Why does hypoglycemia cause panic attacks?

Why does hypoglycemia cause panic attacks?

Hypoglycemia is a hallmark symptom in Adrenal Fatigue. When the body is low in sugar on a relative scale, the alarm response is set off and part of that response is an outpouring of neurotransmitters including adrenaline and nor-epinephrine. These hormones spread throughout the body, and in the brain, they can trigger anxiety and in severe cases, panic attacks. Bear in mind that is called reactive hypoglycemia because blood sugar levels can be normal but a person is symptomatic. The body’s ability to regulate sugar balance depends on cortisol and insulin. When the adrenals are weak, cortisol output can become dysfunctional, and low blood sugar can become an issue. Read my article: Adrenal Fatigue and Hypoglycemia.
