It can happen for several reasons, such as, your diet, the amount of exercise or activity you have had or because of the medications you take. Generally, when the blood sugar level drops to around 70 mg / dl, you will feel the symptoms of hypoglycemia. When the symptoms occur, it is important to note the time at which it occurs, what you ate, what activities you did that day and the amount of medication you took. It is also important to consult your doctor, so that your doctor can adjust your medication or tweak the amount of activity or direct you to a nutritionist, who can help you with the right diet.
