  • I know it's scary. It was even worse when I first got diagnosed. The doctor who diagnosed it never really told me what to do for it. I have had to do a LOT of research on my own. There are good websites out there. The most useful thing that I have learned in my research is that I should be eating like a diabetic. It seems to work well if I do that.

  • My blood sugar has fallen to 36. It was the scariest moment of my life. I should have been in the hospital in a comma at that point.

  • I have hypoglycemia and mine has fallen to 40 at it's lowest. I was in the hospital in a comatose state.

  • I don't have low blood sugar diagnosed but I do know that mine falls low.
    I had stomach surgery and whenever I eat too much carbs, I get like a low insulin reaction including sweats, dizziness, etc.... so i try and watch the carbs
