In this video, we’re going to talk about hypoglycemia without symptoms.
Let’s say that you notice that your blood sugars are very low, but you feel fine. This situation often occurs when you’re doing the ketogenic diet, or you’re fasting.
The definition of hypoglycemia is less than 70 for diabetics and less than 54 for non-diabetics.
When you start keto, and you aren’t eating large amounts of carbs anymore, your body will begin to burn ketones and fats. Your body will no longer depend on glucose. This means that the amount of glucose you need is far less than those not on a keto diet. In turn, your blood sugar levels can drop as low as 54 or even 45 without any symptoms.
The question is, are low blood sugars on keto dangerous? The answer is: it depends on if you have true hypoglycemia or if your blood sugars are at a normal level for being on keto.
If you experience hypoglycemia symptoms on keto, this is an indicator that you are in a true hypoglycemic state. These symptoms include:
• Trouble talking
• Vision problems
If you are experiencing hypoglycemic symptoms without low blood sugars, this could be idiopathic (unknown cause) hypoglycemia. This is most often a problem with your insulin receptors. When you have chronic high insulin levels (hyperinsulinemia), your insulin receptors become downgraded and begin to resist insulin, which is known as insulin resistance.
There’s also something called reactive hypoglycemia. This is related to low blood sugars 2-4 hours after a meal (often high in carbs).
The best remedy for hypoglycemia is to go on a low-carb ketogenic diet and gradually introduce fasting into your plan.
