Non-diabetic hypoglycemia is a condition where the sugar (glucose) in your blood falls too low. It can happen in people who do not have diabetes. Two types of non-diabetic hypoglycemia are lean hypoglycemia and reactive hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia on an empty stomach often occurs after a person is left without food for 8 hours or longer. Reactive hypoglycemia usually occurs about 2-4 hours after a meal. With low blood sugar levels, muscles and brain cells don't have enough energy to work properly, says Dr. Slinkin.

FBS Denis Slinkin

Blood tests are done to measure blood sugar levels. These tests can also be done to find the cause of your hypoglycemia.

Rapid tests can be done. You can do a test at a night fast or a 72-hour fast. After the nightly fast, your blood sugar level will be tested twice. At the 72-hour fasting you will not be given food FBS for 72 hours. During this time, the doctors will check if your blood sugar level has fallen to a certain level.
