Hi,

In my opinion you can take water with sugar dissolved in it or Glucose powder dissolved in water and check your glucose level after 30 minutes.

If you feel any symptoms like dizziness etc you should visit E.R.

Hypoglycemia can be life threatening and you require medical attention immediately.

I hope this helps
