Hi
Thanks for posting your query.
Low blood sugars indicate either there is reduction in your food intake or the dosage of insulin is high .
I also advise you to get Serum Creatinine which shows the kidney function as decrease in kidney function also causes low blood sugar.
So I advise you to get the test done and revert back . Also make sure you are eating the right amount of calories. And get your insulin dosage corrected by your doctor.
I find this answer helpful
