Hypoglycemia

Recently I was having symptoms of hypoglycemia so took my blood sugar, and it was 55 mg/dl [3.1 mmol/L]. I drank orange juice, ate cookies, and, 30 minutes later, my sugar was 137 mg/dl [7.6 mmol/L]. Two hours after the snack, my sugar was 92 mg/dl [5.1 mmol/L]. I do not have diabetes. Should I be concerned?
