Dysglycemia is a broad term that refers to an abnormal in irregular blood sugar. This can include hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) or hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) – and often both. Blood sugar is regulated through insulin. Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas. Insulin helps cells in your body take in glucose (sugar) to use for energy. Another important organ for blood sugar regulation is the liver. Excess glucose is stored in the liver in the form of glycogen. When blood sugar drops, your liver breaks down glycogen into glucose, and releases it into your bloodstream. This helps your body to maintain relatively stable blood sugar levels throughout the day. Dysglycemia occurs when this system doesn’t work correctly, leading to unstable blood sugar throughout the day, which can lead to various symptoms and serious metabolic disorders like type 2 diabetes.
