The more dangerous the increase in blood sugar in the body, the more dangerous is its occurrence i.e. its decrease. According to the US National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, when the amount of glucose in the blood falls below 70 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL), it is considered low blood sugar.
According to the American website Healthline, all the cells present in the body, including our brain, require energy to function. In the human body, the sugar present in the blood i.e. glucose only works to give energy to these cells.
Explain that insulin is a type of hormone that helps cells to absorb glucose. On the other hand, when the amount of glucose in the blood decreases, it is called hypoglycemia. Let us know what is hypoglycemia i.e. low blood sugar and what are its symptoms and methods of prevention?
