is it possible for a person having a low blood sugar to go into a fit of rage and then not remember what happen to start the rage or what happen during the episode? Can this be medically proven, if their sugar is in the 50's or lower? This is the 2nd time in 20 years that it has happened. How can it be prevented? are their symptoms before the rage that happen?
Please help me!
Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem concerned by the symptoms of rage and amnesia (loss of memory) associated with hypoglycemia.
You have also made a mention of diabetes and using insulin for the management of the same.
Rage and amnesia are the symptoms associated with hypoglycemia due to neuroglycopenia. Hypoglycemia is known complication in diabetics on insulin.
The risk of further episodes of diabetic hypoglycemia can often (but not always) be reduced by lowering the dose of insulin or other medications, or by more meticulous attention to blood sugar balance during unusual hours, higher levels of exercise, or alcohol intake.
You must consult your physician for definitive management as the same is not possible online.
Hope this helps. Take care.
