way around. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
