The National Health Service UK describes hypoglycaemia (also spelled hypoglycemia or hypoglycaemia) as an abnormally low level of sugar (glucose) in the blood. When the glucose level is too low, the body does not have enough energy to carry out its activities.
The most common forms of hypoglycemia occur as a complication of treatment of diabetes mellitus with insulin or oral medications. Hypoglycemia is less common in non-diabetic persons, but can occur at any age. Among the causes are excessive insulin produced in the body (hyperinsulinemia), inborn error of metabolism, medications and poisons, alcohol, hormone deficiencies, prolonged starvation, alterations of metabolism associated with infection, and organ failure.This image is part of a 3D animation project aimed towards healthcare professionals and parents whose children suffers from a condition called hyperinsulinism
