Not a child, no.  I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia when I was 12 though.  I was told to eat/drink something sugary in the morning after my body had fasted all night because the morning was the worst for me.  Also, small, healthy, and frequent snacks between meals.  If I go longer than like two hours without eating something , I get REALLY sick from the low blood sugar.  Really dizzy, really nauseous, bad headache, rapid heartbeat, etc.

My mom has it.  For some reason, getting plenty of protein helps her.  From what I've read about hypoglycemia, that makes no sense, but it works for her.  Also, like Kendall said, eating frequent small snacks (my mom seldom goes beyond 90 minutes without eating something) helps keep the blood sugar from dipping too low.

I have been diagnosed with it since I was 7. Neither of my kids have it.

 To clarify, I have REACTIVE hypoglycemia.

My son is 6 and we are curious to know if he is or not.  My husband is, but I'm not sure if it's hereditary or not.  We are careful to eat healthy and at consistent intervals throughout the day.  He takes granola bars in his bookbag to school.
