In brief: Yes
In a non diabetic person, suspected hypoglycemia needs to be confirmed with a fasting test.
Because of the risks, the test has to done in a hospital, where the patient can be monitored. When and if the blood sugar drops, the Insulin is measured, to understand whether the condition is cause by unregulated Insulin secretion.
