General Practice
In brief: Blood Sugar URGENT
One cannot go long without some food intake when one is hypoglycemic and feeling ill.
No one would want to risk brain damage or other physical consequences from a low blood sugar. If you have diabetes and are on treatment you and your care provider should discuss the options and various scenarios to make sure your experience with diabetes leads to good health.
