Dr. Berg talks about the physiology of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) on your brain. The brain can run on glucose and ketones (and also lactic acid). The brain does not store sugar as glycogen like the liver and the muscles, so when you let your blood sugars drop too fast, it can starve the brain cells causing low oxygen. The low oxygen then destroys the neurons and brain cells. If this occurs chronically over time, you can get brain degeneration. There is a counter-regulatory mechanism that helps to bring the sugars back up. Your adrenals pump out adrenaline, and even cortisol to release sugar from other places, in attempts to stabilize the sugar. Growth hormone also kicks in and releases sugar too but will suppress the output of insulin, which is usually driving down the sugars in the first place.. Glucagon also kicks in and does the same. If your adrenals are weak, then it’s hormones don’t efficiently counter low blood sugars. Also, the deeper cause of hypoglycemia is high insulin and hyperinsulinemia blocks the ability to make glucose in your liver – called glyconeogenesis.
