A person with diabetes can become hypoglycemic by taking too much insulin or diabetes medicine or by skipping meals.
Treatment for diabetic hypoglycemia involves eating foods that contain sugar or getting a shot of glucagon, a substance that stimulates the liver to release glucose into the bloodstream.
