Comments: ‘Hypoglycemia’ is not a medically recognized term, except in connection with diabetes and various other diseases.
There is little money to be made from Nutritional Medicine by doctors, because nutrients cannot be patented. ACUPUNCTURE FOR DEPRESSION: Following treatments specifically designed to address depression, 64% of the women (n = 33) experienced full remission. ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATE (ATP) or biological energy, is closely related to motivationsee here. ADRENALINE “Adrenaline, secreted by the medulla of the adrenal gland, is carried by the blood to the liver, where it stimulates the breakdown of glycogen to glucose, thus increasing the blood sugar levels” Lehninger 346 See: Adrenaline to Glucose image.
ALCOHOLICS IN RECOVERY: Comorbid depression appears to be a significant risk factor for relapse among recovering alcoholics.
Alcohol dependency is accompanied by zinc content decrease in the hippocampus Bovt VD, 2001. Alcoholism Statistics: Approximately 4% of adult drinkers are alcoholics, a figure calculated from the known incidence of mortality caused by cirrhosis of the liver, and therefore probably a conservative estimate. The 2006 survey indicated very little change in drinking habits, with about half of the population (50.9 percent) reported as alcohol drinkers, about one-fifth binge drinkers and about seven percent listed as heavy drinkers.
ALCOHOLISM AND VIOLENCE: “Based on clinical observations in a series of studies on Finnish alcoholic, violent offenders, we asserted that the impulsive offenders represented an extreme group of type 2 alcoholics. ALTERNATIVE SWEETENERS: There is a lot of information on the internet, some of it rather controversial. Peripheral hyperinsulinemia correlates with an abnormal removal of the amyloid beta peptide (Abeta) and an increase of tau hyperphosphorylation as a result of augmented cdk5 and GSK3beta activities.

ANTIPSYCHOTIC MEDICATIONS: Significant weight gain experiences in children using anti-psychotic drugs, such as olanzapine (Zyprexa), ariprazole (Abilify), quetiapine (Seroquel) or resipiridone (Risperdal). AMA Statement on Hypoglycemia in 1973   Because of the possible misunderstanding about the matter, three organizations of physicians and scientists (the American Diabetes Association, the Endocrine Society, and the American Medical Association) have issued the following statement for the public concerning the diagnosis and treatment of hypoglycemia: Published 5 February 1973, Statement on hypoglycemia, editorial. There is a significant association between anxiety attacks and hypoglycemia according to these sources and here. APPLE CIDER VINEGAR: is fermented form crushed apples alcohol into acetic acid-forming bacteria into vinegar. ATTENTION DEFICIT AND HYPERACTIVITY (ADHD) DISORDER: Lendon Smith‘s article about the non-drug treatment of ADHD.
Bipolar patients can benefit from lecithin, which contains 10-20% phosphatidylcholine, the precursor of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. BIPOLAR DISORDER AND GENES: “Linkage evidence suggests that chromosome 13 (13q32-33) contains susceptibility genes for both bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. BITTER LEMON(Mormordica charantia): also known as Balsam pear, Bitter Gourd, Karela is tropical fruit. Some other symptoms of dermatomyositis are dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing), fever, and fatigue, loss of appetite, weight loss and deposits of calcium on the skin. This disorder can be easily detected by your doctor on seeing the inflammatory muscle and change in skin color. As such there is no treatment for dermatomyositis, but any medicines can only alleviate the symptoms. Corticosteroids are prescribed for reducing inflammatory muscle which will provide relief from pain. For some people corticosteroid sparing medicines are prescribed for managing dermatomyositis.
You would also be given a shot of intravenous immunoglobulin to produce healthy antibodies by your immune system. Biological therapies are given in the form of rituximab for treating polymyositis and tumor necrosis factor inhibitors like enbrel and remicade are also recommended. In addition, for managing difficulty in swallowing speech therapy and physiotherapy will be beneficial to restore the lost muscular function. The term chronic renal failure implies a reduction in renal function, most often irreversible. The increased number of chronic diseases has led to a significant increase in renal failure. Well compensated chronic kidney disease with reduced renal function slightly, test results are still normal.
