Hypoglycemia is a condition characterized by abnormally low blood glucose levels, usually less than 70 mg/dl. Hypoglycemia may also be referred to as an insulin reaction, or insulin shock. Each person's reaction to hypoglycemia is different, so it's important that you learn your own signs and symptoms when your blood glucose is low.
Consume 15-20 grams of glucose or simple carbohydrates. Recheck your blood glucose after 15 minutes. If hypoglycemia continues, repeat. Once blood glucose returns to normal, eat a small snack if your next planned meal or snack is more than an hour or two away.
