Endocrinologist: Glucagon levels( 50-100) are rarely ordered unless a patient has wide fluctuations in blood sugar or has problems with recurrent hypoglycemia. I imagine your levels fluctuate and would be elevated during episodes of hypoglycemia. I'm unsure as to the significance of a low level of glucagon is in a nondiabetic person. An endocrinologist is best qualified to answer your question,however.
