Abstract

This presentation reviews how concussions can impact the symptoms and every day lifestyle of a collegiate volleyball player with hypoglycemia. While working with the volleyball team, it was easy to keep up with the individual's every day activities and symptoms. This is an important problem to be aware of in the physically active because it is often overlooked. It is essential to be aware of these things because not knowing how to manage it could be detrimental to the athlete's well-being. This project looks into if the impact of a concussion makes the symptoms of hypoglycemia more pronounced or if they stay the same. It is hoped that with this presentation that, practitioners and patients will be more aware of this condition and how to monitor it.
