glucose tests low

my glucose level for five tests in 2012 were from 88 to 106. Three days ago it was 61. I can get no info on this from the lab or doctor. I have not changed exercise or diet or medications.  but have  a stuporous, sick hour or so on waking. Could you please offer a comment about this?

HI and thanks for using the forum.

61 is a little low, but if you are feeling symptoms related to it, you should follow up with your doctor.  IF you are a diabetic, your medication may need adjustment.  IF you are not a diabetic, there are other possible causes for a low blood sugar including side affects from other medications, metabolic disorder, and alcohol consumption.  Follow up with your primary care doctor if these symptoms have persisted.  Good luck.
