What should I expect when I see my doctor about my hypoglycemia?

If you see your doctor about hypoglycemia symptoms, you should be prepared to talk about your symptoms and your medical history. It will be very helpful if you have a written record of your symptoms, how frequent they are, and what seems to trigger them. If you have diabetes, your doctor will want to discuss your treatment plan in detail. You may be asked to have a blood test, with or without fasting, to confirm your hypoglycemia.
