Diagnosis: Hypoglycemia can be diagnosed by low blood sugar levels on glucometer or based on symptoms. Treatment should always be followed by some investigation, as to why the hypoglycemia occurred and what could be done to prevent its recurrence.
Glucose tolerance tests help to diagnose type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance - a condition that may lead to diabetes.
In this blog post, we will be focusing on Hypoglycemia – its definition, symptoms, and treatments. Glucose (sugar) is one of the body’s major sources of energy and is manufactured in the form of complex carbohydrates or simple sugar. When blood sugar is critically low, the liver starts processing glycogen to convert it into new sugar.

When the brain senses that the glucose level in the body is falling, it sends messages to other parts of the body.
