Hypoglycemia

Question from Bronx, New York, USA:

I have been diagnosed with hypoglycemia for about five years now. My father is a diabetic, diagnosed since age 30, and everyone on his side had diabetes. It is safe to say that I will not get diabetes because I suffer from low blood sugar?

Answer:

No, it is not true. You will still need to be screened periodically by your physician.
