Is there is diffrent between hypo/hyperglycemia and high /low blood sugar? Someone told there is special odor, is that right?

No special odor. Hi. hypo/hyperglycemia and high/low blood sugar are just different terms for the same thing. Glycemia = blood sugar, hypo = low, and hyper = high. You know your blood sugar by testing, not by smell. There is a smell that trained diabetic service dogs can distinguish, but not one we humans can. Control your diabetes tightly to prevent long term complications. Good luck!
