The condition of hypoglycemia or blood sugar content below the threshold of normal turns out don’t think is harmless The less blood sugar content can cause loss of consciousness even until his death.
“Hypoglycemia was more danger from hyperglycemia because when it’s too late is handled can attack the heart and died,” said Budiman Darmowidjojo, expert in diseases, endocrine
If the hiperglimekia is usually a matter of months or years, if hypoglycemia effect is seen in a matter of minutes, “he explained.
In the blood, there is sugar content of the digestive tract results will be circulated throughout the body for metabolic processes and generate energy. In normal conditions, blood sugar content ranges from 70 to 100 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl). The content of blood sugar in the body is controlled by the insulin-a hormone produced by the beta cells of the pancreas. This hormone insulin which breaks down glucose in the blood into compounds that are more easily digested by the body. When a person has high blood sugar content above a threshold of normal in a relatively long, then such person may be at risk of experiencing diabetes.
Although diabetes is often associated with high sugar content in the blood or Hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia or fewer conditions but also often occur in people with diabetes or diabetes. Blood sugar condition can be called hippo when less than 40 mg/dl for men and less than 70 mg/dl to diabetes.
The symptoms can appear as cold sweating, palpitations or pounding, pale, chest pain, anxiety, trembling, hunger, blurred vision, headaches, confusion, and seizures. The condition of all or any one of them occurs not simply because of the sheer diabetes disease factors, but due to the effects of drug use-lowering blood sugar levels that are usually consumed by diabetes.
“Hypoglycemia in Indonesia mostly because the drug, a drug that is in the service of glibenclamide and metformin was primary,” said Budiman.
Glibenclamide or which can also be known as glyburide is a type of drug content provided with the function of pancreatic beta cells to stimulate produce more insulin to digest the sugar in the blood type-2 diabetics. However, these drugs have no performance as good as metformin and become the main cause of the occurrence of hypoglycemia. Metformin alone has side effects in the form of indigestion.
The use of glibenclamide must expressly comply dose and drink 30 minutes before eating. When diabetes drank the last of the old forgotten or glibenclamide is not packed, then hypoglycemia can occur.
“If there are symptoms of hypoglycemia, it should immediately ensure blood sugar condition, but when it is not able to or have already urged, should directly consume the sweet as sugar water or chocolate,” said Budiman.
