The Many Ramifications of Subclinical/ Functional Hypoglycemia


A


famous psychiatrist in the US with the busiest such practice for 25 years, stated in an interview that probably 25% of psychiatric illness was undiagnosed “functional” hypoglycemia, which is low blood sugar not associated with a disease state (David Hawkins, MD, PhD, Unified Health, Summer 2008). That opinion was based on 50 years of clinical practice. He went further to suggest that functional hypoglycemia may be the most underdiagnosed condition in the country. Whether that is in fact the case can be debated, but assuming the possibility, why is this perhaps so? I can think of several reasons why blood sugar issues may not show up medically. Diabetes can take years to develop, and in the prediabetic state glucose levels can often be “within normal range”. A glucose tolerance test, while more useful than fasting glucose, may not always reflect a problem (and probably rarely is ordered anyway). When medical screening is normal, bioenergetic screening can help by suggesting correlations with “subclinical” sugar regulatory issues, and, more importantly, can suggest a path of healing for such correlations.


It is not uncommon that people have many symptoms, but no medical diagnosis. This is the ideal scenario for the bioenergetic practitioner who is looking at distortions in the body-field, which may, in some cases, show imbalances prior to the point that medical screening can. This of course makes bioenergetic screening an excellent complement to medical screening. In the case

of subclinical or functional hypoglycemia, the client may be experiencing brain fog, dizziness, depression, fatigue, sleep problems, irritability/ anger, loss of short term memory, headaches and more, but have normal fasting blood glucose.


Why so many possible symptoms? If you look at the famous work on stress by Hans Selye, it is evident that glucose requirements increase when the body is exposed to stressors (whether physical, chemical, or emotional). We are all exposed to stressors on a regular basis, so there is an increased need for a steady supply of glucose. The famous stress hormone, cortisol, is a glucocorticoid hormone released by the adrenals to, among other things, induce the release of glucose (primarily in the form of glycogen from the liver). So, any form of low blood sugar will induce the release of cortisol. Though cortisol is needed, high cortisol is associated with a catabolic state that includes immune suppression and tissue breakdown, and can lead to adrenal gland burnout. If the brain itself is starved of glucose, even subtly, one can understand the correlation to the many cognitive symptoms associated with subclinical hypoglycemia.


For females, in particular, subtle blood sugar dysregulation can lead to many symptoms. This is because of the potential to disrupt hormones. The extreme form of this is called PCOS, or polycystic ovarian syndrome, which is associated with an excessive release of cortisol and androgenic hormones from the adrenal glands. I have seen, anecdotally, what appears in many cases to be subclinical PCOS lead to irregular menstrual cycles, PMS, and infertility.
