As you probably know, Reactive hypoglycemia is low blood sugar. It can occur when blood glucose falls, resources of glucose from the liver are exhausted and an individual chooses not to eat. Gradually the body adjusts to this situation by using muscle protein to feed glucose to brain cells and fat to fuel the other body cells. But, until this happens, a person may suffer from: hunger, nervousness and shakiness, perspiration, dizziness or light-headedness, sleepiness, confusion, difficulty speaking and feeling anxious or weak. Hypoglycemia can also happen while a person is sleeping. One might cry out or have nightmares, find that their pajamas or sheets are damp from perspiration, feel tired, irritable, or confused when they wake up. If the symptoms are severe, it is important to learn to eat promptly and properly with a balanced meal or snack. Reactive hypoglycemia does not lead to more severe conditions.
