Dr. Berg talks about the basics of hypoglycemia, hypoglycemia signs and symptoms and its treatment. Hypoglycemia is a condition of low blood sugar in the body. This happens due to an overreaction of insulin (insulin is responsible for controlling the blood sugar levels in the body). So when the insulin is spiked too much or too fast in the body, it drops the sugar too low. The symptoms of low blood sugar include headache, stomach noise, brain dead, grief, craving sweets, anxiety, depression, moody, paranoid, fatigue, fear. So we should avoid having sugar in case of any hypoglycemia symptoms. A person with diabetes can have both forms of blood sugar levels, i.e. hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) or hypoglycemia (low glucose levels). The foods having hidden sources of carbs and sugars are juices, fruits, grains, yogurt, wine. For hypoglycemia treatment, a person can have berberine (that is an ancient Chinese herb), nutritional yeast, high potassium foods, exercise, protein breakfast.

Dr. Berg discusses hypoglycemia and all the effects it can create on your body: cravings for sweets, irritability, brain fog, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and diabetes. You need to avoid hidden sugars, like juice, fruit, grains, yogurt and wine…sorry.

  1. I would love to see a video on why it happens and how to deal with hypoglycemic attacks for those of us who are doing everything correctly. Every video I've watched on the subject only deals with the basics but not the exceptions. What about those of us who don't eat sugar, don't eat hidden carbs, don't have diabetes and eat less than 20 carbs/day doing Keto for last 2 months and only get hypoglycemic attacks when trying to fast for OMAD? I've been doing 2 meals a day on keto for at least a couple of months and wish I could graduate to doing an occasional OMAD or 36-hour fast so I can trigger autophagy. But the 2 times I tried OMAD, after about 21 or 22 hours of fasting, I had the attack. The first one was very scary! The second one was tonight and I caught it before I felt like I would faint and I had a tsp of honey. Then about 30 minutes later I made and picked at a big salad with spinach, kale, olive oil/ACV, cheese and ham and nuts for the next 2 hours (I couldn't eat at first and had to force it slowly). I saw your video on eating 10 cups of salad a day (I am at 200) and have been doing that ever since so i hope I am getting enough potassium. I'll try the berberine. I do eat eggs and bacon for breakfast every day and love it! I exercise, walking with occasional jogging about 2 miles/day 5-days a week and also I do about 8-16 flights of stairs/day 3 days a week along with pushups and jumping jacks. every other day.

  2. I used honey and cotton candy when my husband super low in the 30's
    Stuff cotton candy on the side of his wall of his mouth so no choking … saliva melts it real well

  3. You keep saying to keep away from sugar… I'm very been in ketosis for months, so obviously am FAR AWAY from sugar… and I can't keep my blood sugar above 48.

  4. What you're talking about the scribes and me 100% to the T. I've been dealing with this for about five years now I work physically as a cable man I sweat profusely having a lot of anxiety and stress out easy and I have to eat almost every 2 to 3 hours but it keeps recycling every day so what you're saying makes sense

  5. how about people who DO NOT EAT CRAP SAD processed foods and STILL have reactive hypo??? i am so lost in the shuffle. i have eaten so healthy all my life and been dismissed by doctors b/c i'm thin and look healthy. my Blood Glucose was 42 yesterday after a healthy low carb (10g), good fat/protein breakfast! every practitioner just assumes if you are unhealthy, your lifestyle is unhealthy. i'm so sick of the same advise that doesn't apply to my situation and assumptions made.

    I don't eat processed foods and have been low carb for much of my life and keto for 6 weeks…and still have this going on.

  6. Hi Dr Berg,
    A really helpful video. Thanks. I have clinical depression and recently, I have been having headaches and neck stiffness; when i checked my blood pressure, it was 100/65. What is the root cause for the pain? and what can be done about low blood pressures. Thanks.

  7. i got symptoms of hypoglycemia but recently a doctor diagonsed with my depression and gave me depression pills. now i am confused. Do i have anxiety, depression of hypoglycemia? i don't know but it seems to be all i got all the symptoms of depression and all symptoms of hypoglycemia. i am not diabetic so i really don't know what's wrong.

  8. Dr., I would like to watch a video about the relationship between potassium and hypoglycemia. You've mentioned that we should ingest potassium. I wish to know WHY. Thank you !

  9. I have all the sx of hypoglycemia, including sometimes passing out if I don’t eat. Yet my blood sugar always tests as normal. These dietary suggestions have helped a lot, but I am still curious if I am addressing the right issue. Why would my blood sugar test as normal with such significant symptoms?
