Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
The condition of low blood sugar levels (<70 g / dL) is called hypoglycemia. Symptoms that often occur include: pale, palpitations, weakness, lethargy, dizziness, anxiety, excessive sweating, blurred vision, convulsions, and even decreased consciousness. Hypoglycemia is an acute complication in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. The causes can vary, including lack of food intake, late eating out of schedule, heavy physical activity without eating enough beforehand, side effects of certain drugs (for example: insulin without adequate food intake), impaired kidney / liver function, tumors which produces excess insulin, to impaired hormonal balance (example: lack of hormones from the adrenal glands).
If hypoglycemia is so severe, late treated, or not treated adequately, hypoglycemia can cause a decrease in consciousness, seizures, to threaten lives. The return of the patient's consciousness is influenced by various factors, including the quality of therapy and the patient's general health condition (eg whether there are other comorbidities). If there are other accompanying diseases (for example: stroke, respiratory infections, impaired kidney function), treatment is also needed to overcome these accompanying diseases.
