     Sugar is a kind of carbohydrate that is used by organisms to store energy.

There are two main types of simple sugars:
1:  Glucose
2:  Fructose

The two main types of sugar are white and brown sugar. 

1:  White sugar is commonly known as “table sugar,” which is used in most households to make food. Brown sugar has some surface molasses syrup.
2:  Brown sugar is used for foods that are thicker and denser such as cookies, cakes and pies.

     Medically reviewed that every cell in your body needs energy to function. The main source of energy might come as a surprise: It’s sugar, also known as glucose. Blood sugar is essential to proper brain, heart, and digestive function. It even helps keep your skin and vision healthy.
When your blood sugar levels fall below the normal range, it’s called Hypoglycemia .

There are many identifiable symptoms of low blood sugar.

1.  Emotional Instability:
Mood swings and sudden emotional episodes not typical of your normal behavior are among the neurological symptoms of hypoglycemia, including irrational outbursts, random or hysterical crying, uncontrollable anger, and a strong desire to be left alone. Mild mood changes that may not be as severe, such as general irritability or becoming easily annoyed, can also be a signal that your blood sugar may be dropping.

2.  Feelings of Anxiety:
When glucose levels fall too low, your body tells the adrenal glands to release the hormone epinephrine (also called adrenaline), which signals the liver to make more sugar. The excess epinephrine creates an "adrenaline rush," which can cause feelings of

3.  Restless Nights:
Nocturnal hypoglycemia, which is very common, can cause a number of sleep disturbances. "Symptoms include night sweats, nightmares, episodes of waking suddenly and crying out, and feelings of unrest and confusion upon waking," says Palinski-Wade. "A snack before bed can reduce the frequency and severity of sleep disturbances."

4.  Shakes and Tremors:
The central nervous system starts to malfunction when glucose levels are off balance. As a result, it releases catecholamine, chemicals that encourage glucose production and also produce these symptoms.

5.  Ravenous Hunger:
If you've already eaten but still aren't satisfied, or if you suddenly, inexplicably feel as if you're starving, your body is signaling that it needs more glucose. Work with your healthcare team to determine the exact amount of sugar your body needs.

6.  Sweating:
This symptom is controlled by the autonomic nervous system — the part of the central nervous system that governs the skin, among other things — and is usually one of the first signs of hypoglycemia. The excessive perspiration comes on without warning, regardless of how warm or cold the external temperature may be.

7.  Slurred Speech:
Your sugar-starved brain may not allow you to detect a change in how you sound, but other people will likely notice a difference. To someone else, you may sound as though you've had a few too many cocktails, even though you haven't touched a drop.

8.  Wandering:
 Thoughts Because the brain is especially sensitive to a drop in glucose, you may experience a sense of confusion and an inability to concentrate on one thing at a time.

9.  Vision Problems:
If your vision suddenly becomes blurry or you see double, a drop in blood sugar may be to blame.

10.  Dizziness and Light-headedness:
If you experience these common symptoms of hypoglycemia, heed them and treat the hypoglycemia quickly. Dropping blood sugar levels can also cause you to faint, so if you feel yourself start to swoon, sit or lie down immediately to avoid injuring yourself.
