How low can blood sugar get before you pass out?
I'm diabetic and have been down to the upper 30's and did not pass out. How low is the pass out range?

depends on your tolerance,
to low sugar,
usally its probaly below

if you are low often, you build up a sort of tolerance and unawareness of low blood sugar. My son got to 29 once, he was delusional and somewhat combative but did not pass out. The scary thing was that he got so low before I noticed anything was wrong and he did not feel that he was going low before that. Happily I could get his glucose level up with a beverage and did not need to use the glucogon pen.

well , it really depends on the person cause my aunt passed out with her blood sugar that low but, the lowest before you pass out is between 18 and 20.

No fixed lower limit, it differs from persons to another .

true stuff
I'd be pretty worried if it gets below 2 mmols. (Sorry in Australia we measure in mmols). We classify a hypo as being below 3.5 mmols, but everybody's body is different. Some crash out in the 2's. Others like me seem to go very very low sometimes in the 1's and still not pass out.

the lowest that I have been was 28.. I did not pass out. Sometimes i don't even realize when I am that low. Just the other day i was taking a nap and when ii woke up my blood sugar was 35.

each person has a different tolerance to low sugar, there is no identified "pass out range". But, low sugars, whether you pass out or not, are dangerous.

It is different for different people. Some would not be able to handle 30 where others would pass out at 50 etc. I have had my doctor go crazy on me for going as low as 60. I had no idea I was that low. I ate two meals and snacked and felt fine. I have treated patients who were delusional, seeing demons etc. who's level was 30 and until I got it back up to 70 did not realize I was not there to kill them.

It all depends on the person. I have been down to 28 while I was at work. I just felt a little woozy, like I usually do when I have low blood sugar. I was shocked when I found out how low it was. Normally I start to feel like I have low blood sugar when my readings are around 70, so when I saw the meter reading of 28, it blew my mind. I was a little confused, but was still alert and functioning. I have heard of people passing out when they got around 40. So, everyone is different. It is the same way with the higher blood sugar readings. This is why there is a range instead of just one number. We are all different.
