Q:

What causes hypoglycemia?

A:

Hypoglycemia is low blood sugar, and there are a few simple things that cause it. You either have too much medication (or insulin) in your body, not enough food in your body, or you exerted yourself physically without the right preparation of food and insulin to fuel your exercise. This can cause your blood sugar to lower and you can experience some uncomfortable side effects from this drop.

Q:

What medications are used for chronic pain?

A:

There are a few classes of drugs used to treat chronic pain. One of them is analgesics, to provide pain relief. These range from acetaminophen all the way up to heavier pain control agents. Some antidepressants are useful in relieving chronic pain, and anticonvulsants may be used to treat nerve-related pain. Finally, a class of medications called cannabinoids, which may include medicinal marijuana, is sometimes used to control pain. You should speak with your doctor if you have questions about your pain management plan.

Q:

Glucides sains pour le contrôle glycémique

A:

Les glucides comprennent l’amidon, le sucre et les fibres. On peut les trouver sous différentes formes d’aliments, par exemple, dans la famille des féculents comme les produits céréaliers, les fruits, certains légumes et les produits laitiers et le lait. Il y a aussi une autre sorte d’aliments, que l’on va nommer « autres » où l’on retrouve des glucides, comme dans les biscuits, les bonbons et le sucre.
