Hypoglycemia / Low Blood Sugar
Hypoglycemic episodes causing fatigue, inability to concentrate, depression (post prandial), irritability or headaches. Food craving where eating helps symptoms, craving of stimulants to maintain energy. Dysregulation of hypothalamic-pituitary axis causing poor insulin control, hypoadrenalism.

Hypoglycemia or low blood sugar usually means hyper insulin response to food. The classic hypoglycemic does not have chronically low blood sugar, but rather a highly variable blood sugar which fluctuates from high to very low levels. This fluctuation disrupts brain function and musculature performance, leading to body and mind fatigue, irritability, depression, indecisiveness, and a host of miscellaneous symptoms.
The natural mechanism of blood sugar regulation is conducted by the hypothalamus and pituitary which releases hormones upon detection of low blood sugar levels. This hormonal message may act in three ways. If there is food in the digestive tract, these hormones trigger pancreatic insulin release. Or, in the process of glycogenolysis, the hormones prompt adrenal release of minerals and glucocorticoids to stimulate the liver’s release of glycogen reserves. Adipose transition into glucose occurs through glyconeogenesis, which is also contingent on release by the pituitary and hypothalamus to the adrenal.
