Women with PCOS often also suffer from diabetes and need to know how to recognize the warning signs of hypoglycemia, a potentially dangerous condition which involves abnormally low blood glucose levels – typically less than 70mg/dl. The target fasting level for someone with diabetes is 70-130mg/dl.
Be on the lookout for shakiness, dizziness, hunger, headache, light-headedness, moodiness and pale skin. Advanced symptoms include confusion, loss of consciousness and seizures.
If hypoglycemia develops, ingest sugar from such sources as fruit juice, regular (not diet) soda, glucose tablets or glucose gel. Be sure to seek medical help if the symptoms persist.
