Is hypoglycemia a form of diabetes? And how can I tell if I have it? Also how do I know what my normal blood sugar is and what is too low? Whenever my sugar gets into the 70s I get really shakey, hot, dizzy, faint feeling, weak, slightly blurred vision, headaches, and so on. Is this a sign that I may have hypoglycemia?

Hi there and thanks for the question and my apologies for the delayed response! Unfortunately I am not a medical professional, I did however find an article that may help answer your question but as always it is a good idea to consult this with your doctor. Hope this helps! http://www.diabetes.org/living-with-diabetes/treatment-and-care/blood-glucose-control/hypoglycemia-low-blood.html
