Partly due to the high levels of sugar consumed in today's modern society and partly due to the amounts of stress we all subject ourselves to, low blood sugar is incredibly common, particularly in women. All too often, when feeling shaky, aggressive, irritable, sick and dizzy we reach for the chocolate bar or sweetened coffee to prop ourselves up and give much needed energy to get ourselves through to the end of the office day, the end of the journey or until there is a lull in responsibilities. All this does is give peaked blood sugar levels which cannot be sustained so that after the initial return of energy, it suddenly plummets away and a 'sugar crash' sends us reeling again. This roundabout can be avoided by regular complex carbohydrate meals, which release sugars slowly into the bloodstream, avoiding the peaks and troughs experienced with poor diet.
If this syndrome seems familiar, change your diet and, with the aid of a practitioner, look at liver, digestion, adrenal and thyroid glands and vitamin and mineral absorption. Lack of good nutrition will put a strain on all these organs as well as the more obvious pancreas, with its insulin and blood sugar regulating role, which may progress to late-onset diabetes if the chronic hypoglycaemia is not addressed. Follow the diet and herbal advice for diabetes and look at the adrenal glands, as these need support.
