Your brain and body need constant supply of glucose for its proper functioning. Various symptoms may develop because of hypoglycemia during pregnancy. General harmful symptoms:
  • Common symptoms: palpitations, pale skin, fatigue, anxiety, shakiness, hunger, sweating, irritability, crying during sleep, and tingling around mouth.
  • More severe symptoms: confusion or abnormal behavior, such as female may be unable to complete even routine tasks, blurred vision, seizures and loss of consciousness.
Specific harmful symptoms:
  • Developmental abnormalities: hypoglycemia can cause the baby to have smaller size, optic nerve malformation, heart abnormalities, and abnormalities in the development of retina.
  • Low birth weight: hypoglycemia in pregnancy is often associated with low birth weight, thus all developmental milestones such as teething, bladder control, independent walking and sitting, and speech development would be delayed.
  • Long-term effects: hypoglycemia in pregnant women puts the unborn child at increased risk of having cognitive deficits, hypertension, coronary artery disease and diabetes. It may also lead to failure of pancreas during adulthood.
  • Hypoglycemic unawareness: this condition is more common in those with type 1 and 2 diabetes for a long time or in pregnant women. In its worst form, it can lead to loss of consciousness, coma or even death.

Generally, overuse of zinc-containing denture adhesives could lead to excessive zinc in the body, causing nerve damage, especially in the hands and feet.

Acute adverse effects of high zinc intake include nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and headaches. Chronic effects include low copper status, altered iron function, reduced immune function, and reduced levels of high-density lipoproteins.
Leg cramps are frequently associated with calcium deficiency. However, the exact cause could not be determined frequently.

Constipation could be alleviated with dietary fiber, bulk-forming and lubricant laxatives, and stool softeners.
