Hypoglycemia Facts

Low blood sugar is most common in people who use insulin or take certain tablets to reduce high blood sugar. This is because things like unplanned physical activity, eating meals later than usual, or drinking too much alcohol can mean that you need less insulin than you thought, causing your blood sugar to drop very low.

Signs that your blood sugar is too low may include:

Racing pulse

Cold sweat

Pale face


Feeling incredibly hungry

Shivering, feeling weak in the knees

Feeling restless, nervous or anxious

Difficulty concentrating, confusion

The signs of hypoglycemia not only depend on the blood sugar level, but also vary from person to person.  Mild hypoglycemia does not usually have any harmful effects. But it is important to react quickly and eat or drink a fast acting carbohydrate(juice and jelly sweets).

Do symptoms always occur before Hypoglycemia?

Glucagon for Emergencies

Glucagon is the treatment of choice if someone with diabetes is unconscious or unable to swallow.

Ask your health care provider for a prescription for Glucagon or GlucaGen and for instructions on how to use it. Instruct your family members or friends on how to use this in an emergency and on how to access the emergency response team.
