You would like to know whether frozen coffee can cause a hypoglycemic attack in persons with a polycystic ovarian syndrome. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a disorder of the ovaries caused by numerous small cysts in both ovaries and is characterized by absent menstruation, infertility, obesity and a distribution of body hair more characteristic of men. A hypoglycemic attack is when the amount of the glucose in the blood is decreased. Hypoglycemia can appear in starvation, hyperinsulinism, excess of growth hormone, etc.
Given your description of hypoglycemia, it doesnât seem likely that the frozen coffee caused the hypoglycemia. You may consider improving your diet and having your meals regularly. If the hypoglycemic attacks appear again you may see an endocrinologist to rule out hyperinsulinism or excessive growth hormone production.
