Low blood sugar can result in weakness, confusion, headache, irritability, excessive hunger, excessive sweating or fatigue.
The normal range of blood sugar is 80 - 120 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter) in the morning (after fasting for at least 8 hours). Normally, if the level drops below 70 mg/dL, the person is said to suffer from hypoglycemia or low blood sugar levels.
You may experience trembling and if your blood sugar still drops down, you could have a seizure. Increasing glucose intake, like drinking fruit juice, can help raise your blood glucose.
The ideal blood glucose levels range for you may be different from another person's and the level of glucose in blood would keep on changing throughout the day.
Similarly, the point at which the severe effects of insufficient blood sugar would be experienced may vary from person to person.
For some, sugar level below 70 mg/dL can be hypoglycemic, while for others the 'trigger point' can be at 60 mg/dL.
So, you need to consult your doctor about how much of blood sugar should be running, to keep you safe. He will tell you what blood sugar range is normal for you.
