Does having low blood sugar necessarily mean something bad?
Patient :If someone has low blood sugar, not diagnosed but obvious, should they go see a doctor? It went away after drinking some orange juice, but my head was fuzzy and I couldn't put words together or make a coherent thought.
Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
We are here to help you.
A normal healthy person doesn't get low blood sugar like this. In case you are taking any medicines or you have any alcohol consumption or jaundice, then you can get low blood sugar.
The symptoms you are describing suggests postural hypotension.
This can occur due to exertion, low blood pressure, skipping meals, prolonged standing.
I would advise you to get your Routine tests done particularly hemoglobin and blood sugar.
Never skip breakfast.
Avoid exertion. Take proper sleep.
Share my opinion with your Doctor.
I hope it helps.
