Symptoms, conditions and causes

What's the most common cause of Hypoglycemia?

If you’re diabetic, blood sugar levels below 70mg/dl are considered hypoglycemia. If you’re not a diabetic, blood sugar levels below 50mg/dl are considered hypoglycemia.

There are many types of hypoglycemia.

• Idiopathic hypoglycemic: unknown cause

• Idiopathic postprandial hypoglycemic: symptoms of hypoglycemia without low blood sugars

• Adrenal-related hypoglycemia: hypoglycemia due to abnormal adrenal function

• Hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia: related to high insulin

Hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia is the most common form of hypoglycemia.

Hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia may be caused by:

• Insulin injections

• Tumors

• Autoimmune disease

• Drugs

• Genetics

However, the most common cause of hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia is really excessive carbohydrate consumption, which causes inulin resistance.
