remember hypoglycemia

hypoglycemia, that is very low bloodsugar should be kept in mind as it produces reactions that can be almost the same as a panic attack.

some people get both, fortunately home test machines can easily give a bloodsugar reading which if normal, rules out an attack of hypoglycemia

with very low bloodsugar, the brain cant work properly as its fuel is the sugar in the blood passing thru it

if someone only has 'panic attacks' before a meal and always feels better after eating, suspect hypoglycemia

The normal blood sugar range is anywhere between 80 to 120mg/dl. However, a person generally isn't considered hypoglycemic until the reading measures below 70mg/dl and is accompanied by symptoms including dizzyness, sweating, confusion, irritability, etc.

All these things could appear like a panic attack so its an important distinction to be made. If lots of sugar helps alleviate your symptoms of panic, I would get your blood sugar tested regularly to see what is happening. A TRUE case of hypoglycemia is indeed rare and usually only occurs in diabetics taking to much insulin or medication, but it can and does happen to others.

Re: remember hypoglycemia

some countries have a different scale, normal being between about 4 to 9
a further complication is that until recently, and perhaps still now, naturapaths didnt know about panic attacks and often put panic attack sufferers on a special hypoclycemia diet, having wrongly diagnosed them

until fairly recently, ambulance workers didnt know about panic attacks either
