Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Yes, it can be very dangerous, especially if otherwise too you have it below 100. Excessive alcohol intake, hepatitis, kidney disease, certain medications, disorders of adrenal gland etc can all cause hypoglycemia. It can also be caused by poor eating patterns. Rarely is it caused by insulin secreting tumors called insulinomas. These can secrete huge amounts of insulin after food and a person can suffer from hypoglycemia despite eating.
Many have polycystic disease of the ovary associated with insulin resistance. Increased insulin levels can cause hypoglycemia.  Discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining.
Hope this helps. Take care!
