Do not ignore these simple signs of low blood sugar

When the blood sugar level suddenly drops, it would be difficult for the brain take the right decisions.

Many complain of uneasiness or nausea when their blood sugar level suddenly drops. A balanced diet that contains protein, healthy fats and carbohydrate could help prevent this condition. However, you could experience sudden drop in the blood sugar levels despite eating a healthy and well balanced diet. Those who experience sudden drop in blood sugar or glucose should be careful about these symptoms.

Not able to take decisions

Glucose is a major source of energy in the body. It is the brain that uses half of this energy for functioning properly. When the blood sugar level suddenly drops, it would be difficult for the brain take the right decisions. You could also lose your concentration. Eating a healthy snack or a midday meal could ensure enough supply of glucose and excellent functioning of the brain as well.

Too much sweating

It is quite natural to sweat a lot during the harsh summers or after an intense session of workout. However, sweating profusely while sitting at home or at the office, without physical exertion, could be a sign of dropping blood sugar. Try to eat anything immediately when you notice it. In most cases, this happens in the morning as the sugar level drops in the night.

Waking up at night

Broken sleep could be the result of dropping blood sugar. If you wake up continuously in sleep, it could be because of the blood sugar. The body produces stress hormones when the sugar level in the blood goes down. This disrupts the sleep.

Mood swings

Unexplained mood swings too could be caused by dropping blood sugar. If you are happy at one moment and then immediately turn gloomy, you could suspect that the sugar has gone down. If you experience sudden and unexplained mood swings, do not hesitate to consult a doctor.

Increased heart beats

If you feel that your heart is beating rapidly than it is supposed to, then your blood sugar level must be dropping. Try eating fresh fruits or fruit juices to avoid this condition.
