In brief: Treat hypoglycemia

Follow the 15-15-15 rule: check the sugar when you feel it is low.
Once confirmed low, eat 15 gram carbohydrates (4 glucose tablets or 200 ml milk or 100 ml juice), recheck the sugar in 15 minutes. Once it has risen by 15 mg/dl go ahead and eat a regular meal. Update your doctor right away so they can review your medications.
