Not low blood sugar: Nope. That's stone-cold normal. Are you diabetic or obese? Unless you're on Insulin (or a few other drugs) for diabetes, hypoglycemia is very, very rare, and usually due to an insulin-producing tumor in the pancreas. "Hypoglycemia" used to be a common fad diagnosis, but it isn't a real diagnosis in those cases, and those people's symptoms have nothing to do with blood sugar levels. Look elsewhere!
