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.
The estimate of the actual number of diabetics in India is around 40 million. The prevalence of IGT is thought to be around 8.7 per cent in urban areas and 7.9 per cent in rural areas, although this estimate may be too high. It is thought that around 35 per cent of IGT sufferers go on to develop type 2 diabetes, so India is genuinely facing a healthcare crisis.
There’s a genetic mutation involved in type 2 diabetes, although researchers haven’t been able to pinpoint the exact mutation. You must have a genetic mutation in order to develop type 2 not everyone can get it. If you have a family history, you are at higher risk.
