Homeopathy Medicine for Hypoglycemia
The condition known as hypoglycemia occurs when the blood sugar level, or glucose, is lower than normal.
Although hypoglycemia is frequently associated with the management of diabetes, people without diabetes can experience low blood sugar from a variety of drugs, illnesses, and conditions, many of which are uncommon.
3.9 millimoles per liter (mmol/L) or less should serve as an alert for hypoglycemia for many people, but your numbers might be different. Ask your doctor. Hypoglycemia needs immediate treatment when blood sugar levels are low.

Symptoms of Hypoglycemia
The following are some warning signs and symptoms of low blood sugar:
- heartbeat that is erratic or brisk
- Pale skin
- Numbness or tingling in the cheek, tongue, or lips
Signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia that get worse include:
- Confusion, abnormal behavior, or both, including a failure to carry out daily tasks
- blurry vision is one example of a visual disturbance.
- Loss of consciousness
Causes of Hypoglycemia
There are a number of reasons why blood sugar levels (glucose) can drop too low; the most frequent is a side effect of medications used to treat diabetes. Hypoglycemia is when these levels do so.
Blood sugar regulation
When someone consumes food, their body converts the carbohydrates into different sugar molecules, including glucose. These sugar molecules include those found in bread, rice, pasta, vegetables, fruit, and dairy products.
With the aid of the hormone insulin, which is secreted by the pancreas, glucose, the body’s primary energy source, enters the cells of the majority of tissues.
A different hormone produced by the pancreas tells the liver to release glucose into the bloodstream by breaking down the body’s stored glycogen if a person’s blood sugar level drops after several hours without food.
Possible causes, with diabetes
You might take insulin or other medications to lower blood sugar levels to treat this issue if you have diabetes because you might not make enough insulin (if you have type 1 diabetes) or you might not respond as well to it (if you have type 2 diabetes).
Hypoglycemia can happen if you eat less than usual after taking diabetes medication, if you exercise more than you usually do, or if you take too much insulin or other diabetes medications, which can cause your blood sugar level to drop too low.
Possible causes, without diabetes
There are a variety of potential causes for hypoglycemia, including the following:
Medications.Other medications, particularly in children or in people with kidney failure, can cause hypoglycemia. One example is quinine (Qualaquin), used to treat malaria. Another possible cause of hypoglycemia is accidentally taking someone else’s oral diabetes medication.
Excessive alcohol drinking.Hypoglycemia can be brought on by excessive drinking in the absence of food. This happens when your liver is unable to release stored glucose into your bloodstream.
Some critical illnesses.Hypoglycemia can be brought on by severe liver conditions like cirrhosis or severe hepatitis, and it can also be brought on by kidney problems that prevent your body from properly excreting medications, which can lead to a buildup of those medications in your blood.
Long-term starvation can leave your body with insufficient amounts of the nutrients it needs to produce glucose, as can happen in the eating disorder anorexia nervosa.
Insulin overproduction.Other tumors can result in excessive production of insulin-like substances. Enlargement of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas can result in excessive insulin release, which results in hypoglycemia. Insulinoma, a rare pancreatic tumor, can cause you to produce too much insulin, which causes hypoglycemia.
Hormone deficiencies.Children can have hypoglycemia if they have too little growth hormone, and some disorders of the pituitary and adrenal glands can cause a deficiency of important hormones that regulate glucose production.
Hypoglycemia after meals
While not always the case, hypoglycemia symptoms can also appear after certain sugary meals when the body produces more insulin than is necessary. Hypoglycemia symptoms typically occur when someone hasn’t eaten, but this isn’t always the case.
Reactive hypoglycemia, also known as postprandial hypoglycemia, is a type of hypoglycemia that can strike both those who have undergone stomach bypass surgery and those who have not.
Hypoglycemia left untreated can result in:
- Loss of consciousness
The following are additional effects of hypoglycemia:
- Dizziness and weakness
- Motor vehicle accidents
- older adults are more likely to develop dementia
The risk of severe, life-threatening hypoglycemia increases when the body and brain stop producing warning signs and symptoms of a low blood sugar, such as trembling or irregular heartbeats, over time after experiencing numerous episodes of hypoglycemia.
If a person has diabetes, frequently occurs hypoglycemia, and is unaware of their hypoglycemia,
Episodes of low blood sugar can be frightening and uncomfortable for someone with diabetes, who may take less insulin out of fear of hypoglycemia, which can result in uncontrolled diabetes.
Homeopathic Treatment of Hypoglycemia
The goal of homeopathy is not only to treat low blood sugar symptoms but to address the underlying causes of the patient’s condition as well.
There are numerous medications, including Arsenic Album, Lycopodium, Carbo Veg, Calcaria Phos, Gelsemium, China, Natrum Mur, Sepia, Chelidonium, and Nux Vomica.
Arsenicum album– deals with mental and physical fatigue.
Adenosine-tri-phosphat– it is suggested for stabilizing energy.
Nux vomica– It is stated that food cravings and hypoglycemia symptoms are present.
Oenothera biennis –it regulates sugar metabolism.
Saccharum– it is suggested to counteract the addictive qualities.
