Hypoglycemia

Question from San Rafael, California, USA:

Is a hypoglycemic seizure just like an epileptic seizure? That is: Does the person yell and feel like they are swallowing their tongue? Do eyes roll back? Do they shake? Etc.?

Answer:

There are many types of seizures, and it is not possible to diagnose hypoglycemia on the basis of any special characteristic of an episode.
