It's glyburide - yes it's normal and can happen. Your dr/nutritionist should have given you some information on hypoglycemia - you need to look up some info on it if you don't have any. Since you are on meds, you will need to keep something with you at all times to treat hypoglycemia. The list of foods my dr gave me as having the right amount of carbs (10-15 grams) to treat hypoglyemia are : 1/2-3/4 cup orange juice (juice box is good when you are away from home), 2-4 pieces hard candy, 5 gumdrops, 1-2 tablespoons honey, 6 oz regular (not diet) soda (about 1/2 can), or 2 tablespoons of cake icing. It is very important to NOT keep eating sugary foods, even though you may continue to feel hungry for up to 20 minutes. You can sip milk or eat a protein snack such as nuts or cheese while you wait to feel better.
