Brief Answer:
About hypoglycemia;

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!

If you have symptoms of hypoglycemia (feeling hungry, sweating, weakness etc) that improve after taking glucose, you need to check the blood glucose at that moment (try to keep a glucometer with you). If it is under 70 mg/dl, some further investigations are needed to find the cause of hypoglycemia.

Otherwise, if the glucose level is over 70 mg/dl, hypoglycemia is not the cause of your symptoms and other pathologies should be found.

Hope the information will help. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta
