If you are controlling by diet and exercise, and things have been really good, you can still go too low. I never was sure until today, when I had a few awful dizzy spells, only an hour and a half or two hours after eating! I just want everyone who is not on pills or insulin, to be aware of this. I wasn't. When I was in class, I was on pills at the time, and I never asked my doctor or diabetes educator that question. I asked that question on here a long time ago, and got different answers, some said no, i would not have to worry, others said yes, it could go very low and cause problems. You need to always make sure to have some juice or glucose tabs with you at all times, wherever you go.
