For mild hypoglycemia, the first step is to raise your blood sugar to a normal level. This may involve eating a sugary food or taking a glucose tablet. The next step is to determine the cause of the hypoglycemia, and treat that cause. If medications are causing your symptoms, an adjustment of your dosage may be appropriate. If you have a tumor, surgical treatment may be necessary. In addition, your doctor may recommend a special diet or exercise regimen to help you control your blood sugar.
