The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more

If you have low blood sugar do not drive - have someone take you! ...Read more
Depends on what drug: Hi. That totally depends on what drug(s) you're being treated with. I'm gonna go out on a limb and presume you're a diabetic. If you're on insulin, it's easy to get hypoglycemic, especially if you're type 1. If you're type 2 on any combination of metformin, a GLP-1 drug, a DPP4 inhibitor, an SGLT2 inhibitor, it's hard to get too low; insulin easy, sulfonylurea drug possible but not super easy. ...Read more
You don't have it: In addition, in my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to you sugar returning to normal. A glucose tolerance test (if you've had one) is not and never will be a valid diagnostic test for hypoglycemia. Low glucose only ocurrs when treating diabetes, cancer, renal/liver disease. ...Read more
