Hypoglycaemia

Hypo = low / glyc = glucose / aemia = of the blood

Abnormally low blood sugar, generally below 3.5 mmol/L or 65 mg/dL.   This can be due to a number of reasons:

  • Too much insulin either being produced by the pancreas, or injected as treatment for diabetes.
  • Too little glucose entering the blood stream due to not having eaten for too long or for having eaten inappropriate foods.
