In brief: Can be helpful

Hypoglycemia, the condition at which low blood sugar becomes a medical problem (leading to symptoms such as hunger, dizziness, weakness, sweating, tremors, palpitations and even coma or seizures, etc), occur at different levels in different people, usually <70 mg/dl.
A glucose monitor measures blood sugar, thereby helping to determine whether your symptoms are possibly related to hypoglycemia.
