Low blood sugar levels are a problem that many patients face today. With an increase in diabetes across the United States, the importance of teaching people about proper blood sugar levels is significant. Even those who do not have diabetes can experience symptoms brought on by low blood sugar and should know how to alleviate them. Here is a quick look at how blood sugar levels are affecting your patients bodies, how they can maintain their blood sugar levels, and how InterHealth ingredients can keep your patients on the right track.
How Blood Sugar Affects the Body
Blood sugar in the body, also known as glucose, comes from a few different sources. It can be taken from foods and created within the body by the liver turning muscles and fat into sugar. A variety of symptoms can occur when a patient’s blood sugar levels are low; heart palpitations, a decrease in concentration, loss of consciousness, mood swings, increase in headaches, lack of coordination, and blurry vision to name a few. These symptoms can be brought on by skipping a meal, exercising more than usual, eating less than normal, taking too much medication, or not taking the proper medication needed to keep a patient’s blood sugar levels in a healthy range.
How to Maintain Healthy Levels
Many foods and certain eating habits can contribute to your patient’s ability to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. A few different foods that can aid in keeping blood sugar levels within a healthy range are vegetables, whole grains, and nuts. Encouraging patients to add or increase these foods to their diet could be the key to keeping their levels normal. Also explaining to patients how skipping meals or drinking on an empty stomach can affect their blood sugar levels is vital to their understanding of how to manage levels. If patients want to drink alcohol, they should eat a meal before they start drinking or eat while they drink.
