Hypoglycaemia, or a "hypo", is an abnormally low level of glucose in our blood (less than four millimoles per litre).
When our glucose levels are too low, our body doesn't have enough energy to carry out its activities. Hypoglycemia is most commonly associated with both type 1 & 2 diabetes insulin dependents
A hypo can happen quickly. So it’s important that we know what the signs are and that we know how to treat a hypo if we have one.
A low blood sugar level can also happen while we are sleeping. This may cause us to wake up during the night or cause headaches, tiredness or damp sheets (from sweat) in the morning.
Or it could be your next meal, if it’s due.
If you’re feeling too drowsy or confused to eat or drink, ask someone to help you.
If we continue to have low blood sugar episodes, we should share our blood sugar, insulin, physical activity, and food logs with our doctor. They may be able to identify patterns and help prevent lows by adjusting the timing and amount of your insulin, physical activity, and meals.
To make food logs more seamless and easier to document, check out our smart nutrition scale that comes with an integrated food diary app.
I take the Rysodeg 70/30 insulin injection 💉.
However I tend to have hypos as well as highs quite frequently. My insulin dosage is 36 units before my evening meal.I’m very confused at the moment. For example, yesterday I clocked 6.5 ks of walking ate normally, did a bit of gardening etc & yet my glucose level at bedtime was 11.9. This is only one time example.Hypos & highs are often experienced in spite of taking Ryzodeg.
Have I become immune to insulin intake? BTW I’m 80 years old.
