Hello

A glucose level of 47 is completely abnormal.

This could represent over treated diabetes.

It could represent reactive hypoglycemia.

It could represent a rare type of tumor.

You should see an internal medicine doctor immediately.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

I have no idea why they would not tell you.

Even if you did not eat all day it should not be this low.

Under 70 is abnormal.
