In brief: If as an adult
In adults low blood sugar can be cause by excessive secretion of Insulin or lack of secretion of the hormones that keep your blood sugar up when you are fasting, which are, cortisol, glucagon and growth hormone.
In a baby all these plus many congenital metabolic problems that interfere with glucose (sugar) production. If you are overweight it might be pre- diabetes.
