Hypoglycaemia is a disease of the Metabolism.
The abnormally low level of sugar in the blood is Hypoglycaemia.
It is a deficiency of the Glucose in the Bloodstream.
When we eat food, it directly goes to the Stomach. The Digestive System of the Body starts digestion. The Carbohydrates present in the food break down into small sugar molecules that is Glucose.
The Glucose is required by every cell of the Body. It provides energy to the Body.
Insulin is a hormone produced by the Pancreas. It regulates the level of Glucose in the Blood.
If the Insulin being produced by the Pancreas is optimum, the body's functionality is normal.
However, if the Pancreas either increase or decrease the production of Insulin the body is diseased.

Difference between Diabetes and Hypoglycemia
Diabetes : Increase in Blood Sugar.
Hypoglycaemia : Decrease in Blood Sugar.

Diabetes: Either the Pancreas do not release adequate Insulin, or the body does not use the Insulin effectively (insulin-resistance). Result, Increase in Blood Sugar.
Hypoglycaemia: Either the pancreas have released too much Insulin in response to the intake of sugar, or the body uses the Insulin ineffectively. Result ' Decrease in Blood Sugar.

The normal Fasting level of sugar is 80 to 110mg per 100ml of Blood.
After having food this may go up to a level of 180mg per 100ml of Blood, then it gradually drops down again.
Reading higher than these normal figures, should be considered Diabetes.
Reading lower than these normal figures, should be considered Hypoglycaemia.

Causes of Hypoglycaemia
Excessive Insulin
Medication for Diabetes
Deficiency of other glands that help to control the Glucose

Note 1. In Diabetes or Hypoglicemia, sugar level in the blood may fall suddenly. This may result in sudden unconsciousness.

If this precaution is not taken it will be very difficult for the doctor to diagnose the cause of your unconsciousness.

You must consult your doctor under all circumstances.

Dear Ferhan
Yes, You may start with mild doses and gradually increase the does. You may take it with Honey. Do 3 day course every week for 1 month. Take it it for 3 days and then repeat the dose for another 3 days in the second week. Like this take it for 4 weeks. For Hypoglycemia, cedar berries are also used to deal with the problem.

Dear Necdet
Yes, as the massive doses of Licorice taken for the for long time may cause erectile dysfunction. So, i Suggest you to take small doses only and take it for 3 days. Then repeat the dose next week also.
For Erectile dysfunction, you may take Withania somnifera powder. Take 1 teaspoon only for 15 days.

You should keep some sugar in your pocket all the time and keep a note in your pocket saying that " if I fall down please put the sugar in my mouth "
