Symptoms of hypoglycemia
If there is not enough, you can earn hypoglycemia .
weakness ... .. Dizziness Irritability ... fatigue ... Headache ... .. Nausea Hot flashes ... Tinnitus ... and, finally, loss of consciousness.All this has happened to you after the session of physical activity on an empty stomach, and very similar to the symptoms of the disease, called hypoglycemia.Are you sick?
mechanism of hypoglycemia hypoglycemia
mechanism is as follows.During digestion carbohydrates in your gut are broken down into molecules of different sugars.One of these sugars - Glucose - almost immediately absorbed into the bloodstream.As soon as you threw into the stomach one dish, second, third, the amount of glucose in the blood increases and can reach the level of 150-180 mg / dL.And this is perhaps the consistency of syrup!It is understood that the blood thickening threatened disaster.And then it comes to the aid of the body to the hormone insulin (it secretes the pancreas).Insulin acts as asort key "unlocking" the muscle cells into the organism and the glucose intake blood cells.This immediately lowers the blood sugar level to the normal (approximately 60 mg / dl).However, if the pancreas has allocated too much insulin, he "will take" blood glucose greater than necessary.But the shortage of sugar in the blood - this is hardly more evil than its excess, because glucose - the main "fuel" of the brain.If the brain is not enough glucose is ... Symptoms of hypoglycaemia, see above.
Usually after eating sugar level rises slowly and as smoothly lowered by insulin secretion.If the sugar level jumps sharply, and then just as abruptly falls below standards - this is hypoglycemia.By the way, it is easier to diagnose lung.Suffice it immediately after a meal to eat a piece of refined sugar.If sweet to help cope with nausea and dizziness, it means that the symptoms were caused by the slump in blood sugar levels, and you really hypoglycemia.
If a condition similar to hypoglycemia, has overtaken you in the middle of a workout, do not rush to panic.It is a "false" hypoglycemia.Means of treatment is simple - an injection of glucose solution.If loss of consciousness did not happen quite limp to the fitness bar and have a drink there a cup of very sweet tea.
So why did you become ill?Any physical activity requires energy consumption, well, "fuel" for strength training is a blood sugar - glucose.In the bloodstream it is relatively small and lacks only 5-7 minutes of intense strength training.Meanwhile, large reserves of glucose stored in your liver.The pancreas secretes the hormone glucagon, and it makes the liver slowly "releasing" the stored blood glucose into the bloodstream.As a result, you will be able to train for another hour and a half.However, if you are a long time sitting on a starvation diet with minimal carbohydrates, your liver stores sugar is too low.As a result, you can quickly "spend" blood glucose, and then the liver, and as a result a lack of sugar in the blood will lead to the development of the state for the type of hypoglycemia.
Symptoms of hypoglycaemia may develop even in the event that prior to exercise, you have not eaten for a long time.The energy source for you all this time was a sugar liver.You have exhausted its reserves, and then took up weight training.Hence, lack of energy, nausea, and so on.To protect yourself, take measures to facilitate the establishment of stocks of sugar the liver.To do this, take proteins and carbohydrates in a ratio of 1: 3 for the whole day - every 3-3.5 hours.And be sure to drink plenty of water.The fact that the liver glucose stores, "binding" it with water.The less you drink, the less supply of glucose.And for an hour or two before the workout sure to back up anything-amyloid protein, such as low-fat cheese with a slice of wholemeal bread.
Do not try to eat apples, grapes or candy!They have a so-called "simple" carbohydrates that provoke an immediate and abundant secretion of insulin.Blood sugar levels will drop dangerously, and you can collapse in a faint right in training, shlopotat hypoglycemia.
