You can also experience what we call a ‘low blood sugar crash’ which may result in a combination of all the low blood sugar symptoms. When you consume concentrated sugars or refined grains there is a rapid rise in your blood sugar levels. Insulin is then released from your pancreas and begins to open channels on cell membranes allowing glucose to travel from the blood into body cells.
In some individuals, too much insulin is released in response to a carbohydrate or sugar rich meal. When insulin is high, lots of cell glucose channels become opened which results in the blood glucose level dropping too low.
This can also contribute to the cycle of subsequent sugar cravings throughout the day as the body cries out for an immediate source of sugar to bring blood sugar levels up again quickly. Many people intuitively know that they have a blood sugar problem but wonder if they should get a medical diagnosis. They ask us if they should get a blood test. Blood tests are great for letting you know if you have HIGH blood sugar but we haven’t found them to be an accurate indicator of low blood sugar problems, your symptoms will give you a much more accurate picture.
If you answer ‘yes’ to several of the following questions or say ‘yes’ to just one of the questions marked with a double asterisk (**) then you can safely assume that you have a low blood sugar problem known as hypoglycemia.
Very Important Note: Did you know that ALL type 2 diabetes (onset diabetes) is preceded by untreated low blood sugar problems? In other words, if you have a Low Blood Sugar issue and you don’t fix it, you are a prime candidate for type 2 diabetes. There can come a time when your cells have let in too much insulin and start now resist letting any more enter. This is called insulin resistance. If insulin resistance (precursor to type 2 diabetes) is not corrected, eventually the pancreas will become exhausted and no longer be able to produce adequate amounts of insulin. This is how low blood sugar issues that are not nutritionally remedied will lead to diabetes. The good news is you can reverse low blood sugar and type 2 diabetes. Here are the first steps in that process. Chromium: is a naturally occurring trace mineral that enhances insulin’s effect in the body, improving the uptake of glucose, causing better blood circulation and maintenance of blood sugar level.
Most food today is very low in chromium, especially refined flour and refined sugars and sweets of all kinds, including even fruits. Add one chromium picolinate (from our online store) twice a day for additional blood sugar balancing.
L-glutamine is an amino acid that your body can use as emergency fuel. For example, if you have a blood sugar crash, from either eating sugar and then crashing or from going too long without food, reach for l-glutamine instead of sugar. It is has also been proven effective for reducing any type of cravings for carbs or sweets including alcohol.

Swinging from being very high after a meal, stimulant or stress, to being very low, say if you skipped a meal.
But if too much sugar or refined carbohydrates are consumed the blood sugar goes to high, causing high insulin and resulting in yet another crash. It then becomes impossible to achieve perfect blood sugar balance and insulin dependent diabetes ensues. Your best protein sources are from humanely raised (grass fed or pasture raised without hormones or antibiotics) animal products ie eggs, full fat dairy (not milk), wild (not farmed) fish, beef, bison, lamb, poultry, etc. Today she is able to reach out to even more women through her regular article contributions to HANS (Health Action Magazine) and her book “Get off the PMS and Perimenopausal Roller Coaster, Learn 9 Natural Fast Track Solutions to Balanced Hormones”.
