What is Hypoglycemia?

Hypoglycemia is a condition of lower-than-normal blood sugar. It is most common among people with diabetes. Although diabetes is a condition with high blood sugar and the goal of diabetes treatment is to lower blood sugar, sometimes blood sugar can dip too low and cause hypoglycemia.
