Your blood: Sugar depends upon thousands of things, most of which you cannot control.

Is it possible to feel low energy if you haven't eaten in awhile even if blood sugar level is around 100? Or is 100 enough to power you thru a wrkout?
Your low energy doesn't have anything to do with your blood sugar in this situation, the low energy is because you haven't eaten anything.

Your body is constantly generating and burning glucose. 100 just tells us the balance. Hope this helps. ...Read more

If you're unconscious, someone can give you glucagon or call paramedics. Good luck and be safe! ...Read more

If you have insulin, it's very easy to treat. If you don't, you should get some! Good luck! ...Read more
