In brief: No

In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia.
The disorder doesn't exist, if they're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal. If your friend has diabetes and is low due to medication, 8 oz of skim milk or juice or 2 quick dissolving glucose tablets can be used and recheck in 15 min. Only trying to get back to 70.
