Hypoglycemia is a condition of lower-than-normal blood sugar. It is most common among people with diabetes. Although diabetes is a condition with high blood sugar and the goal of diabetes treatment is to lower blood sugar, sometimes blood sugar can dip too low and cause hypoglycemia.
With diabetes, there are even more reasons to eat breakfast. Skipping it can lead to hypoglycemia. In addition, skipping breakfast can reduce your body’s insulin response. Both of these effects lead to overall higher blood sugar - the opposite of what you want! But what if fast food is your only choice?
