What is Hypoglycemia ?

Most of us at one time or another experience a degree of low blood sugar. If we are tired or moody because we have not eaten for many hours, it is a sign that our blood sugar is low. Yet chronic hypoglycemia is more than mere moodiness associated with a lack of food. It is a sign that the organs that help balance blood sugar, such as the adrenal glands and the pancreas, aren't doing a good enough job. Fortunately, the symptoms of hypoglycemia can be eliminated with a diet of whole foods, frequent meals, and carefully chosen nutritional Supplements.

HYPOGLYCEMIA OR LOW BLOOD SUGAR refers to the. body's inability to maintain normal levels of sugar in the blood. Sugar is the main source of fuel for the body, and sugar levels must remain steady. Otherwise, the brain and other organs cannot function normally. When sugar levels become undesirably low, as can occur between meals or soon after sweets are eaten, the following problems can occur:

  • Food cravings, especially for sugar and starchy foods
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
