Health Tip: If Your Blood Sugar is Low

Symptoms of hypoglycemia

(HealthDay News) -- Hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, occurs when the body's supply of sugar becomes too low. This is very common in diabetics, especially if too much insulin is administered to prevent high blood sugar (sometimes called an insulin reaction).

Here are warning signs of low blood sugar, courtesy of the American Academy of Family Physicians:

  • Headache.
  • Confusion, nervousness or anxiety.
  • Dizziness and shaking.
  • Sweating.
  • Rapidly beating heart.
  • A powerful feeling of hunger.
