Q. What are the reasons for hypoglycemia?



Hi doctor,

My mother has been suffering from diabetes for three years. She is 61 years old and weighs 40 kg. She was on Gemer-1. Early morning around 5 AM, she often complains of excessive sweating and weakness. Sweating stops after taking tea, biscuit or sugar. She has stopped taking medication for the last 15 days. Due to personal loss, she has been undergoing stress and tension. Please suggest the required medical tests that she should undergo. Thank you.

  • Hypoglycemic attacks are episodes of low blood sugar values occurring in blood. Due to this she is having excessive sweating and weakness. Taking a sweet item is the correct treatment for such an attack.
  • The reason for such attacks may be because of many as follows:
  1. Skipping meals.
  2. Incorrect medicine dose.
  3. Kidney problems.
  4. Liver disease.
  5. Inappropriate exertion.
  6. Stress.
  • So please do the following tests for her. Serum creatinine, FBS – fasting blood sugar, PPBS – postprandial blood sugar, SGOT (serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase) and SGPT (serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase). You can either revert back with the results or can consult a physician.