Appropriate diet: a diet low in protein and potassium can reduce the excretion of urea and potassium. Treatment of other cardiovascular risk factors (smoking cessation, reduce fat in the blood, regulate blood sugar). Appropriate treatment of the underlying disease and a change in diet can prevent serious injuries of bones, organs and vessels.
Dialysis: there are hemodialysis bypass (by means of a dialyzer) and peritoneal dialysis by means of a catheter. Kidney transplantation: the objective is to provide the best quality of life for the patient. Chronic kidney disease reduces life expectancy, especially if it is due to diabetes mellitus.
The appropriate treatment of chronic diseases like hypertension, diabetes and chronic inflammation is essential.

Fluouroquinolone class antibiotics, including Levaquin, Avelox and Cipro, have been a cause of growing concern for consumer and members of the medical community.
An ever burgeoning number of patients are discovering the link between their peripheral neuropathy and antibiotics like Levaquin. While Arentz Law Group maintains joint responsibility most cases are referred to other attorneys for principal responsibility. Doctors appear to be in denial about the significance of hypoglycemia in relation to many illnesses, probably due to the fact that it can be treated without recourse to drugs. It is a popular term used by people with hypoglycemic symptoms as a result of unstable blood sugar levels, and often seen in a special Glucose Tolerance Test. There has been much reluctance by the Medical Profession to reward doctors for non-drug therapy based on Clinical Nutrition. 1998, “God belief appears to be relatively unimportant in deriving AA-related benefit, but atheist and agnostic clients are less likely to initiate and sustain AA attendance relative to spiritual and religious clients. While few major independent studies agree the success rate is that high and more than 600 studies have consistently shown the success rate to be substantially lower (18 percent at six months and less than 10 percent at five years), this has not deterred the treatment industry from proclaiming that treatment works.” Source.
International comparisons of alcoholism generally rely on data on cirrhosis of the liver (the “Jellinek formula”), and it is known that cirrhosis rates are highly correlated with overall consumption levels. Source “Estimates vary, but recent studies  at UCLA show that “the top 5% of drinkers account for 42%of the nation’s total alcohol consumption.” If 5% of all drinkers account for nearly half of total alcohol sales, it would be folly for the alcohol industry to get serious about encouraging moderation. We also observed that these subjects were vulnerable to hypoglycemia after the administration of oral glucose load.
Compared to people taking another class of diabetes medications called sulfonylureas, those taking metformin had a 20 percent reduced risk of developing dementia over the five-year study period. Glucose homeostasis is critical for energy generation, neuronal maintenance, neurogenesis, neurotransmitter regulation, cell survival and synaptic plasticity.

This leads to cellular cascades that trigger a neurodegenerative phenotype and decline in cognitive function.”Neumann KF et als (2008), Insulin resistance and Alzheimer’s Disease. It appears it can be reversed by fluoxetine in some cases – an SSRI – indicating that it may be due to a serotonin deficiency.
15 (HealthDay News) — Diabetes patients who take a certain class of antibiotics are more likely to have severe blood sugar fluctuations than those who take other types of the drugs, a new study finds.
When it occurs, it is often attended by symptoms of sweating, shakiness, trembling, anxiety, fast heart action, headache, hunger sensations, brief feelings of weakness, and, occasionally, seizures and coma.
See also:  Anxiety Attacks and Reactive Hypoglycaemia Youtube Clinical anxiety may be associated with an elevated blood lactate level and increased lactate to pyruvate ratio.
Comorbid obesity and ADHD symptoms rendered treatment less successful compared to NAD counterparts. Researchers at Britain’s Oxford University Department of Biochemistry found that mannoheptulose inhibits tumor cell glucose uptake and also inhibits glucokinase, the enzyme used in glycolysis.
Recently, genes called “G72? and “G30? were identified, and polymorphisms of these overlapping genes were reported to be associated with schizophrenia.
Glucose tolerance of 73% of the maturity onset diabetic patients improved with fruit juice of M. Furthermore, brain glycogen can rebound (super-compensate) after a single episode of hypoglycemia. The difference in behaviour is thought to have something to do with the presence of large amounts of neuroglia (supporting structural tissue) found in the hypothalamus. Unlike normal skin rashes this disorder will create muscular weakness as the infection progresses. The thigh muscles, hip muscles, and muscles on the shoulder and upper arms are largely affected.
