Hypoglycemia simply means low blood sugar. Diabetes is the opposite: high blood sugar, or hyperglycemia.
Hypoglycemia was officially “discovered” by Dr. Seale Harris in 1924. The condition was at first called hyperinsulinism, and it was considered to be caused by too much insulin in the blood, Excessive insulin burned more sugar than was necessary and caused an excessive drop in the blood sugar level. In diabetes, too little insulin is produced, which results in too much sugar staying in the bloodstream for too long. In simple terms, an overactive pancreas (where insulin is produced) is blamed for low blood sugar.
Some of the reasons why we suffer from a drop in our blood sugar are:
