The Glycemic Index Laboratories located in Toronto, Canada, performed tests on four different sweeteners to demonstrate the postprandial (after consumption) blood glucose and insulin responses. The study consisted of 15 healthy subjects between the ages of 18 and 75.
Blood glucose levels after the non-nutritive sweeteners were significantly lower compared to sucrose at 15, 30 and 45 minutes. Postprandial incremental serum insulin measurements after four different sweeteners balanced for sweetness.
A craving for sweets and starch in excessive amounts between meals is the first sign of a low blood sugar level. As demonstrated in the chart below, Swerve is non-glycemic and does not raise blood glucose (blood sugar) levels. Glucose levels were also significantly lower after both Swerve products compared to high potency sweetener at 15 minutes. Results are expressed as Mean±SEM, and using ANOVA for main effects of time and test meal and the time?meal interaction. Consult with your doctor, dietician or nutritionist to know if the recipe is appropriate for a diabetes diet.

When the blood sugar level falls much below normal, symptoms such as nervousness, irritability, fatigue, depression, disturbed vision, and headaches' appear. If the time?mean interaction was significant, then ANOVA was conducted for each time point using Tukey-Kramer method to adjust for multiple comparisons. Other symptoms are sweating, trembling, numbness, absent- mindedness, dizziness, palpitations of the heart, and some sexual disturbances. Most hypoglycaemia patients feel hungry arid eat frequently to get over the feeling of weakness and emotional irritability.
Vitamins C and B increase tolerance of sugar and carbohydrates, and help normalize' sugar metabolism.
Pantothenic acid and vitamin B6 help to build up adrenals which are generally exhausted in persons with low blood sugar. However, when the patient experiences any symptoms that indicate a fall in blood sugar, he should immediately take a heaped teaspoonful of sugar and then seek medical help.
Low blood sugar is usually caused by an excessive intake of refined carbohydrates and sugary foods.

Two small apples with their peels should be taken after each meal for treating this condition.
These substances cause the pancreas, the adrenal glands, and the liver to lose their ability to handle the sugar properly. Other causes of low blood sugar are a tumour; or a disturbed functioning of the liver, pituitary gland, or adrenal glands. When blood sugar becomes abnormally low as a result of over exertion or under-nutrition, a glass of sherbet made of molasses will serve as a tonic and prevent the feeling of faintness.
