What Causes Hypoglycemia?
In order to deal properly with hypoglycemia we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors.
We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow hypoglycemia to develop?"

Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind hypoglycemia consists of three steps:
Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors
Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to hypoglycemia. Here are six possibilities:
- Adrenal Fatigue
- Metal Toxicity
- Mercury Toxicity
- Vasectomy Side-Effects
- Copper Toxicity
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
allergies to certain foods
short-term memory failure
high iodine consumption
having amalgam fillings
macrocytic red cells
severe menopausal arthritis
difficulty losing weight
heavily coated tongue
... and more than 140 others
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of hypoglycemia:
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis
is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.
In the Glandular Symptoms
section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™
will ask the following question about hypoglycemia:
Do you suffer from Hypoglycemia (abnormally low blood glucose level)?
→ Never had it / don't know
→ Probably had it/minor episode(s) now resolved
→ Major episode(s) now resolved
→ Current minor problem
→ Current significant problem
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either history of hypoglycemia or hypoglycemia, The Analyst™
will consider possibilities such as:
Patients suffering with Wilson's Syndrome, a form of hypothyroidism, occasionally experience intense and previously unfamiliar cravings for sweets. The low body temperature patterns may affect the function of enzymes involved in glucose metabolism that could result in lower blood sugar levels which might contribute to sweet cravings.
Mercury Toxicity (Amalgam Illness)
Heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, lead and thallium poison the glucose metabolizing catalysts, thus reducing the flow of energy throughout the body. It is interesting to note that the symptoms of heavy metal poisoning are similar to symptoms associated with hypoglycemia i.e. hyperactivity, mood swings, manic depressive behavior, poor concentration and impulsive and unpredictable behavior.
