The symptoms of low blood sugar range from mild to severe. Mild symptoms include hunger, sweating, headache, rapid heartbeat, and pallor. Moderate signs include irritability, poor coordination, lethargy, and confusion. Severe signs include losing consciousness or having seizures.
while severe symptoms are easy to spot, mild to moderate low blood sugar is not always easy to recognize. Some of the same symptoms might simply indicate a tired or sick child. The only way to tell for sure is to check the blood sugar levels. If for some reason a test is not possible, it is safer to assume that the cause of the child's behavior is low
