Hypoglycemia is the medical term for low blood glucose, common among people with diabetes. It can occur even when you're trying hard to manage your blood sugar levels.
The Diabetes Association says while you can't always prevent hypoglycemia, you can take steps to treat it if you know the warning signs:
- Sweating or turning pale.
- Feeling dizzy or shaking.
- Developing a headache.
- Feeling hungry.
- Showing moodiness, or rapid behavior changes.
- Moving awkwardly or clumsily.
- Having a seizure.
- Acting confused, or having problems paying attention.
- Having a tingly feeling around the mouth.
