Low blood sugar which is called hypoglycaemia, is a condition that occur when blood sugar (glucose) is lower than normal. This may be eminent in people with diabetes who are taking insulin or certain other medicines to control their diabetes. As much as consuming and retaining excess sugar could be dangerous to the body, doctors have raised concern on the need to watch any level of sugar and to consult a doctor when it appears abnormal. Physicians warn that low blood level kills faster than high blood sugar, especially when the patient does not get intervention on time. About 90% or more of all the foods consumed by most Nigerians contain carbohydrate, which is further broken to sugar. A low blood sugar reaction can make you feel shaky, mixed up, unhappy, hungry, weak or tired. You may sweat a lot or get a headache, feel uneasy, have a pale skin, or anxious, feel cranky, trouble thinking clearly, double or blurry vision, fast or pounding heartbeat.
