In brief: 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.
