HYPOGLYCEMIA (Low sugar level in the blood)
Category : Stomach
When there is a small amount of sugar or glucose in the blood it is called hypoglycemia.
The symptoms are:
- A great need to have sugar
- Constant hunger
- Eye ache
- Pains in several parts of the body
- Mental disorder, nervousness and insomnia
The overproduction of insulin by the pancreas can also produce hypoglycemia. Heredity and an inadequate diet are the main causes of this disease. This provokes the body to consume a great amount of carbohydrates and sugars. As a consequence, it produces an extra amount of insulin, thus causing an abnormality in the system characterized by a great need to give sugar to the body.
A diet high in proteins, low in refined carbohydrates and fat is recommended. Between meals the symptoms are accentuated, that is why a high-energy food with high protein content should be eaten, for example: nuts and peanuts in addition to nutrients containing vitamins and minerals. Vitamin E improves body energy and the circulation. It has been found that chromium picolinate greatly helps the insulin existing in the blood to work efficiently without requiring great amounts of sugar to supply this energy. Read Dr. Jeffery Fisher’s book, “The chromium Program”.
Warning! A sudden decrease of sugar can cause fainting and a metabolic imbalance. Keep a chocolate/toffee for emergency. Eat food at the first sign of symptoms.
