Hypoglycaemia

exercise for the brain?

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Low blood sugar, or hypoglycaemia, is detected by specialised sugar sensing neurones in the brain. However, the detection of hypoglycaemia is blunted after repeated hypoglycaemia and this is a result of adaptive mechanisms kicking in within the brain; mechanisms that resemble the training effect in muscle. These adaptations most likely not only increase the tolerance of the brain to stress, but also perturb the detection of hypoglycaemia, further increasing the likelihood of hypoglycaemia.
