Can you be diabetic and hypoglycemic at the same time?

What causes hypoglycemia in people with diabetes?
Diabetes Medications
Hypoglycemia can occur as a side effect of some diabetes medications, including insulin and oral diabetes medications—pills—that increase insulin production, such as

chlorpropamide (Diabinese)
glimepiride (Amaryl)
glipizide (Glucotrol, Glucotrol XL)
glyburide (DiaBeta, Glynase, Micronase)
nateglinide (Starlix)
repaglinide (Prandin)
sitagliptin (Januvia)

yes because hypoglycemia is low blood sugars. I have high and low blood sugars and I am definetely a diabetic. Hope this helps. Good luck. Juliep.

I've never heard of it. I'm just hypoglycemic.

What I've heard of with diabetics is that if they take their insulin incorrectly or if they don't eat right, they can temporarily experience low blood sugar. But they can't be a hypoglycemic.

As a diabetic, if you take insulin, or other meds, sometimes it can lower your blood sugar too much. That is the only way that you could be hypoglycemic as well as a diabetic. My husband is a diabetic and just a few times it got a bit low. Check your blood sugar often, and if you have too many lows, or highs, talk to your endocrinologist.

Well, if you're diabetic, you can experience occasional times of being hypoglycemic, but you cannot actually have the entire disease. Diabetes is a cross between hypoglycemia(low blood sugars) and hyperglycemia(high blood sugars).

Yes, actually.
There are other causes of hypoglycemia than medication or lack of food in a diabetic. The same conditions that can affect a nondiabetic without hyperinsulineamia can happen to a diabetic - reactive hypoglycemia, fasting hypoglycemia, other hormone problems besides insulin (which includes those hormones that become elevated during prolonged stress), the development of enzyme problems of the liver, severe illnesses (like septicemia), and some types of tumors. The number of people affected (both diabetic and nondiabetic) may be small, but they do exist. I am one of them.

A person who is on insulin and certain drugs can experience hypoglycemia if they do not eat the right amount of food or take to much insulin but it is only temporary

People who have miscalculated their insulin dosages/timings can easily become hypoglycaemic. This is also true for those controlling their diabetes with tablets.

Everyone's hypo level is not identical. Someone with diabetes can experience symptoms of hypoglycaemia at a blood sugar reading a non-diabetic individual would feel fine.

Mr. Peachy®
Yes. Many type two diabetics like myself experience episodes of low blood sugar (without taking insulin injections). We are not chronically hypoglycemic, though (obviously). It's because of a condition called hyperinsulinemia, where we can occasionally experience a low blood sugar episode.
