I hardly ever get signs or symptoms when I'm under 60. Even when I'm under 50, I most of the time don't know that I am until I check my blood glucose and find out that way. Why is this happening?

Your body needs 2200 kcals / day - all Calories are kilo Calories. So a poor breakfast, an upset with loose motion stomach will reduce the BS. Also every morning is low BS as you are fasting for 8-10 hours since Dinner/supper so you need a sweet Bed Tea. Please see below of my experience last year. Read Wikipedia or Search Engine to find Calories per gram of types of food viz. Carbohydrates, Proteins, Fats and Alcohol and so balance your diet - try LCHF diets to match your tastes - avoid wheat & products which has Glycomet a protein which accumulates fat leading to overweight - I have shifted to rice TRY

Sounds like you are hypo unaware. That started happening to me. Probably caused by too many lows. I got a dexcom CGM and it has been a life saver. Maybe you can look into getting one.

Dear Mandy1985,
Dual Vision / Blurred Vision / Faltered steps / Swaying walk are the 1st symptoms of Low Sugar below 65 mcg/dl. Since your body needs 2200 kcals/day to breath, heart beat any exercise will make you faint with inability to swallow,. intra-venous injection of dextrose is the only way to revive a fainted hypo-glycamaic person each trial will be eating into the low BS level further .

The first symptom of Hypoglycemia is blurred or dual image vision - a Brisk Pace will make your steps falter making you sway. Keep candies in your bag - pockets don't RISK any delay or exercise as your body needs 2200 cal to keep you breathing- any activity will cause fainting. Heavy B'Fast with Bed Tea is essential to keep you fit

Do you know what your "normal" reading is ?
I guess what is the most common reading that you get?

Hi Kimfing, I'm a hypoglycemic have been sice 2007. What is a cgm? I've never heard of it. I'll have to talk to my diabetic dr about getting one of these for myself.

Some people don't get signs. It's called "unawareness". I don't know why it happens, but often people who have a lot of lows get used to the feeling and the body doesn't seem to alert you. How do you find out you are low?
