If you have diabetes, you may experience low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) if there's too much insulin and not enough sugar in your blood. You may develop hypoglycemia from taking too much diabetes medication or insulin, exercising more than usual or skipping a meal. You can determine if you have low blood sugar by using a blood glucose meter.
Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland at the base of your neck that regulates metabolism. Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland malfunctions and overproduces the hormone thyroxine. This condition can make patients suddenly lose weight, as they burn calories extremely fast.
