Hypoglycemia causes in adults

Common Questions and Answers about Hypoglycemia causes in adults


Avatar_n_tn As you probably know hypoglycemia results when a person releases too much insulin in the presence of carbohydrates. That excess insulin is results in blood sugar that's too low and the physical symptoms you feel. DIabetics are taught to treat low blood sugar with some rapid acting carbos -- such as 15gm of carbo in the form glucose tabs/gel, juice, regular soda (NOT chocolate; it's too slow to help).
Avatar_m_tn Here are the facts, you missed two of them. Diabetes does NOT "refers specifically to a disfunction that causes high-blood sugar." There are three class types of diabetes: Type 1 - Hypoglycemia [low glucose] Type 2 - Hyperglycemia [high glucose] Type 1.5 - aka LADA [Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults] "Dabetics, both type 1 and type 2 can have hypoglycemic episodes.
Avatar_f_tn I also have extreme irritability, sadness, and fatigue that week. In general, it seems to always be in the 60s in the morning and in the 50s or 60s before I eat dinner (lunch is around 12 or 1, dinner around 6 or 7). It seems like my personality has changed a little bit in the past few weeks - I have been impatient, moody, melancholy, extremely tired & irritable, unmotivated, basically miserable.
5150207_tn?1374215160 almost passing out, it hit me that I hadn't eaten anything in almost a week, with the exception of drinking fluids. I've always been comfortable with my weight. I am tall and don't show my weight. I'm 5'11", and 169lbs never showed much. I stood on my scales after getting the girls on the bus and it showed 145lbs. I was in total shock! I've been trying to put the weight back on, but I still have no desire for food. Any suggestions for getting my appetite back?
568322_tn?1370169040 Family Practice News April 15 2007 WASHINGTON -- Caffeine intake appears to exaggerate post-meal insulin resistance in prediabetic adults who regularly drink several cups of coffee each day, according to preliminary results of a randomized, double-blind, crossover study of 50 individuals. The results "suggest that caffeine consumption promotes the development of type 2 diabetes in those people who are at greatest risk for this disease," James D. Lane, Ph.D.
Avatar_f_tn Most tumors causing hypoglycemia by mechanisms other than insulin excess occur in adults.
Avatar_n_tn Tumors in cerebellum could result in tremors in both infants and adults. Cerebral palsy, which results due to lack of oxygen at birth, could cause tremors and other involuntary movements. Epilepsy and hypoglycemia in infant are other possible causes. Consult a pediatric neurologist with your concerns and a detailed evaluation is warranted. Hope this helps. Take care.

1469903_tn?1286650297 the dose is adjusted for weight only in children.[2] The dose should be drunk within 5 minutes. • A variant is often used in pregnancy to screen for gestational diabetes, with a screening test of 50 grams over one hour. If elevated, this is followed with a test of 100 grams over three hours. Blood is drawn at intervals for measurement of glucose (blood sugar), and sometimes insulin levels. The intervals and number of samples vary according to the purpose of the test.
Avatar_n_tn In adults deficiency of vit D causes osteomalacia in which softening of bones occurs.Take abundant amount of sunshine(approx 5-10 min of sunshine)everyday for replenishing the vit D deficiency. Osteomalacia is treated by eating 2,500 IU per day of vitamin D for about three months. Sheehan syndrome can cause these symptoms.A CT head to see the condition of pituitary will be the best.
Avatar_n_tn Hominis pathogen variety is one commonly found in the genital and urinary tracts of adults that can affect joints and tendons as well. Make sure you do a mineral analysis (mineral hair analysis is more accurate than blood tests usually) for any mineral deficiencies. Also check thoroughly for any other possible nutritional deficiencies, as mentioned in Red_Star's reply.
Avatar_f_tn I hope you have supportive adults you can talk with about your problems, It can be difficult for a young lady growing up in the world today
Avatar_n_tn As a volunteer for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, I cannot tell you how it breaks my heart when teenagers or young adults in their 20's write to us to tell us of their vision problems or neuropathy or gastroparesis that makes it impossible for them to eat without nausea. No temporary pleasure is worth risking this. None. As for alcohol, what the person who wrote the answer to your question wrote is true.
Avatar_f_tn Commonly, sinus bradycardia is an incidental finding in otherwise healthy individuals, particularly in young adults or sleeping patients. Other causes of sinus bradycardia are related to increased vagal tone. Physiologic causes of increased vagal tone include the bradycardia seen even in athletes.
1692515_tn?1306273648 I have been told my mother that at 2 years old I put a bobbie pin in an electrical outlet and she had to get a mop to dislodge me. My question is could my fibromyalgia, reoccuring shingles, and electric shock feeling be caused by this and what can be done to stop it.
Avatar_f_tn But the liver usually kicks in and produces glucose before this happens. And it usually causes the blood sugar level to rise substantially. I have never heard of anyone dying because of a bad hypo. The dangers of hypoglyceamia are often over-dramatised.I wouldn't get too worried if I were you. If she is very active, test her blood sugar every now and again. And avoid high-carb meals.
Avatar_f_tn An adenoma causes the pituitary gland to make too much of the hormone adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), which in turn causes the adrenal glands to make too much cortisol. * ACTH can be made by other conditions, such as cancer of the lung. This high ACTH level causes the adrenal glands to make more cortisol. * The adrenal gland can develop tumors (benign or cancerous) that make cortisol and cause Cushing's syndrome.
Avatar_m_tn A glass of milk or a fruit before bedtime will prevent hypoglycemia. Other causes can be cluster headache and brain tumors. Patients with cluster headache are known to frequently wake up from sleep with severe debilitating headache. This requires further evaluation. Please consult a doctor as soon as possible. Take care!
Avatar_m_tn Maria, your symptoms sound like Multiple Schlerosis to me. It looks different in teenagers than it does in adults, and your symptoms seem pretty classic. The good news with MS is there are a LOT of new medications and new research that makes the outcome much brighter. Does this article sound like you? http://www.livestrong.
Avatar_m_tn Unlike generalized hyperhidrosis, it usually begins in adolescence, but can also manifest in childhood or even in infancy.
584583_tn?1218256497 Because of salt loss, a craving for salty foods also is common. Hypoglycemia, or low blood glucose, is more severe in children than in adults. In women, menstrual periods may become irregular or stop. Because the symptoms progress slowly, they are usually ignored until a stressful event like an illness or an accident causes them to become worse. This is called an addisonian crisis, or acute adrenal insufficiency.

