Hypoglycemia

Question from Omaha, Nebraska, USA:

I have seen a few stories on animals being able to sense a low blood sugar. Can you tell me if there is a certain breed in particular?

Answer:

I have heard of this as well. Some dogs appear to be acutely aware of behavior changes in humans and can respond to this. However, I have no clue as to what breed or how reliable this is.
