Answered by Dr. Sandip Kabra 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
Giddiness, sweating, fine tremors

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for choosing healthcare magic,

Blood Sugar less than 60 mg/dl is towards hypoglycemia.

Initial symptoms in mild to moderate cases are :

Giddiness, sweating, fine tremors of hands, palpitations, excess hunger, anxiety etc

And if sugar goes below 30 to 40 mg/dl, then symptoms like

mental confusion,
severe giddiness,
person may become unconscious,

And still if left untreated then coma or death can occur.

Hope this helps.Let me know if you want more help.
