What can cause hypoglycemia?

4 things. People tend to have a genetic predisposition to having it but the 4 things i found that make it worse are: 1. Eating sugar 2. Not eating often enough 3. Not eating protein often enough 4. Food sensitivities.
Hypoglycemia. Only exists if you have diabetes and are on an incorrect dose of medication. Otherwise, there is no such thing as hypoglycemia in the absence of end-stage cancer, kidney or liver disease, or prior stomach or GI surgery. The diagnosis of hypoglycemia is made frequently and incorrectly in many people. It is not really hypoglycemia, and not dangerous but a normal body reaction if you're obese.

Why do my hands feel tingly all of a sudden? What can cause these symptoms besides hypoglycemia?

Hyperventilation. Sometimes breathing 'too much' = hyperventilation makes the hands and feet tingle. This should be on both sides of the body equally in most cases.

If the tingling is just on one side, think TIA (emergency) or pinched nerve. Read more...