Avatar_n_tn Although it can occur at any age and in both genders, CIDP is more common in young adults, and in men more so than women. It often presents with symptoms that include tingling or numbness (beginning in the toes and fingers), weakness of the arms and legs, loss of deep tendon reflexes (areflexia), fatigue, and abnormal sensations.
Avatar_n_tn However, overall differences in alcoholic liver disease have been noted in various studies. One study of 42,862 US adults showed differences in drinking patterns among different races. Whites were the most likely to drink, but blacks had the highest volume of intake and frequency of heavy drinking. Another study showed a higher rate of cirrhosis among blacks. Sex Women develop more severe alcoholic liver disease (ALD) more quickly and at lower doses of alcohol than men.
Avatar_m_tn Also called infectious mononucleosis. It occurs most commonly in adolescents and young adults, where it is characterized by fever, sore throat, muscle soreness,lymph node enlargement and fatigue.But in this the WBC count is usually elevated.Can be confirmed by monospot test and Epstein-Barr virus antigen by immunofluorescence tests. Low WBC count shows some viral infections, immunodeficiency states, and bone marrow failure.
523707_tn?1212472541 Dear Terry, This is a shot in the dark, but has your mother ever been testes for what they call "Shadow Diabetes?" There is another type of diabetes called LADA (Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults) that will put on sudden edema for "no reason." I would suggest your mother see an endocrinologist. This type of doctor handles hormones, and glands, and all sorts fo things that can cause this sudden onset of fluid retention. I also would have her common bile duct checked.
Avatar_n_tn Think about the way children react to high sugar diets. In adults it affects our bodies more on a physiological level. It is less noticeable but sugar can cause hyper activity. I ate foods which did not store fat or high energy such as veggies (having fatty foods and sugars can cause your body to react like a see-saw "up and down, up and down")I slept on time even on the nites where I was struggling to sleep.

Avatar_f_tn This laxative herb causes the loss of potassium and other minerals, which over time can result in a loss of muscle tone of the intestine and diminished effectiveness. Frequent use may cause irreversible damage. Large doses of aloe have caused bloody diarrhea, kidney damage, and even death. The urine may take on a reddish color after taking aloe latex.
Avatar_m_tn Intake of one of the branched-chain amino acids, leucine, has been reported to lower blood sugar in infants with a condition called idiopathic hypoglycemia. This term means they have low blood sugar, but the cause is unknown. Some research suggests leucine causes the pancreas to release insulin, and this lowers blood sugar. Surgery: Branched-chain amino acids might affect blood sugar levels, and this might interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgery.
