In brief: It should not

When your pancreas and liver are functioning properly, fasting should not cause hypoglycemia.
If fasting causes hypoglycemia in you, you should be seen by your endocrinologist for further evaluation. Frequently we find there wasn't true hypoglycemia and something else was happening.
