If you’re a girl, you probably have a thing for diabetics. In fact, the number of diabetics in the United States have grown by nearly 400% in just the past two decades. People with diabetes, or the people with pre-diabetes, face an increased risk of all sorts of illnesses and injuries.
Diabetics are always in the news, so this is a good reason to be on top of it. If you’re a diabetic, you probably know that your blood sugar levels can fluctuate wildly. If your blood sugar is high for a long stretch of time, you can get hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, which can cause you to pass out, fainting, and even death.
Well, maybe not death. A hypoglycemic coma can be incredibly dangerous, and can even be fatal, but it doesn’t necessarily end your life. Hypoglycemia can also be fatal, even if your blood sugar levels are not too low. Diabetics with low blood sugar, or type 2 diabetes, have a much higher chance of dying from a stroke or heart attack.
The good news is that hypoglycemia is rare, but not unheard of. According to the National Library of Medicine, “hypoglycemia is a condition in which brain cells cannot process the glucose needed to produce energy in the brain.” It is also called hypoglycemia or hypoglycemia crisis, and is seen in people with diabetes.
Not a lot of people are hypoglycemic. The only thing that could help is a tiny bit of extra brain oxygen that can’t be absorbed into the body. It’s a common finding in people with type 1 diabetes, and it is one of the first symptoms that people have.
Well, you know what I call her when I have a hypoglycemic crisis of my own? The hypo. I’m sure you’ll agree it’s the same thing. It’s a lot like having a hypoglycemic crisis in the first place.
How to get your hypoglycemic crisis to work.
The idea is to inject a small amount of insulin into your bloodstream. As you inhale the insulin, your body starts to get pumped up with glucose, causing your glucose level to increase. As the rise above your threshold for your blood sugar gets bigger, your body attempts to kick into high gear. But as it does, your blood sugar levels start to fall. The result is that you feel hungry, and you start to lose weight.
Deribit is a medication that’s used to treat diabetes. So it’s great to hear that the game does not actually have to have been developed so long ago. But still, I have to wonder why it took until now to develop this medication (or maybe this was developed first).
