Weak heart: Congestive heart failure needs to be ruled out. Kidney failure is also possible with long standing diabetes. Blood clots in the legs, excessive salt intake, poor blood pressure control, low Albumin levels need to be considered.

If sepsis is a bacteria in the bloodstream can it happen when you have a blood transfusion or kidney removal or how does sepsis get in the blood?

Yes: It should never happen with a blood transfusion, but if there is serious negligence in the handling of the blood, then it could. Similarly with removal of a kidney, unless the harvesting is done under unhygienic conditions, it should not happen. When the bacteria overwhelm the body's defenses, it makes it to the blood stream.

A Few Things: Low blood sugar and low blood pressure can be seen together in patients with sepsis, an addisonian crisis, some other things. The 2 don't necessarily go hand in hand. People with diabetes and other metabolic conditions will often have low blood sugar, but normal blood pressure. There are other conditions where blood pressure is low and sugars are normal like pots, etc.
