From Campton, Kentucky, USA:

Can your blood sugar go low enough to go into the same kind of coma that a person with diabetes can go into even if you don't have diabetes?


People who don't have diabetes don't typically have hypoglycemia. There are medications and even poisons that can cause hypoglycemia that could result in a coma if taken improperly.
