A drop in blood glucose to below 0.50 g/L (2.75 mmol/L). The most common causes are diabetes, alcohol consumption, high sugar intake, insufficient protein intake, stress, drugs, and functional hypoglycemia.
Hypoglycemia is not a disease in itself. Rather, it is a dysfunction in the body's ability to rid itself of sugars when necessary due to overactive stress glands (adrenal glands), an overreaction of the pancreas or simply poor nutrition (e.g. too much sugar or not enough protein).
Eat fewer carbohydrates (e.g. white and brown sugars, honey and corn syrup) and more protein. Ideally, you should eat 3 meals a day and have protein at every meal. Eliminate refined carbohydrates and simple sugars.