But there is one theory relating this disease to autoimmune disorder in which the body’s own immune cells will attack and destroy healthy tissues and cells. If required, he may do Magnetic Resonance Imaging test and electromyography for studying the intensity of muscle damage.
Your doctor is the right person to suggest the right method of treatment after examining the health condition and intensity of illness. These drugs are effective in reducing the production of auto-antibodies by the immune system thus improving muscular strength. In case, you are asked to take these drugs for 3-5 weeks then your doctor may give supplementary medicines in the form of vitamin D to reduce the side effects of corticosteroids. This product will destroy the cells that trigger auto-antibodies and produce large number of healthy antibodies to fight the disease. These medicines are expensive and still an experimental process for treating dermatomyositis. The kidneys are responsible for the urinary excretion, acid-base regulation and fluid balance.
Chronic renal failure therefore results in a failure of important, other than urinary excretion: abnormal blood pressure, metabolism of vitamins and hormones, clotting. The kidneys are no longer able to properly excrete toxins from the body, resulting in their accumulation in the blood (uremia =). Following the gradual decline in renal function, elimination of body toxins and water excretion require specific treatment.
Chronic diseases cause subsequent damage to the kidney tissue, causing a progressive limitation of renal function. A petition filed by the Southern Network on Adverse Reactions filed with the FDA links the ballooning number of peripheral neuropathy reports with the condition mitochondrial toxicity. With Cipro and Levaquin being some of the most widely prescribed antibiotics in the world researchers with SONAR have concluded that as many 31% of all patients may become victims of mitochondrial toxicity.
Patients are now holding drug makers accountable for not issuing proper warnings about the risks.If you have used any of these three drugs, and you have suffered from nerve damage, you may be able to file a lawsuit and collect compensation to cover medical expenses and other damages. We as a Association will continue to support those doctors who have a professional interest in holistic medicine. This apparent reticence to affiliate with AA ought to be clinically recognized when encouraging AA participation.” Tonigan JS, et al. 1978, “Intravenous glucose tolerance tests were given to 31 nondiabetic alcoholics and 11 healthy nonalcoholic controls. Therefore, rates of alcoholism for the countries of the world generally reflect consumption levels, so alcoholism in Canada is about average for Western countries.
Furthermore, we believe that while being hypoglycemic, the impulsive offenders are particularly irritable and aggressive.” Virkkunen M, Kallio E, Rawlings R, et als. It is associated with some ‘mental’ illnesses such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. The increased risk was low but doctors should consider it when prescribing the class of antibiotics, known as fluoroquinolones, to people with diabetes, the researchers said. However, the majority of people with these kinds of symptoms do not have hypoglycemia; a great many patients with anxiety reactions present with similar symptoms. Reasons for the comorbidity are unknown, but may involve brain dopamine or insulin receptor activity.
We postulate that brain glycogen serves as an energy store during hypoglycemia and that it may participate in the creation of reduced physiological responses to hypoglycemia that are involved in a symptom often observed in patients with diabetes, hypoglycemia unawareness” Choi IY, et als. Figure 4 shows how the brain ‘reflects’ blood glucose levels yet the hypothalamus may have different glucose content.
The rash may develop on any area of the body but often it is found on the eyelids, around nails, elbows, back, knees and chest. People who have polymyositis will have some causative factors that will trigger the immune system to fight against body’s own cells and tissues. For some people, muscle biopsy is done on the laboratory for analyzing the intensity of damage.
Immunosuppressive medication like Tacrolimus is also prescribed orally if the muscular weakness is getting worse. Without this treatment, chronic renal failure may ultimately lead to failure of renal function and lead to patient death. Mitochondrial toxicity damages or reduces the number of mitochondria in the body’s cells. They believe that the stronger warnings could lead physicians to pursue alternative therapies they may not have otherwise considered. Below is just a small sample of the research carried out on topics under major headings in alphabetical order which has a bearing on hypoglycemia and Clinical Nutrition. This triggers the release of adrenaline and cortisol replenishing the brain with glucose (energy) again.
