Low Blood Sugar (Hypoglycemia)

Hypoglycemia is a blood glucose (blood sugar) level below normal.  Sometimes it is called low blood sugar or insulin reaction. 

A person with diabetes taking insulin is at risk for hypoglycemia, usually when the blood glucose is less than 70 mg / dL. Check with your healthcare provider or diabetes educator for specific guidelines.
