In brief: Blood sugars
Hypoglycemia means low blood sugar so you have to have blood sugar levels to make the diagnosis.
Sometimes a single determination can suffice but it might require a glucose tolerance test to detect reactive hypoglycemia.

In brief: Depends
On whether fasting or after eating.
Talk to your doctor to determine if you actually have "hypoglycemia".
