In brief: Hypoglycemia

Hello. when our body is resting we convert sugar to fat.
But when we dont eat normally body tries to convert fat to sugar to help with brain as brain uses glucose. Sometimes when body is in stress, we end up utilizing more sugar than body can make especially when fasting and thats when sugars drop.
