Diagnosis and Symptoms

Question from Mesa, Arizona, USA:

Is it possible for hypoglycemia to turn into diabetes? My mother developed diabetes at age 25. I am 18 years old and have hypoglycemia. Are my chances greater of getting diabetes because of my hypoglycemia?

Answer:

Low blood sugars may be a relatively late symptom of prediabetes due to inappropriate release of insulin from damaged beta cells. Ask your doctors for further tests.
