Can a non-diabetic person have a low sugar level?

Q: I am 25 years old and just married. The other day I fainted and started sweating. The doctors told me that I have a low sugar level. A glucose test was done. The sugar level after 2 hours of breakfast was below normal. Is this a form of diabetes? Neither of my parents are diabetic. What should I do to stay fit. Will it affect my pregnancy?

A:Getting a low blood sugar level in the absence of diabetes treatment is very unusual and usually indicates either insulin excess (hyperinsulinism) or a pre-diabetic state. Of course you have to be sure that you truly have a low sugar level, which usually means less than 50 mg/dl during symptoms. You need to see an endocrinologist at the earliest.