In almost half of the alcoholics peak glucose concentration was higher and glucose elimination from the plasma was slower than in the controls.” Sereny G, Endrenyi L, Devenyi P. Cheek 1981, & Cheek 1981 (A), Holt AB et als 1980, Zinc administration improves gastric alcohol dehydrogenase activity in alcoholics, rat model, Caballeria J, 1997 Alcoholics may be deficient in zinc, an essential coenzyme in alcohol dehydrogenase.
About 2200 persons annually die in Canada from cirrhosis of the liver, which is equivalent to a death rate per year of 8.0 per 100 000 population. 1994, “Partner violence is a serious problem for women in alcoholism treatment.” Chase KA, et als. In an insulin resistance condition, there is a reduced sensitivity to insulin resulting in hyperinsulinemia; this condition persists for several years before becoming full-blown diabetes.
Furthermore, there is no good evidence that hypoglycemia causes depression, chronic fatigue, allergies, nervous breakdowns, alcoholism, juvenile delinquency, childhood behavior problems, drug addiction or inadequate sexual performance.
While more studies are needed, it appears that normalizing an elevated blood lactate level will sometimes relieve anxiety”, Werbach, 1991, 48, Low levels of phosphorus (hypophosphatemia) may be associated with anxiety, irritability, numbness, paresthesia (subjective feelings, numbness, ‘pins and needles’) no abstract, mentioned in Werbach 1991, 53 A good web site dealing with the connection between anxiety and hypoglycemia is at Sweet Nothings.

If replicated in further studies, these findings have important implications for treatment of severe and extreme obesity.” Altfas JR.
1978, A case study of a bipolar disorder with a deficiency of folate and vitamin B12 leading to pseudodementia. Hirsch MJ et als, 1996 Stoll AL, et als 1996 , however this should not be used in the depressive phase of bipolar disease. Taken together with the earlier report, this is the first demonstration of a novel gene(s), discovered through a positional approach, independently associated with both bipolar illness and schizophrenia.” Hattori E, et als.
With continuous treatment, the problem can be cured and you can regain the lost muscle strength. These are called auto-antibodies and people with dermatomyositis would have marked level of such auto-antibodies in their blood. He would start with high dosage of these drugs and taper it gradually as the symptoms begin to improve.
It should also be remembered that hypoglycemia is one aspect of a much wider cluster of symptoms relating to degenerative diseases in general. 1988, “When a person is preoccupied with sex and continues to engage in compulsive sexual activity despite adverse consequences (eg, loss of marriage, job, health, freedom), he or she is a sex addict. Untreated depression may increase risk for relapse to problem drinking.” Lippmann S, et als.
1975, “It was concluded that glucose intolerance in alcoholic patients is a common finding that occurs in the presence or absence of liver damage.” Iturriaga H, et als.
Bahmer 1981, Lorentzen HF 2000, Menzano E et als 1994, Prasad AS 1991, See Zinc “The synthesis of serotonin involves Zn [zinc] enzymes and since serotonin is necessary for melatonin synthesis, a Zn deficiency may result in low levels of both hormones.
A few hundred more die of other alcohol-related conditions (poisoning, automobile accidents, etc). 2003, “The odds of severe male-to-female physical aggression were more than 11 times (11 times) higher on days of men’s drinking than on days of no drinking.
See also Xylitol.   See also erythritol a fairly safe sweetener in addiction to stevia and xylitol Wikipedia See also Herbs with Hypoglycemic Effects. Toxic levels of insulin negatively influence neuronal function and survival, and elevation of peripheral insulin concentration acutely increases its cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentration. Reid SD 2000 Omega-3 fatty acids contained in fish oil may benefit people with bipolar disorder. This type of skin rash is marked with bluish purple patches on the affected areas of the skin.
When it comes to mood disorders, there are many other silent diseases that have an influence on our mind. Preferred treatment includes professional counseling and attendance at self-help programs based on the Alcoholics Anonymous model.” Schneider JP. 1987, “Sleep variables, anxiety, and depression are considered as possible markers of relapse in persons treated for alcoholism.” Mackenzie A, et als. 1986, “These findings indicate that glucose metabolism in alcoholics in a withdrawal state can be disturbed by impaired insulin secretion and insulin resistance.” Adner N, Nygren A. Rates of death caused by cirrhosis of the liver increase markedly with age and are higher in urban areas and in the west and north, the areas with the highest levels of alcohol consumption in Canada. These findings support the proximal effect model of alcohol use and partner violence.” Fals-Stewart W. For more information see: Anhedonia, Anhedonia related to clinical depression and insulin resistance.
