An abnormally low level of glucose (sugar) in the blood; usually resulting from excessive insulin or a poor diet.

Hypoglycemia may be tolerated by normally healthy people for short periods of time, but if the blood sugar level remains very low for a long time, there are often effects on the brain, with development of mental confusion, hallucinations, convulsions, and eventually deep coma as the nervous system is deprived of the glucose needed for its normal metabolic activities.

Additional conditions can cause hypoglycemia; such as, overproduction of insulin by the pancreas, an overdose of therapeutic insulin, certain types of abdominal or pancreatic tumors, and the deficient production of adrenocortical hormones, especially the glucocorticoids (a steroid hormone that is produced by the adrenal cortex of animals which affects the functioning of the gonads and has an anti-inflammatory activity).
