Sugar and carbs oh my! Wonder what effects these can have on the body?
Have you ever felt light-headed, shaky, anxious, heart racing, tired and hungry? These are the symptoms of hypoglycemia and are all to familiar to me. I’ve had it since my college days but rarely and I mean rarely does it rear it’s ugly head.
What is hypoglycemia, also known as low blood sugar or low blood glucose? It occurs when the glucose levels in the blood drop below normal. Typically, the cause can be lack of carbohydrates. Eating a small amount of healthy low glycemic carbs will quickly reduce the symptoms.
What triggered my recent symptoms? To my surprise a healthy energy drink and protein bar, both with all “natural” ingredients including natural sugars.