Both hypoglycemia and diabetes share Insulin Resistance and so if you want to do research into non-diabetic hypoglycemia, you need to look for medical terms such as ‘insulin resistance’, ‘hyperinsulinism’, Glucose Intolerance, hyperglycemia, HPA (hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis), metabolic syndrome, cerebral glucose metabolism. Because hypoglycemia shares with diabetes “insulin resistance”, much of the research findings concerning diabetes applies equally to hypoglycemia, but the reader should keep in mind the differences between the two, when assessing the data. Moreover, high estrogen levels tend to cause increased absorption of Cu and Cd, and smoking and eating food contaminated with Cd result in high levels of the latter. 2003, “A defect in central serotonin metabolism may manifest itself in poor impulse control leading to attempts at suicide, violence towards others, and Type II alcohol abuse. There are studies to show that the supplementation with phenylalanine (Precursor of L-tyrosine (amino acids found in food) can benefit Bipolar patients. Some scientists studying schizophrenia have already come up with terms such as ‘Cerebral diabetes’, ‘brain diabetes’, pointing to abnormal glucose transport systems across the membranes of brain cells.
Furthermore, ethanol ingestion increases the elimination of Zn and Mg (which acts as a cofactor for CuZnSOD)[superoxidedismutase]” Johnson S. 1987, Diabetes poses a greater risk , Frey J 2001, Prediabetes (Hypoglycemia)  linked to Alzheimer’s Disease See also Hypoglycemia and dementia. Phenylalanine with vitamin B6 are the forerunners of phenylethylamine (found in chocolate). This comes very close to what we understand hypoglycemia to be, but we would prefer Dr George Samra’s definition of ‘Cerebral Hypoglycia‘, in his book: The Hypoglycemic Connection II, which more accurately points out the importance of glucose transport into cell, including brain cells.
Assessment revealed that 91% of the alcohol impaired drivers complained of at least some acute symptoms of depression. 2001 “Alcoholism impairs zinc absorption and increases zinc loss via urine” Milne DB et al (1993) A case study of an alcoholic with severe long-term hypoglycemia: “The probable etiology of low blood sugar in our patient was alcohol-induced inhibition of gluconeogenesis along with starvation. They showed significantly increased central noradrenaline metabolism, perhaps related to sensation seeking.” Roy A, Linnoila M. 2003, “CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study suggest that bipolar disorder is associated with alterations in the metabolism of cytosolic, choline-containing compounds in the anterior cingulate cortex. However, in total 38% of the sample showed significant signs of a clinical psychiatric syndrome (one requiring intervention or treatment) in addition to alcohol dependence.” Sutton LR. As this resonance arises primarily from phosphocholine and glycerophosphocholine, both of which are metabolites of phosphatidylcholine, these results are consistent with impaired intraneuronal signaling mechanisms.” Moore CM, et als. It is to be expected that the medical science will soon recognize ‘hypoglycemia’, although this term may not be used.
Ten months in to follow-up patient is still in persistent vegetative state with no noticeable neurological recovery.” Jain H, et als. Until such time when medical scientists can agree on a common term, we will be using the popular term ‘hypoglycemia’.
2002, “acute alcohol consumption brings on hypoglycemia in many individuals, since it inhibits gluconeogenesis from lactate and amino acids” Lehninger, 762 Hypoglycemia may be antecedent: “The origin of this atypical blood glucose response may antedate the onset of alcoholism, or it may be secondary to alcohol-related damage that persists beyond 6 months.
The point is that ‘hypoglycemia’ is a real disease and is forgotten by the medical profession.
These findings indicate that nutrition therapy can aid in the recovery from alcoholism.” Biery JR, at als. Previous accounts of increased sweet consumption in alcoholics were not substantiated, although they may be present in the peri-withdrawal period.” Umhau JC, et als.
The scarcity of research into hypoglycemia is due, no doubt, to the fact that most medical research is carried out by global pharmaceutical companies with an eye on profits for their investors. The financial reward for the production of xenobiotic chemical agents cannot be matched by scientific research about nutritional influences on disease and mental disorders without a ‘profit’ component.
