Yes. Low blood sugar can happen in people with Type 2 Diabetes who take medicines that increase insulin levels in the body.  Drinking alcohol when you’re on these medications can also lead to low blood sugar, especially if it replaces food.

Symptoms of hypoglycemia include:

  • shaking
  • dizziness
  • hunger
  • headache
  • sweating
  • trouble thinking
  • irritability or moodiness
  • rapid heartbeat

If you are on medicines that increase the amount of insulin in your body, be sure you know how to treat low blood sugar.
