How is reactive hypoglycemia formally diagnosed? Can a gp do this or is a specialist needed?

In brief: Gp first

First thing is to document a low blood sugar during time of symptoms of low blood sugar (weakness, shakes, fast heart rate).
A discussion with your gp first it the next step. You can discussion where when you get low sugar and maybe confirming it with a glucometer.
