In brief: No
A full glucose tolerance test is not necessary to determine hypoglycemia that occurs as an isolated incident that involves reduced food intake.
For the most common type, reactive hypoglycemia, a glucose tolerance test is the best way to make the diagnosis.

In brief: No
It depends if it occurs after eating or fasting.
Most GTT tests do not really evaluate "hypoglycemia" go to a real doctor with your symptoms.
