The importance of hypoglycemia
Our brain depends on a constant supply of glucose (“sugar”) to function properly.
Normally, blood sugar level stays above 70 mg/dl (3.89 mmol/L).
Hypoglycemia is considered when blood sugar levels fall below these values.
The brain sounds the alarm
When blood sugar levels begin to fall below what is recommended, our body begins to feel a series of symptoms.
THESE ARE ORIGINATED BY THE GLUCOSE SHORTAGE IN THE BRAIN.
