sugar level

A friend''s sugar level recently dropped to one. Out of interest''s sake, I was wondering if this was very dangerous. (She saw her doctor, but was not admitted to hospital.) Thanks. J.

Hallo J
If you are a diabetic, you can go into a coma if your sugar level drops too low (usually due to medication) but it almost never happen in healthy people. Non diabetics would just feel sweaty, tired and have tremors and palpitations but it won't be dangerous.
