Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How does BrainGlucoseTM (BG) work?
Why do most low blood sugar level and nightmares or related symptoms occur between 2-4 am?
Without continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), how do people know they suffer from low blood sugar during sleep?
Why do Alzheimer’s patients without diabetes (DM) have those symptoms (nightmares, night sweats, etc.) also?
While many seniors with type 2 DM end up with dementia, some AD patients without DM still lack glucose in their brain during night. We first raised this issue on the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) in 2013 in Boston. Recent years more studies proved this, such as the research publication by the medical school of Temple University in Philadelphia (1/31/2017, we have no affiliation with them).
What will happen without taking BrainGlucose for those symptoms?
Diabetics: for younger patients, their hormone rescue system may react vigorously to cause seizures or coma; while for seniors, their memory may decay gradually to become Alzheimer’s disease eventually.
For cancer patients on Chemo therapy: since their digestion systems are compromised by Chemo agents, they cannot absorb nutrients for overnight energy supply. Luckily, glucose is the only ready energy supply without digestion needed. Eliminating nightmares and night sweats can improve patients’ overall mood and confidence during this critical therapy.
Other patients: as long as the symptoms are similar, BG can provide the same results and help, such as for some Parkinson disease patients.
