  3. I was diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia a few years ago. Recently, my blood sugars have been somewhat elevated, but then drop a bit. Is this normal? (15 Aug 2008)

  16. Last night, my son's bedtime blood sugar was 140 mg/dl [7.8 mmol/L], but dropped to 40 mg/dl [2.2 mmol/L] 30 minutes later. Is a drop like this "normal?" (10 Mar 2008)
