Is it all right to have low blood sugar? Isn't hypoglycemia a separate disease?

Is it all right to having low blood sugar?

No. Low blood sugar can be very hazardous for a diabetic because you become irritable, befuddled, uncoordinated, and, in extreme cases, unconscious. Usually only insulin-taking diabetics experience low blood sugar, although non-insulin takers who are losing weight sometimes have periods of low blood sugar or, as it's also called, hypoglycemia.

It's both a condition and a disease. As a disease, hypoglycemia is almost the opposite of diabetes. The pancreas produces too much insulin, which causes the blood sugar to plummet. Strangely enough, hypoglycemia can be a precursor of diabetes.
