Thank the sweet heavens for PubMed taking the initiative to further delve into a clinical explanation as to why people who have Type 1 diabetes get moody when their blood sugar drops. I tried my best to explain in a YouTube video why I turn into a demonic force when my blood sugar gets low but PubMed does a better job. As science explains it, it’s called FOH or fear of hypoglycemia. Many of us know the physical effects of low blood sugar as clamminess, shaking, and disorientation but the emotional, social, and behavioral implications of insulin-induced hypoglycemia are just as important, if not more. This blog is also for you, people who love people with diabetes. Insulin is a hormone and it’s an immense factor in our behavior. This video explains in-depth how blood sugar is the kingpin of how we act emotionally, behaviorally, and socially. I enjoy making videos again helping to enrich others on the lessons in life with diabetes. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I enjoy making them. Please subscribe to join me. Also, share this story with someone who needs to understand why when you’re under the influence of too much insulin, you can be short-tempered. You’re welcome.
