Blood Sugar 11-44 mg/dl (0.6-2.42 mmol/l) after eating - Why it happens?


Normally, when eating the levels of blood sugar increase. But, in certain conditions, we get low blood sugar after eating instead of increased glucose levels. This is a common finding in people who have undergone stomach resection surgery.

When eating, the food bolus passes too quickly from the remains of the stomach to the intestines. The blood sugar increases (due to outer glucose intake) and the body produces and releases insulin to neutralize the high levels of glucose.

When one eats too much carbohydrate foods, the level of the glucose released is too high and the patient may experience severe hypoglycemia. Blood sugar levels may even reach the levels of 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44 mg/dl.

Blood Sugar 11-44 mg/dl (0.6-2.42 mmol/l) after eating - Symptoms


Such blood sugar levels are classified as severe hypoglycemia. The symptoms include:

1.   Seizures or convulsions

2.   Loss of consciousness

Blood Sugar 11-44 mg/dl (0.6-2.42 mmol/l) after eating - Treatment


No matter the cause, people with blood sugar level 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44 mg/dl are in mortal danger and thus, the treatment should take place in the specialized hospitals.

The first thing to do is to immediately put something sweet(sugar, candy, chocolate etc) in the mouth of the patient. This may require the use of force in most of the times because these people are unconscious and usually have seizures or convulsions.

Once hospitalized, the patient is given additional intravenous glucose until blood sugar levels reach the normal ranges. Checking the glucose level each 10-15 minutes is necessary for a proper follow-up of the patient.


Blood Sugar 11-44 mg/dl (0.6-2.42 mmol/l) after eating - Prevention


To prevent other episodes of such levels of hypoglycemia, the patient should be instructed to eat small and meals low in carbohydrates, several times a day. He also should be instructed to always keep something sweet along to eat as soon as he experiences the first signs of hypoglycemia.
