Highly varied causes of hypoglycemia can iccur across life's duration, but usually when a non physician speaks of spontaneoushypogly they mean something else.

In brief: Yes

Because adrenaline is released when hypoglycemia occurs, it can cause symptoms at any age.
It can cause irritability, aggression, temper and lack of focus. An adult may have better control over those symptoms than a child so the symptoms may appear less in an adult. Hypoglycemia can manifest as abuse in adults.
