What Do Diabetics Suffer From If They Get Low Blood Glucose Levels Caused By Excess Insulin
If you're diabetic (type 2) on insulin and have a hypo how much glucose or dextrose is required in order to increase blood sugar levels by 1 mmol?
Hypoglycemia: There is no precise answer. It depends on how much Insulin you took, what you ate, how fast the glucose falls, etc. If you have a severe reaction, you need to eat, but sometimes people with diabetes take in too much glucose, causing wide swings in blood glucose when in fact only a little glucose is needed. Glucose tablets give you a measured amount of sugar which you can regulate. ...Read more

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
What are the recommended blood sugar levels and when do you go on insulin if diagnosed with gestational diabetes?
Pre or type 2 DM: The most common cause of high Insulin levels and low blood sugars in adults is Insulin resistance/hyperinsulinemia. Those with pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes have high Insulin levels to compensate for the body's resistance. However, the body loses its ability to guage how much Insulin one needs and can overshoot to cause low blood sugar. Please discuss with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
