Low Blood Sugar Symptoms; 14 Signs & Symptoms of Hypoglycemia

7. Hypotension


Hypoglycemia and hypotension usually come together as one, and it is actually a complication of having low levels of glucose in the blood. Hypotension is a low blood pressure, which is a measure of how fast the blood circulates the cardiovascular system. A low blood pressure leads to a reduction of blood flow in the smaller arteries because as it goes down the blood flow in these minute blood vessels become slower. Hypotension further aggravates the energy failure in the central nervous system and the musculoskeletal system and makes the symptoms of hypoglycemia even more severe. Thus, if you’re suspecting hypoglycemia in a patient with severe symptoms, there’s a high chance he’s also experiencing hypotension and needs to be tested and attended by a doctor.
