Night Time Hypoglycemia
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Night Time Hypoglycemia?
hey guys dr. Burke here in this video we’re going to talk about nighttime hypoglycemia okay that’s a situation where you wake up with a headache you have sleeping problems you’re tired but you can’t sleep you got sweating around your neck specifically you’re hungry you’re shaking so you have this blood sugar issues now yeah the one thing that I want to mention about that is that usually a lot of people that have this are already diabetics on insulin okay and they’re taking a little too much insulin driving it lower if you’re taking insulin or metformin and your blood sugar drops down to low my advice would be to get with your doctor to back off the medication because it’s working too much if you have too much in Flint it’s going to end up below 100 so why not back off versus what a lot of people do is they walk around with a little sugar in their pocket and eat this candy to try to raise the sugar just so called correct it but the problem is it’s going to keep coming up and down so the worst thing you do is do six meals a day it’s never going to cracked it’s going to keep it going you want to get with your doctor to back off the medication because you’re taking too much okay I mean the purpose of the medication is to lower the blood sugar but not lower all the way down that but let’s say for example you’re not a diabetic okay and you have this hypoglycemia either did at night or whenever and you go get a test and it comes out normal blood sugars there’s a condition called idiopathic postprandial syndrome which basically means if you Pathak is a word that means unknown cause post after perennial meal syndrome so they don’t know what’s causing this after effect of the meal okay this after blood sugar effect so that’s what they named it so it’s kind of like an unknown bunch of symptoms that doesn’t show up on a blood test but you have the symptoms and hopefully they won’t tell you you’re faking it because it’s actually legitimate so here’s what I think that’s going on with hypoglycemia especially if it doesn’t show up in a blood test what happens there’s a condition called insulin resistance most of you know what that is where the cells are resisting insulin and the reason why they’re resisting it is because the body is rejecting and trying to protect you against too much sugar so it’s going to block it eventually if you have too much sugar so then in cells because we’re not getting the insulin we don’t an insulin as a key that allows the fuel to go in the cell now we end up with a cell with low amounts of fuel energy or even glucose so we basically have a situation worried we have low blood sugar in the cell it’s like hypoglycemia the cell and your you have all these sensors are going to pick up you’re going to have these symptoms here you’re going to crave sweets you know if your cells are starting to sugar you’re going to crave sweets especially if your brain cells are starving the sugar that’s going to send a signal back to the pancreas that we’re low in sugar and then we’re going to raise insulin and guess what that’s going to do it’s going to drive the blood sugar down even lower so hypoglycemia is a situation where we have too much insulin that pushes the sugar down below where it should be well one cause of too much insulin would be insulin resistance so really hypoglycemia is an insulin resistance situation that starts at a very low level and it gradually increases over time and be interesting if you have this and you have normal blood sugars to get a fasting insulin test to see what’s going on I bet you that would be very high beep right ten twenty or thirty so it should be a lot lower but the point is that if you have these nighttime hypoglycemic reactions chances are you have insulin resistance and that means that you need to fix it using food and the way to do it is not to have five meals a day the way to do it is to conclude consume food that’s higher in things that a type of food that doesn’t increase insulin so in other words we want to avoid the stimulation of insulin that’s the goal so we want to avoid carbs refined carbs and sugar for sure and fruit we want to avoid all that fat will help you fat will actually not increase insulin it will make you satisfied so you can go longer without eating eating in general triggers insulin so you’re going to have to not eat as frequent it’s called in a minute fasting so just start with three meals a day and add more fat have a good amount of greens salad vegetables have a moderate amount of protein and and if you do that over a period of two or three weeks your body will start to adapt the insulin will come down your blood Sugar’s will level out and you will no longer get hypoglycemia now in the transition phase if you have still have symptoms in your transitioning through this and it’s rough instead of eating sugar you can have protein protein will trigger the opposing hormone to insulin called glucagon and it will raise sugar okay so that’s just a side note because what we’re trying to do is we’re trying to fix this insulin spike that’s kind of over exaggerating bringing this thing down here okay so anyway I hope that gave you some idea of what’s really behind this and the thing not to do is to continue the sugar pills and then also if you’re on medication get with your doctor to make the adjustments and even if you’re diabetic I recommend doing the intermittent fasting as well as the ketogenic diet alright thanks for watching hi guys hey listen I created a pretty amazing evaluation quiz down below that actually
