In brief: Hypoglycemic seizure

The most common type of seizure that a diabetic can have is one set off by a low blood sugar, usually below 40 mg/dl.
A diabetic is usually somewhat aware of events and people around them while they are experiencing a seizure and may be able to ask for help. In an epileptic seizure there is usually no awareness of events during the convulsion. Diabetic seizures range from mild to severe.
