Hypoglycaemia
 
Standard Definition

Hypoglycaemia is defined as an inadequate concentration of glucose in circulating blood (low blood sugar). Hypoglycaemia is typically divided into two categories: fasting hypoglycaemia and reactive hypoglycaemia. The fasting type is associated with medications and serious disease states and often can be a medical emergency. Reactive hypoglycaemia occurs several hours after a meal, and often with exercise. It is usually self-limiting and alleviated readily by eating.

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

Beta cells in the pancreas secrete the hormone insulin after meals in response to an increase in blood sugar levels. Insulin lowers blood glucose concentrations by stimulating glucose uptake into the cells. A drop in blood glucose because of increased cell glucose uptake causes the alpha cells of the pancreas to secrete the hormone glucagon. Glucagon, in turn, stimulates the release of glucose that is stored in the liver or muscles. These glucose-regulating mechanisms can become overworked by lifestyle factors such as stress or poor diet, by disease, or due to genetic predisposition.
