In brief: Hypoglycemia

Hypoglycemia is medical term for low blood sugar.
If you're otherwise healthy, and don't take any medications to purposefully lower your blood sugar, your body will usually adjust glucose (sugar) production to keep you from experiencing low blood sugar. Diabetes mellitus leads to high sugars. Excessively low sugars only come about b/c taking medication usually insulin or sulfonylureas w/o eating.
