That's too low. Did you give yourself insulin? You should probably eat something. 70-100 is a normal blood sugar level.

That is way too low. You are probably sweating, shaking and have blurred vision. Go and see your doc asap.

People suggesting you go see your doctor obviously have little idea of dealing with hypoglycemia, which is what you're suffering when your blood glucose is that low.What you need to do is take in something comparatively sweet to immediately push up your blood glucose level. You must then follow up with eating something more substantial to ensure that your blood glucose level doesn't fall back down soon after.It IS normal, when your blood glucose is that low, for your heart to beat faster. It's happening because your body is in a state of emergency, and is struggling to put things right again. Your adrenal glands will release a hormone called epinephrine (adrenaline) which will stimulate your pancreas to release another hormone called glucagon, which in turn stimulates your liver to release some of it's store of glycogen ... the way it stores glucose ... back into your bloodstream.


What is Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make enough insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps your body convert food into energy. Without insulin, glucose (sugar) from the food you eat cannot enter cells. So glucose builds up in the blood. Your body tissue becomes starved for energy.

Type 1 diabetes usually begins in children and young adults. Over the long-term, if type 1 diabetes is not adequately treated, high blood sugar levels can damage the blood vessels, heart, kidneys, eyes, nerves, and other tissues or organs.
