Often self-diagnosed, hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, is technically a serum glucose level of 54 mg/DL or lower.
While most patients with hypoglycemic symptoms do not reach this threshold, they experience its symptoms, including hunger, anxiety, grouchy mood, tremulousness, sweating, and nausea the farther away they get from their last meal.
Often a patient’s symptoms are due to a rapid drop in blood sugar level, and can be more common after a meal high in simple carbohydrates (termed reactive hypoglycemia). Hypoglycemia can also occur in a diabetic patient, as a result of blood sugar that falls too far below where it should be.
Blood sugar control and stabilization is dependent upon several organ systems, including the liver, pancreas, and adrenal glands.
Assessment may require lab testing, which we will order and interpret for you. Depending upon the results, we will treat the various organ systems involved so that your body is better able to maintain blood sugar homeostasis.
During this process, we work with you to find the ideal diet and exercise plan to make those “blood sugar blues” a thing of the past.

We want to assure our patients that the continuity of your care is our primary concern during this period of transition. Your practitioner will continue to be available to you in the same way, providing the same services, and accepting the same insurance plans. The only change will be where you drive to see her (and easier parking!). Concerning your access to supplements, you can continue to get them from your practitioner at her new location, or she may have set up an online dispensary to make reordering more convenient. Those details will be shared with you by your practitioner.
After we receive your appointment request, we will call you within 1 business day to confirm details and officially book your appointment.
