Anxiety Cause Revealed



In my September 28th post I shared how hormone imbalances can be an anxiety cause.  The last month or so I had been experiencing a bit of anxiety again. Not panic attacks, just waves of anxiety now and then along with the wonderful feeling of spaciness.  So, I went to the doc and promised to share the findings.

About a week ago I received a call with the results.  Hormones were perfect!  I was delighted because I had been working on balancing my hormones for years. However, that meant the hormones weren’t causing anxiety.  About a month prior test results came back saying my neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) were balanced too. Now what?  Then the doc said, “Did you know your blood sugar was only 58?”.

Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) strikes again.   Often, along with adrenal fatigue comes erratic blood sugar levels and insulin resistance.  When my blood sugar levels plummet, I feel very anxious, spacey, and get strange thoughts.  This is due to the lack of glucose in my brain as well as the rush of adrenalin my adrenals put out to raise up blood sugar levels.

I will soon post more on one of the #1 anxiety causes – hypoglycemia.  For now, I must keep checking my blood sugar levels with my handy glucometer, eating every few hours, and strengthening my adrenals.  Adrenal fatigue and blood sugar problems are all part of the anxiety web.  I love that eating more food is part of my anxiety therapy!

    I hear ya on this one. I too recently went to the doc for one situation that was causing anxiety (so I thought) and found out that I too suffered from High Blood Sugars all the way to Low Low Blood Sugars (aka….diabetes for me).
    I too check my blood sugars now every couple of hours as well.
    You pointed out an interestng fact about the adrenals and blood sugar (I knew, but forgot).
    If I recall, you said Corriander Oil was great for the adrenals. Can you confirm? Also, should the oil be applied to the adrenal area?

    I’m finding out that everyone has their “feel good” sugar level. Do you know what yours is? I am still trying to figure mine out.

    Thanks for continuing to update this great website.

    Thanks so much for sharing this Jen, I have this too and it’s reassuring to know that I’m not the only one. I had to convince my doctor that my blood sugar was causing my anxiety and have the spaciness too. I really enjoy receiving your updates, thanks!

    Yes Dana you are correct, coriander is great for balancing the blood sugar. It has also helped the anxiety because it helps the blood sugar!
