Diabetes is one of the high risk of Kidney Failure. If someone has a history of diabetes, they always have to take some medicines to control the blood sugar level. Long term use of those medicines, especially insulin, which is used to lower blood sugar level will lead to hypoglycemia.

2. Poor appetite

As you know, kidney disease is not a independent problem, which means that this disease will affect other systems and organs. Gastrointestinal tract is easy to be damaged when wastes and toxins invade. That’s why many people with kidney disease have poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. As a result, they cannot get enough nutrition and calories for the body. Then, less sources for generation of sugar causes hypoglycemia. This is the most common cause of low blood sugar level in Kidney Failure.
