Treating Low Blood Sugar - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
This video will teach you how to manage and treat low blood sugar. Please watch the entire video before treating your low blood sugar, or if this is an emergency, start treating your low blood sugar as the video shows you what to do. After you eat food that contains carbohydrates, your body breaks it down into a sugar called glucose. The cells in your body use the sugar to produce the energy they need to function properly. Low blood sugar, called hypoglycemia, happens when the glucose or sugar in your blood drops below normal levels or below the target range set by your doctor. Hypoglycemia may be caused by taking too much insulin or taking too much medication that raises your insulin levels, not eating enough food or waiting too long between meals, exercising too much, or drinking too much alcohol. Each person's reaction to low blood sugar is different. You need to know your own signs and symptoms. Common symptoms of hypoglycemia or low blood sugar include feeling shaky or dizzy, feeling moody or nervous, sweating, hunger, headache, anxiety, confusion, blurred vision, and weakness. If your hypoglycemia is not treated, your blood sugar may drop to a dangerously low level, requiring immediate emergency care. Managing and treating hypoglycemia involves checking your blood sugar and getting it back into your target range with some form of high sugar food or medicine. You will need a blood glucose meter, along with its associated materials and one fast-acting food source, containing 15 to 20 grams of sugar or carbohydrates, such as three or four glucose tablets. If you don't have glucose tablets, you can substitute one of these food sources-- four ounces of juice, a cup of milk, four ounces of regular soda, a tablespoon of sugar, or five small pieces of candy. Step 1. Check your blood sugar level using your glucose meter. Step 2. If your blood sugar is lower than 70 or lower than your target range, eat or drink one fast-acting source of sugar or carbohydrates. Step 3. Wait 15 minutes then check your blood sugar again. Step 4. If your blood sugar is still too low, repeat step 2 and step 3. Then check your blood sugar again. Step 5. After your blood sugar returns to your target range, if you have to wait 30 minutes or more before eating your next meal, eat a snack that contains protein and carbohydrates, such as crackers and peanut butter or half of a ham or turkey sandwich. Otherwise, be sure to follow your normal eating habits or meal plan. If you have treated your low blood sugar twice and your blood sugar remains below 70, call your health care provider right away. You can help prevent hypoglycemia by regularly checking your blood sugar, following your normal meal plan, not skipping meals, keeping a source of fast-acting sugar with you at all times, taking your diabetes medication as prescribed by your doctor, exercising regularly, and carrying and unexpired glucagon emergency kit if prescribed.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."
