In brief: Cause?

Determine if blood sugar is really low and when does it occur. If true hypoglycemia, your doctor will need to determine the cause.
We often see lowish blood sugars in thin kids who don't have healthy diets. Treatment would be geared toward healthier eating in this case. Less common are certain metabolic disorders which mostly present in babies and children, but a few also manifest in adulthood.
