Signs of Low Blood Glucose
Some possible signs of low blood glucose are feeling nervous, shaky, or sweaty. Sometimes people just feel tired.
The signs may be mild at first. But a low glucose level can quickly drop much lower if you don’t treat it. When your glucose level is very low, you may get confused, pass out, or have seizures.
If you have any signs that your glucose may be low, test it right away. If it’s less than 60 to 70 mg/dL, you need to treat it right away. See below for ways to treat low blood glucose.
Treating Low Blood Glucose
If you feel like your blood glucose is getting too low but you can’t test it right then, play it safe—go ahead and treat it. Eat 10 to 15 grams of carbohydrate right away, or in the case of glucose tablets, eat 3 to 4 tabs.
