If your doctor knows that you do not use medications that affect your glucose level, it will ask you for readings after long fasts, either at home or in the hospital, to make a proper diagnosis. Also, when you have symptoms, a blood sample will be taken to be studied in the laboratory.
When you have hypoglycemia symptoms you should immediately ingest drinks and foods rich in sugar such as juices, sodas, sweets, and honey. After 15 minutes, take your blood sugar reading and if it has already reached 70 mg/dl, eat light but substantial food to help you stabilize the glucose.
When severe symptoms appear in which you are unable to eat by yourself, it will be necessary to administer intravenous glucose if you have it on hand, and if not, you should go to the ABC Medical Center Emergency Room.
If your hypoglycemia is due to a disease that causes it, once the cause has been identified, it must be treated through the appropriate medications or in case it is due to the presence of pancreatic tumors, they will be removed by surgical procedures.
