Low Blood Sugar Symptoms; 14 Signs & Symptoms of Hypoglycemia

12. Hunger

Patients with hypoglycemia usually start feeling hungry even before hypoglycemia symptoms start showing up. The majority of cases are preceded by a prolonged fasting time, usually longer than 6-8 hours. And even when this is not the case, patients may start feeling hungry as a defense mechanism, the body has to increase the circulating levels of glucose. As the brain perceives hypoglycemia, it starts sending a series of stimuli to promote the sensation of hunger and force the individual to take food in order to replenish the normal levels of energy and improve the symptoms.
