The best treatment for hypoglycemia is very simple, ‘eat good food’. Food that is high in protein and low in carbohydrates is best. The carbs won’t trigger more insulin to be released and the protein will hold your blood sugar steady.
Hypoglycemia can be a life threatening situation if left untreated. Seizures, unconsciousness, coma and death can occur if your blood sugar goes too low. The normal range for blood sugars is between 70 and 110mg/dl. If you fall below this mark, it may be dangerous.
You may experience blurred vision or get a little shaky if you need to eat, do not hesitate as these early symptoms are telling you to eat something, because your blood sugar needs to come up. When it comes to blood sugar, things could go worse if you fail to heed the early symptoms.
Here are some tips for personal treatment for hypoglycemia.
Change diet. Replace high carb and over processed foods with some high protein, low carbs meal prepared by you. Learn to cook if you can’t. Get a cookbook and follow the recipes thoroughly.
Fresh foods are best and there is so much variety. Get creative. Try new things, look for new recipes online and even get good enough to create your own.
Read labels of products before buying. I decided long ago that I would not eat any processed food that had more than 10 grams of carbs in it. There is not much out there that matches that criterion, unless you make it yourself.
Stress can be a factor in how your body metabolizes sugar. When you feel stressed, your body releases hormones that affect the absorption of sugar into your blood cells. If the sugar doesn’t get absorbed into your blood cells the way it should to be, then the insulin will help store the sugar as fat. The excess insulin will cause you to have to find treatment for hypoglycemia.No tags for this post.
