Hello,
Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
How frequently does it happen?
Did you take test in Lab?
Did you have any symptom when the sugar level was 65 mg/dl?
How is your daily calorie intake?

First time

home device of my friend

I did 3 months ago through routine check up of my company was 78 after eating 2 hours >

No symptoms

i ate a cup cake & Latte coffee & my daily carb is low .

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for the information,
Hypoglycemia is usually considered when the blood glucose level falls below 70 mg/ dl.
But in normal person, fasting sugar level can be as low as 60 mg/ dl.
You can read this link on it.
https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003466.htm
As you are taking less calories this can be a cause for low level after 3 hours.
You can take a glucose tolerance test after consulting your doctor if you feel any symptom.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

pls note that i did the test after almost 3 hours & half post my breakfast . ar eyou considering this fasting blood sugar ?

What is the cause of the Hypoglycemia for non diabetic people ?

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.
I am not considering you fasting.
I was trying to give the idea that people may not have any problem at this level.
In your case sustained low calorie diet is the likely cause.
If one takes normal diet & is still hypoglycemic, there can be a few causes.
Those can be insulin secreting tumors, liver disease, reactive hypoglycemia, following bariatric surgery etc.

i did ultra sound 3 weeks ago & it was normal

Pancreas

Liver

Kidneys

spleen

Gall bladder

& i ask this because my breakfast was hight in Carb as ithink (Cupcake fille with Blueberry jam) & Cafe Latte skimmed without sugar >

So should i worry about the list of illness that you have mentioned ot this is can happen to healthy people as well ?

Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.
I feel you need not to worry.
As your tests were normal & you do not have any symptom this level is likely due to low intake of calories over time.
You are not having any symptom suggestive of those illness.
