Hypoglycemia literally means low blood sugar. It occurs when the level of blood sugar in the body is too low to adequately fuel the body. Reactive hypoglycemia is hypoglycemia that occurs in response to eating certain types of food. When there is not enough glucose in the blood for the body to function properly or when the descent of blood sugar occurs too quickly, multiple symptoms can occur. The symptoms can be mild, moderate, or severe. You might think if one is experiencing low blood sugar; the answer would be to just eat more sugar. But, for people with reactive hypoglycemia, that only makes symptoms worse.
Blood sugar conditions have been on the rise not only in the United States, but worldwide. Conditions such as Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, Impaired Glucose Tolerance, Syndrome X, and Reactive Hypoglycemia are becoming more prevalent.
