For our brain to function properly, we need a constant supply of glucose (“sugar”).
Normally, blood sugar levels stay above 70mg/dl (3.89 mmol/L).
Hypoglycemia occurs when levels fall below these values.
The brain sounds the alarm
when blood sugar levels start to descend
below recommended values.
These are caused by the shortage of
glucose in the brain.
CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTORS
What we do at home can have a huge impact on our children’s health.
Therefore, if you have any questions about hypoglycemia, guidance for emergencies and others; the best thing you can do is to ask for advice from the health staff in charge of your child.They are the experts!
I only share general information that might help you, but please take into account that each child is completely different and what is good for one may not work for others.
Hypoglycemia is, in other words, a drop in blood sugar. Normally, this situation is associated with a series of symptoms. It is important that you are able to identify these symptoms.
Do not forget that in the prognosis of hypoglycemia, one of the crucial factors is the speed with which it is corrected by early identification of these symptoms.
When you or someone you are living with is at risk for hypoglycemia, it is especially important to learn what to do. Do not forget that low blood sugar levels can cause permanent changes in brain structures...
