When the body senses a low blood sugar
, safety mechanisms kick in to begin to raise the blood sugar. Adrenalin is secreted to block the effect of Insulin
and to produce sugar from glycogen stored in the liver. Counter regualtory hormones are secreted to raise blood sugar. One may feel jittery, drunk, confused, hungry, sweaty, heart
pounding, weak, and sleepy.
Treatment is dictated by cause.
