Excess Insulin Secretion

Hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia is a condition of low blood glucose caused by excess insulin secretion. Insulin appears in the beta cells in the pancreas. It changes the glucose to energy. Insulin resistance occurs when the body's cells become resistant to it. As a result of insulin resistance and other factors, the pancreas produces more insulin than normal. Hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia varies by age and severity of the hypoglycemia. The symptoms of it are attributed to the effects on the brain of insufficient glucose.

Hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance create myriad problems, including elevated triglycerides, low HDL, type II diabetes, and obesity. There are uncommon cases of more persistent harm, and rarely even death, due to severe hypoglycemia of this type. Diabetes management requires that you get the diabetes test done so that diabetes medicine can improve symptoms of diabetes. Diabetes health requires you to have normal secretion of insulin.

Hypoglycemia is treated by raising the blood glucose. The simple diabetes diet way is to eat or drink 10-30 grams of carbohydrate. Carbohydrate is digested and raises blood sugar most rapidly if it is not eaten with protein or fat. When hypoglycemia is more severe or carbohydrate can not be given by mouth, glucagon can be injected intramuscularly or intravenously. Also, dextrose can be infused intravenously to raise the blood glucose level. Most people recover fully even from severe hypoglycemia after the excess insulin secretion is restored to normal.
