Hypoglycemia can be a rare condition, which occurs in both diabetic and non-diabetic people. This is Ellie who hasn't had a proper meal in over 24 hours and is starting to feel light headed. This is a symptom of Hypoglycemia.
Hypoglycemia is when the blood glucose levels fall to a very low level and needs the energy from glucose to restore the homeostasis. Because Ellie hasn’t eaten in over 24 hours she hasn’t been getting the right nutrients and energy for her to be at her best. Along with feeling light headed she could also have a headache and look pale.
The stimulus for hypoglycemia is low blood sugar levels and the receptor is the human body that detects the low blood sugar levels. If Ellie ate something her blood sugar levels would go back to normal and her new stimulus would be homeostasis.
The effector is the insulin that is released into the body by eating food and the response to this is the blood sugar levels increase back to the normal level.
A diabetic person would need a regular dose of insulin because their bodies don’t automatically make insulin when glucose is consumed. A non-diabetic person needs to be aware of their blood sugar levels so that they don’t become fatigued. Hypoglycemia in a non-diabetic person is easier to fix that with diabetics.
Along with watching your meal plan, regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle can prevent Hypoglycemia in non-diabetic people.
